I'd bet if you withdraw it as an entry, it won't be counted.

Thanks, Sage. I wouldn't overdo it anyway. I don't know if I'll even get back out to purposely shoot water pictures again. If any more come up, it'll probably be happenstance. At the end of August I may throw up one or two more from the "Fire Water" series and leave it at that.

BTW, your pic is a great capture. I love it when the ducks do that. Much more so than when a dog does it. I went to a party by a lake last week and I swear the host's dog was seeking me out each time he came out of the water and shook off!

Bulu, please continue to seek out and photograph water through the summer! And everyone else do that too! I'm causing myself to look at water every day, and try to capture it differently and my shots aren't even eligible! Even if I do add some to the thread.

I tend to think of water as being beneficial but in a case such as this?... I think it to be more of a hindrance.

Can you feel the play and movement portrayal between the captured droplets and back?

I love that shot! Perfect example of really NOTICING the water, what it's doing and with this shot, how it may be affecting its surroundings and vice versa!
