After 1000 plus takes...I got this.

I told myself...self, this looks like a woman.

Water is life.

So today is Elvis's Bday, and I predict through the spirit of Elvis that I will get a 4.5, with 9 comments most of them saying DNMC, or shoe horn.

I shoot for myself. This is not a shoehorn. My membership is up in April.

Yes, but, you can see the picture. 1 IS a bit harsh.

Actually, I'd bet there are micro-organisms in that water. I tried the personification of a water drop about a year ago just for the fun of it and ended up with the same results:
(Virgin Mary water drop)

I'm sure there are some catholics somewhere that still light candles and pray in front of my picture.

Love the power bokeh in your shot.

I thought about the whole "Water is Life" angle before I DNMC'd you. But then I re-read the challenge and it said "anything AS LONG AS IT'S ALIVE." Water is not alive. So, to be fair, I could not give you anything but a 1 on it even though it was a cool picture.

Sorry, it has to actually be alive. Cool pic, though.

I'm not sure what to think. I like it but does it fit the challenge? I don't know.

I wonder how a bit more contrast would work, to bring out the fairy from the bg?

I like the bokeh. It just looks a bit flat.

Great bokeh. Good composition. This image is lacking in contrast for the majority of the image, which I think hurts it a little.

Wonderful bokeh effect in this one - not sure the drop is clear enough though.

Great bokeh but way too much noise in the picture and IMO it does not meet the challenge :(

PS, I'm not voting on this challenge, just commenting on some pictures :)

Good try. I'm afraid just don't see this as fitting the topic, which was a very broad one. It is an interesting splash shot though, with a nice wall of bokeh.
