WTG Carla!! Double gold, that's awesome. Love this shot, masterfully done. #10354458

Photographer 10/6/2012 10:49:15 AM

Carla, congratulations on your prize.
This is a great drop-shot. As you explained: In drop-photos the main beauty is in the background (assuming good timing, short exposure, sharpness and a lot of other technicalities). You made it all come together beautifully here.
I had a similar entry in August, but I am happy to see your photo winning the drop-contest of the month.
My best regards
Peder. #10358071
