It's amazing that people will think you've ripped off an "original" idea from someone in here when, in fact that person saw it in a magazine first. I like this photo..just thought I'd say so. There always seem to be a few idiots in here looking to bash everything though. Good luck in the future. :)

I've seen this technique on a flat pane of glass, but not on a vertical pane! Super job!

very cool
11/16/2002 05:46:00 PM
Very clever shot.
11/14/2002 04:36:00 PM
It's ok....this idea is started to get overused though...

Good job! Grayce

This is sort of a ripped off idea, but done fairly well. It's unusual that the drops are varied shapes as opposed to all circles. Nice job - Inspzil

Good eye for detail and really well pulled off. excellent
11/13/2002 06:17:00 PM
wow how many times can this idea be regurgitated .. fine it was arty by the first person whi did it .. try a variation
11/13/2002 05:23:00 PM
cool, u can see all those houses, and almost all the angles, very neat, i rate this a 7
11/13/2002 01:54:00 PM
nice, I am sure many have mentioned J.M. Seltzer here, this does remind me of his work.
Very well done and still different.

A good try at the (Liberty And Justice) winning picture from a previous challenge.
On that photo the droplets were perfectly round and well spaced out. 6 marbo.

This is so cool. when the photo is a 10 it's hard to make any constructive comments. You've already done it right. Can't help you any here. 10 it is. PTL This is a favorite

One day I'm going to use this technique. Hope I am as successful as you were here. I really like the color tonality.
11/12/2002 02:41:00 PM

I would like to try this type of shot. It would be nicer if your water beads were a bit rounder and more uniform, it is a little tought to tell what you are looking at. DPz

Very good photo, but the technique has been so overused lately. -7 for doing it well.
11/11/2002 10:28:00 PM
Great execution of a creative idea
11/11/2002 08:28:00 PM
Exceptionall composition, I would make it a winner!!!
11/11/2002 06:52:00 PM
cool idea...not to hard to get, but cool none the less
11/11/2002 06:45:00 PM
Very Cool. Love this shot.
11/11/2002 04:06:00 PM
The thumbnail really doesn't do this justice. A good variation on Setzler's 'Liberty And Justice'.
11/11/2002 03:03:00 PM
hmmm, nice image. The water droplets ( or beads i guess ) needed some work , round ones would've looked better, i read in the tutorial that using rain-X on the glass would've helped. but then i guess the gravity woud've pulled them down since the glass seems to be positioned vertically. i gave it a 7 for trying, took off 3 for not coming up with an original idea.

OK. This has been done over and over, but I think it's a great effect. Really like the colours and the reflection. Jacko. 7

This method of shot has been done quite a bit lately. I do however, like the clearity of the house in all of the water drops.
11/11/2002 08:10:00 AM
Hey, this looks like my house!
11/11/2002 07:24:00 AM
absolutly bloody awesome this deserves to win 10
11/11/2002 06:52:00 AM
Intresting. Wondering what could have been done so that the water would have taken a more natural shape towards less surface tension. Next time try cleaning the glass Thus causing the water to bead a little more so you could have better rounder drops. I might be too critical but I am a scientist. Thats my Job. Try that and let me know if the picture turns out better.

Plagarism.. Sorry, but this is a blatent rip off of "liberty and justince", sure its a great shot, but originality is everything to me.. 5
11/11/2002 01:18:00 AM
Pretty neat!
