nicely done.
04/21/2002 02:00:00 AM
I dont know why I initally rates this so low. This is actually a vary nice stop image shot. I like the narrow range of focus. Good composition.
04/20/2002 03:24:00 PM
I have to say you had the best water shot in the challenge, great job, nice composition.
04/20/2002 12:43:00 PM
great how you stopped the action and caught the color
04/20/2002 10:21:00 AM
Very crystalin shot. sharp definition on droplets of water and I like the deformation of the surface. The little green dot in the near center of the picture is most distracting.
04/20/2002 09:01:00 AM
Great clear shot, with a very soft feeilng to it. Very well done.
04/20/2002 05:07:00 AM
This is right on. I love it. The colors, the comp, the action. Good luck.
04/19/2002 03:10:00 PM
Surreal image that is brilliantly executed.
04/19/2002 01:55:00 PM
Nice. Too cliche though.
04/19/2002 12:26:00 PM
It's a top! Its a water pistol! It's a shock wave!, oh, wait, just rain. Excellent!
04/19/2002 12:18:00 PM
Definetly the coolest of all the water photos! Too bad its just not that original
04/19/2002 01:46:00 AM
the short depth of field works well here, but I would have exposed it a touch darker.
04/19/2002 12:38:00 AM
The perfect spherical droplet. I can feel the shockwave racing outward towards me from each droplet. Reminds me of "Honey I shrunk the kids". I am very impressed with your timing. Great shot!!
04/18/2002 03:18:00 PM
Bright, clear water. Good angle. One of the better water photos, I think.
04/18/2002 11:00:00 AM
personally i love water,and its really a true beauty to a water drip's motion stop. you could see how crystal clear and vital the water is and i also love the focus on the water and background is just blurry...
04/18/2002 08:03:00 AM
Nice macro work. Gravity demands a little CCW rotation, but this is nice and sharp. The depth of field is right on, just softening the very bottom of the frame and getting the drop and all of that great, soft first swell in perfect focus. Distilled water next time.
04/17/2002 11:28:00 PM
droplets getting to be a theme?
04/17/2002 03:58:00 PM
Beautiful timing, very impressive
04/17/2002 01:17:00 PM
Nice shot! You really captured the "contact splash" well. The blurriness of the background makes the water drop sharper, I think (betcha have comments both ways on this)>
04/17/2002 10:47:00 AM
excellent texture on that water! i wonder what the scale is here?
04/17/2002 09:53:00 AM
I like the touch of color provided by the rainbows in the water.
04/17/2002 03:46:00 AM
well caught, technically spot on - maybe if you had delayed your shot by 0.00004 of a millysec you would have frozen the splash!!!
04/16/2002 07:50:00 PM
04/16/2002 06:29:00 PM
Makes me thirsty looking at it! Nice shot. I like the off center framing, you managed to keep the ripple in the frame. A slightly tilted angle might make it more interesting
04/16/2002 05:53:00 PM
the colors reflected in the water are neat, wonderful capture.
04/16/2002 05:45:00 PM
Incredible detail.
04/16/2002 05:33:00 PM
Excellent rainobwing effects, great composition, nice and close, I like it.
04/16/2002 11:34:00 AM
Excellent! Perfect timing, great focus, very good composition. Very compelling photograph. Bravo!
04/16/2002 12:06:00 AM
Absolutly beautiful. You cought not only the drops, but the spash too
04/15/2002 11:49:00 PM
*Gasp* This is so beautiful! The two suspended drops are ethereal. And the mound made by the impact is gripping also. Well-cropped, nice off-center emphasis, lighting nicely reflected.
04/15/2002 09:41:00 PM
Very clean, Good shot!!
04/15/2002 08:44:00 PM
Ineresting low-angle perspective, and I like the bi-colored look of the upper drops.
04/15/2002 06:39:00 PM
Great detail.
04/15/2002 05:24:00 PM
FANTASTIC ! In The Top Three. The best of the water shots. 10
04/15/2002 04:58:00 PM
04/15/2002 04:38:00 PM
A very successful water shot. Did you consider all black and white?
04/15/2002 03:57:00 PM
Great photo! You used good technique and captured the movement well.
04/15/2002 01:59:00 PM
water.. go figure
04/15/2002 01:22:00 PM
Best title of the thousand or so water drip photos I must have seen today.
04/15/2002 01:14:00 PM
You must have an amazing camera
04/15/2002 12:11:00 PM
Very pretty!
04/15/2002 11:41:00 AM
Well executed.
04/15/2002 11:39:00 AM
Best Water Shot so far .
04/15/2002 11:33:00 AM
very cool - like the DOF ... it really makes me stare in amazement at the droplets
04/15/2002 11:22:00 AM
This is an awesome picture. It looks fake. Good job!
04/15/2002 10:32:00 AM
This is a nice macro view... The only improvement I could suggest is centering it up a little... Nice work!
04/15/2002 09:04:00 AM
Great close up and I like the rainbow sparkles in it.
04/15/2002 08:31:00 AM
Now this is a AWESOME water/stop action capture. The brightness and natural color here and there and crisp clean overall feel to it are great !
04/15/2002 07:25:00 AM
Cool - well captured, I tried to get this for ages and gave up :) Nicely framed and great focus/ depth of field use.
