Shot outdoors during a rain shower. I wiped the pattern into the fog on my window and shot from it.

Very interesting shot, Katrina. And the title says it all. I very much like this as an abstract thought and could see this on the wall. Who needs fancy special effects when you have a hand to create them, eh? Nice work. #2300208

Thanks, Mick! I hope the judges like it! ; )

Dale Hardin November 09, 2011

Katrina, this is out standing and well deserving of the win. The concept and the complimentary colors make this stand out in every way. The composition is excellent also with the ROT of the yellow coupled with the soft diagonal of the blues at the top tie this together perfectly. Well done. #9794877

Katrina McMeans November 10, 2011

Thank you so much, Dale :) #9795894
