Very refreshing looking, Les. I love the exuberance and energy you have captured here and the way the water spray creates softens the lines of the building and lets us see it as if through a veil. Great MT entry!

Love all the fountain shots. Great moment captured here Les. Looks like so much fun. I'd be tempted myself even though I'm supposed to be "grown up."

Shame on you, Les, for hiding this one for so long. It's so dynamic, and the photographic tension created with the children in the back is wonderful!
