Beautiful shot and I think it fitted the challenge perfectly......isn't it frustrating to listen to comments that are so.......cough cough..choking...clearing throat....spit it out..........STUPID.....yes I said it.

eh....I'm not really worried most of them seem to be gone....

I gave this a rotten score, because of fitness for the challenge, and I guess because I was in a bad mood.

But in all seriosity, it's a fine image. Okay ... there are some flaws ... but they add vs. detract.

I completely agree those of us that have water are truly rich! We just are often too dumb to realize it.
I like your shot and interpretation

Maybe a better title to explain it. "Hard to live without" "Even Rich People Need Water"

Okay...I will answer the obvious question here. I live in the Outback where we are classed as drought stricken. Water is restricted. Farmers are really crying out for the available water. Therefore this man made waterfall photographed in this area is a luxury....! Now this may not make sense to city dwellers or people who do not have to succumb to water restrictions but try living without water. It is a necessity, therefore water used in this form is showing affluency.

a weak photo that doesnt meet the challenge. Nothing special about the waters and could have been done by anyone with a long exposure camera. why do you think running water would have fitted the Affluence challenge?

Great shot...but can't tell the point? Is that gold?

Nice picture other than it doesn't meet the challenge.

Sorry, I see no relevance to the challenge here at all. Even though its a decent photo, I gotta vote it low, sorry.

affluence? abundance? close, but no cigar... can not relate this picture to the challenge as it was stated, so i am not voting on it, just leaving the comment...

This is quite the stretch into "affluence". Did you get a lot of good shots for "long exposure" or something? LOL. It's a great photo, but I only get the verbal "spill over" connection to affluence. The photo doesn't do that by itself.

Affluent not "A Fluid." Another amazing capture but not for this challenge.
08/04/2005 03:23:05 PM
This challenge called specifically for "material wealth." Check the instructions. This photo misses the mark.
I reconsidered and think this does meet the challenge. Bumping score. Lovely mood, but, don't care for the way the water looks so fake.

Nice shot but maybe better for the long exposure challenge, not 'affluence' IMHO
08/03/2005 01:21:31 PM
This is a lovely picture but IMO it would have done better in the long exposure challenge.
08/03/2005 11:39:20 AM
over my head I think
08/03/2005 11:37:26 AM
Decent pic -- i like the smooth effect of slow shutter. Nothing to do with Affluence though-- Actually I really like the picture - not just decent it's very good. But it does not signify material wealth in any way

This is a gorgeous photo ... among the best in the challenge. But to the disinterested observer, there doesn't seem to be a direct link to the challenge theme.
