Thanks again to Chris for choosing my photo. For the next challenge I chose 'water'. It is a perennial topic of conversation in our household, so show us your photos of water in all of its guises.

The competition is open until 18/4.

Please refer to the comprehensive list of previous topics and winners via the links below:

72-Hour Challenge Hall of Fame (2013 Q1)

72-Hour Challenge Hall of Fame (2012)

72 Hour Challenge Rules

As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72 hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos shot with camera in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a blue ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for the 72-hr Blue Ribbon Challenge.

Thank you to everyone who participated. I enjoyed all the entries and really like the various interpretations. Choosing three favourites was difficult.

3rd Place - ptolemyx
I liked the way that the image implies the water.

2nd Place - rhoydotp
Just a stunning image. Loved the light, the reflection and the tranquility.
