    Thank you all for your kind comments . Yes Babysitter , I thought / feared most in Melbourne would make a Bee Line for the Art Gallery . But once I was able to capture the two young chaps I would have been happy to have simply kept the shot for my own archive .
Mr Saywer , the boys are on the outside of the window as is the water running down the window . I was sitting in the foyer . I can remember the Gallery being built , when I was a fair bit younger than these two lads . Many years ago now . It caused a great deal of interest and has been a bit of an icon here in Melbourne since its first day of operation . Thanks all again .

    I though of this for my filter too, but suspected that the Melbourne people would head straight for it. Nice effect and good subject.

    Made my top ten. Are the boys reaching to touch the water, or is the water on your side of the glass? Nice find.

    That is a artistic filter, makes the picture look as an oil painting. My first choice.

    Excellent composition, excellent timing. Very attractive filter. I suspect that this shot would score a lot higher than the same shot without the water filter. It says a lot about the activity without getting bogged down with a detailed representation of the two boys.

My only niggle is the identification of the location. I thought that was discouraged by the rules. Having said that, I would have guessed the location anyway. I've also seen shots taken at an unmistakeable location that turned out to have been taken by a visitor, not the member who resides near that location. In sum, the location influenced my vote not a whit.

    This is a beautiful choice for a filter. It adds an interesting effect to the photo, while retaining a lot of detail in the subjects. Well done.

    I think this is brilliant. The effect and the subjects are just perfect.

    Excellent example of an ad hoc filter. I like the fact that some detail is preserved in anoverall impressionistic setting. In my top 5.

    Good composition and it tells a story. I like this.

    Very striking - really like the strong dark/light contrasts and the placement of the figures. The water wall distortion gives the feel of an impressionist painting.

    Good work with the composition. The image has a narrative as well as being an attractive photograph.

    Beautiful impressionism! (How I love that Water Wall!) The figures are well placed. In my top few.

    This one grows on me - nicely composed and some real texture. Would love to see this in its full pixel count.
