Water Works

This week, your picture must contain water as the main subject. This can be out of a tap, in a glass, in a river, in lakes, or coming down from the sky. It is water, water, everywhere!

Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

Zz.

I thought that the emphasis is more on the stream of water and you can see the scattering and reflecting of light below the stream of water and it looked really good!... at least to me HAH!

Imageshack can be flaky. Just give it a day or so. It's not as if the polling is going to start soon. If it still doesnt' show up, upload your picture again and re-link it here.

Please read the rules in the first post. You cannot use the attachment. Rather, upload your picture to one of the picture hosting website, and use the IMG tags to display your picture here.

Lord only knows why, but if I push 'reply with quote' and then push back it displays fine...

Thanks! It's at Potteric Carr nature reserve, near Doncaster, South Yorkshire. The whole place is cris-crossed with railway lines so there's a few bridges like that. Despite that it's a remarkably serene place. Here's another shot of it:

The link is beautiful too, lovely soft feel and colours, but I love them combined with such strong contrasts of light and shade and the strong repeating shapes, all balanced, in the one you submitted especially.
