A dancer's shadow in a blue-tiled pool. The lighting was very important for this picture, so the perfect shadow could be cast.

Although the size is sure to lower your overall score, I like the idea you have going and will score it as though it were a larger size. Good Job.

Use more pixels, not a bad shot (may actually be pretty good) but you are going to suffer in the scoring because of the small size of the image.

My favorite from this challenge, well done ;)

I like this one. Wish it was that warm here. I can tell it's warm by the way the water isn't one big frozen chunk of ice.

Is this one testing the temp of the water?

Great shot! Would benefit from a larger file size.

Unique take on the challenge, but I "get" the dance and can sense the movement.

You'll probably cop it for it being small, but I really like it. 9

I really like this one. Pretty cool. Wish it was warmer here so I could go swimming!

You should make your entry larger. I'm convinced that this will cost you votes.

a good idea, maybe a little of the right side of the photo should be cropped, it's hard to tell at this size. It should really be larger.

I like the idea of the shadow but I think your biggest problem here is going to be the size. You really should make use of the 800 pixels allowed. This is just too small to be able to judge it well and I think a lot of voters are going to hit you with 1's and 2's quickly just because of the size. This may help except the link was when the max was 640 and it is now 800 but that is the only difference. Hope this helps and good luck.

nice simple shot. I would have been nice if the pools edge did not have the clutter near it which is showing up in the shadows.
