Default As usual ... (5 imgs)

... the forum is filled with some great photos, and I have no idea for this month's challenge.

So instead, as I have finally finished playing with my Spain photos from November, here are some of a fountain.



Dead boring sky but I quite like the water



Ah, that's a bit better. Hang on, here comes a bit of wind



Oh, a much more interesting photo (or at least, I think so!)



Better still, and finally



These are all resized down (thanks to Flick) from 100% (1024 * 7678) crops.

Great use of backlighting to get that extra contrast - good work.

for some reason i only see 2 images and not the last one, which seems to be the favourite
but the 4th one with the added wind looks good
a very interesting take on a fountain

Great use of light to isolate the subject, and of shutter speed to stop the action. Very intriguing!

Really like 3 and 4. Imagined it as space monster attacking the earth's atmosphere with vile tentacles!

Thanks for the kind words. It's always nice when, having thought "Ooh, that'll make an interesting photo", it does
