Photographer's Note

Posting this (final - promise!) shot of the Santa Monica Pier is a result of the very helpful criticisms of Splash I and II urging me to devellop a better composition (Splash I had no proper motive and Splash II showed nothing about the place).

After many hours of cropping in the 25 shots I fired during those 10 minutes of golden light I've ended up with this one with a pillar in the foreground, the liquid fireworks in the middle and the cluster of pillars in the background.

It works for me and I have benefitted greatly from your criticisms along the way. Thanks guys! (Special thanks to Fil for advising me on sharpening (used a bit of on the splashes in the middle.)) The shot was handheld.
