Point and Shoot Competition #62: Water

The theme for the month is Water. This can be in any form and it must be the main subject of the photograph, even if other elements are in there.

The Rules

1. HAVE FUN!
2. Cameras:
No cameras with sensors larger than 1"
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use
No interchangeable lens cameras
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1 kg

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above)
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder cameras
Interchangeable or Fixed-lens 110 film SLRs and Pentax Q
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6 and 6x4.5 Medium Format "Folding", "Box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras (subject to 1 kg weight limitation)

3. Entries will close on January 31, 2012. Since I am in Australia, that will be at 12 midnight Australian Eastern Standard Time on January 31. Or, more likely, 7am on February 1st, AEST, since its highly unlikely I'll be awake to shut the shop then

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels

5. Max of 3 image entries per person, from archives or fresh. Entries may be withdrawn or changed

6. Listing camera brand & model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

7. Post processing is fine.

8. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date, and judge’s next competition

9. HAVE FUN!

A couple of examples:

Subject is water:



Subject is not water, even though there's a lot of water in there:

I'll apologise ahead of time if I remain somewhat disconnected from the comp. I'll try to keep up but may not be able at times: just giving headsup... you lot are not being ignored. Life conspires to change one's direction from time to time.

I don't know whether it is possible or not to rename the thread, but this should be the contest #62, as there are two contests numbered as #60.

I'm afraid only a moderator can rename the thread itself.

Great theme by the way, Sue!

Thanks, Bart, I'll ask someone to do it. And since I don't know who the mods are, I'll ask Adam. (done, hope he has time)

Ms indecisive kayaker will be looking at precisely 40,000 pics between now and the end of the month trying to pick 3.

Ah yes, but the water needs to be the main subject.
Which limits my choices considerably.

Not that I have even close to 100 to choose from

Shot with the Q while passing a tanker in a heavy rainstorm. The spray thrown off by the truck gave about 30% visibility... they looked like fog making machines
