This week's theme on the WeeklyFstop was something we all need but rarely appreciate as much as we should. Our readers got their feet wet with an awesome top ten list all featuring photos of water.
Water can be a very fun thing to photograph and experiment with. The fluid nature of its liquid state leads to something different in every frame when working with splashes and waves. Underwater shots have much different light properties and weightlessness evident in flowing hair. Shooting moving water with long exposure creates a silky smooth effect that almost seems like something from a dream.
Check out these great examples and feel free to share one of your favorite water photos in the comments.

I love the tone of this shot as well as the subtle touches of light. The processing gives and glow from the rod give a real aura of mystery. The result is both visually interesting and otherworldly. Great shot!

What Is This Week's Theme and How Do I Enter?
I coach my youngest son's soccer team. It has been a blast, but it is also about to come to an end. Our last game is Monday, followed by the league's picnic party. That gave me the idea that it would be cool to see what people can come up with for "party" as a theme. So, at a great risk of dating myself a bit here: "Party on, Wayne. Party on, Garth."
To enter, simply use the hashtag #weeklyFstopParty on any public Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr post between now and our next weeklyFstop article. Please keep it to one entry per week to keep it fair and less cluttered.
Here are the previous week's results for anyone who may have missed them:
- Leading Lines
- Long Exposure
Remember, there is no guarantee posting a photo will result in it being featured. If you happened to submit but fell short, please don't be discouraged. Keep shooting and try to gain techniques or ideas from the photos that are selected. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, feel free to contribute in the comments. I'm always open to future theme suggestions. I hope you are all enjoying the theme as much as I am.
