And again, we are all looking for inspiration and competitions seem to get the creative juices flowing. We are continuing with the weekly challenges.

The winner gets to judge the following week. Here are the rules. Hope this catches on. I will be the judge and the winner will set the next week's theme and then be the judge for that theme. Please hold comments until after the winner is announced.

The fifth challenge, #5, is "WATER." Use your imagination and creativity to capture the photo you feel best represents this week’s theme. Have fun!!!

Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Camera
2. Time - any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the judge will decide if it works.
4. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & Lensbaby used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends - 9pm EST (eastern) TUESDAY NOVEMBER 11, 2008. Winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.

Shot with a Nikon D300, not positive about the aperature, probably 5.6 or 8, shutter 1/1300 and iso 400. For post processing, did what I call Soft Light Contrast. I dupe the image as a layer, set blend to "Soft Light" and adjust the opacity to 50% give or take 25%. :-)

Thanks everyone for participating in this challenge. Here are the results.
First goes to BearwoodsDavid, beautiful waterfall, nicely composed.
Second goes to WilliamE, I like the reflections in the water.
Third goes to Tokengirl , I like the fact that you thought outside the box which is what I was really hoping everybody would do. The shadow in the background is a little distracting for me though.

Again thanks everyone and lets keep this going.
