    Great use of the spraying water to serve as a background! Very well done.

    Why are the top and bottom margins so much larger than the side margins?

    Really nice shot. Needs seen in Lytebox to do it full justice.

    Really good action shot. Very good balance with the background very nicely covered by the spray. Did you post process some of that in at all? If you a neat job and if not it really helps isolate the subjects.

    Thanks for all of your comments.

    Mike the margins are down to the fact that I enter a fair number of competitions run in the UK and by FIAP internationally. For projection purposes, they require a standard format - generally 1400 x 1050 pixels. If your image doesn't conform to that, they request that it is presented against a background that does. I've been lazy and just downsized the whole image to the forum requirements.

    Barry, there has been some post processing. The edge of a bridge has been cloned out in the top left corner and so has part of a bright orange buoy on the right. They were a bit distracting.
