Darek Kubicz: Fantastic shot... great idea for adding the fancy colour to normally colourless water, that makes the "drop photo" unique...It was worth it to make 600 pictures to get this one...Congratulations!
Thank you. You are very kind :-).
mike schm: This picture is amazing at full size. Did you use a ruler to get the exact dof?
LOL. No :-) . I just focussed roughly where the drops were landing :-)
Well done Zhaark. This must be one of your most successful photos.
Why? Does the stewing flavour the eggs in some way through the shells?
Awwwww. So cute!
It can't be any fun though for the mother to give birth to these!
Michael Piziak: Why did the fungi leave the party ?
I don't know. Why did the fungi leave the party?
Thank you all for your very generous comments :-) . I must admit that I was hoping my photo would make the top 10, but I guess there are a lot of bird lovers out there. Many of the top 10 are excellent though and I would have been proud to have taken the winning photo :-) .
Like 'cfj2' says, I hope my photo fits a challenge sometime in the future and that that challenge host allows previously entered photos!
Thanks again all. Your kind comments meant as much to me as the first place would have! :-) .
I can see you! ;-)
Lovely photo. Looks a lot like the top of Darran Park in Ferndale but I guess it isn't.
Cute kid :-)
InTheMist: 149 of us are going to lose a second time!
LOL. I never thought of it that way! :-D .
But probably only one will come second ;-) .
That's OK. I was only teasing :-) . I thought it might be something like that. That is very fair-minded of you not wanting to bias the voting. Thank you for the smile. It is as broad and friendly as the one in your photo :-). Neil.
A woman of few words! Rare indeed, LOL.
Thank you ever so much. 10 out of 5 is a very generous score :-D . I must congratulate you too on the quality of many of your challenge entries!
Good result Zhaark. I think you might have been pushing the 'No major PP' rule a bit considering how you have said this photo was constructed - " The photo is 6 images layered and merged into one image. The original image is the two big bubbles on the left side. 2nd image is the small bursting bubble on the left bottom side. 3rd, 4th and 5th image is the small white soap drops that resembles the stars on the lefthand side. 6th and final image is the bubbles on the righthand side, this image was flipped and added. Hope this explains a little about my photo " .
Yes. I thought my photo fitted the theme of the challenge and upuaut gave no indication that photos couldn't be re-entered. I am proud to have taken this photo and it is one of my favourites so I am always keen to enter it in a suitable challenge. I am taking new photos and when the right challenge comes around, I will enter these too :-) .
I took this one in October : http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=800154
Nice shot of the St Fagans Blacksmith. Whenever I go there the room is always heaving so I've so far failed to photograph it myself. Well done :-).
Many congrats Zhaark :-). This photo has done you well. I meant to enter my 5 metal ball photo but forgot. I doubt it would have changed the result ;-) . Well done.
What are they doing to this poor person? Was she ill? If she wasn't, why are they in the white overalls?
