I noticed going through the photos of the week that since people only vote for the photos they really like and everyone seems to like one photo or another, most all photos in the competition had a rating of 8-9.50. No one ever rated any other ones. This is my attempt and varying the scores a bit by rating all the ones I come upon. Please excuse my lack of comments on some photos
Without reading the description I'd have little idea what this is, Rather blurred, would make an interesting aspect of a perhaps wider shot? Way to be dedicated and get the photo Smile

Umm, well of course its blurred - that's what happens if you have a long exposure of moving water! But maybe you mean the BG detail - caused by water on front of camera

I expected the water to be blurred of course Smile Yeah, I was referring to the stuff in the background. It'd be something to see you in progress of getting this photo--i had a feeling had I tried this my camera would be producing blurred images from then on once I fell.

Oh thanks for the "in progress" suggestion! Tricky enough getting this shot, especially as camera upside down, 2 inches from water! So it was take pic, check result, take pic. Miracle I didn't end up falling in (rock v slippery), tho' ironically, camera was perfectly safe.

Actually, got me thinking: next time I will try and do a series. Just that this time I wanted to see if it could produce an OK shot at all (been meaning to take it for months! And we've just had a good bit of rain)

Nice idea but you really need camera support for a shot like this. It can't be done really successfully handheld, I think.

If you look you'll see 1/8 - impossible handheld. Used a tripod stretched across chute
