Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Water III (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Date: Apr 7, 2008
Aperture: f/4.0
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/200th sec
Galleries: Emotive, Water
Date Uploaded: Apr 13, 2008

The fountain at Belagio in Las Vegas. I took a ton of shots, and had some really good candidates, but for some reason I inverted this, and it just looked cool.

Kind of abstract... capturing the velocity of the water canons (it looks pretty cool right-side-up as well).

pp:
convert from raw (two different exposure temps)
combined in CS3
rotate 180
crop (this looks so much better large)
cropped out some very minor background lights & reflections
curves
contrast
ni on top water
USM
border
SFW

Probably won't be the typical shot (that's exactly what I was going for... getting people to look twice & try to figure out what the heck it is).

Hope it does okay :O)

This reminds me of that movie Splash w/ Daryl Hannah & Tom Hanks.

Very busy and (to me) unidentifiable.

I look forward to seeing the making of this image. It seems familiar like something that was turned upside down in a previous challenge. Then again, maybe not. The various shades of blue are always nice and seem to work well in challenges.
