This is the 2008 version of ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/565/120/420927.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/565/120/420927.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Processing was basically just curves, hue/saturation a bit, rotate to straighten horizon, select a feathered selection around rider and then change to select inverse and then noise ninja (if you do it on the part with the rider it causes halos). I then cropped out a few of the large water droplets that were causing specular hightlights but left most of them in to show depth. Add border and save for web.

Awesome! I gave this an 8 in voting. Love the water drops just hanging in space along with the guy!

I hate sports shots, but I still gave this a 7 because it's so perfect. The silhouetting and the light in the water drops... perfect.

Gorgeous light, wonderful silhoutte. The spray/droplets and even the rope adds to the shot !!
