So this is sort of my wife's idea, but she did something else! I setup a light in the bathroom and filled the spa, added lots of bubbles! I hid under the water (with a hose so I could breathe) and stuck my leg out whilst Bec pressed the shutter for the continuous shooting and jumped in!

POST CHALLENGE: Woot! What a way to start the year with my first ribbon! I have to thank my wife ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' -bec- for her help and for not holding me under the water for too long! Though I must admit I enjoyed the view! ;) Thanks everyone!

Also, no I don't have a club foot! I have a stocky build and I was trying to point my toes! hehehe

Congrats on your ribbon. While you won the ribbon for this photo, I find your other more serious photos to be real winners also. I am surprised that this is your first.

Valid question. The rules do state that someone else may press the shutter for you as long as you have set up the shot. The reason my wife pressed the shutter was that it was a lot easier for her to do it than me, as I was under water. And yes, she came up with the idea...can't argue with that!

This is just "awesome"..... A "BLUE" ribbon.

The only thing I would have like to have seen, was that both you and your wife, had taken out a ribbon each, as both entries, are excellent in my opinion.....
