Shower. Some lads – who might have had a drink or two – were cooling off in the Neptunbrunnen (the Neptune Fountain) below the TV tower in Berlin, and I grabbed a couple of shots as I went about my sightseeing. It's cropped fairly tight and the saturation of some bright shapes in the background reduced somewhat. Although it's not my normal sort of image I quite like it, and I felt it captured that sharp-intake-of-breath moment as he stepped under the cold water. But in competition the judge said that nothing is sharp and that therefore he wasn't happy with it at all.

Technical: NIKON D300, f=200.0 mm, ISO320, 1/500 sec @ f6.3
