Default Gallery: Wired.com Readers Photograph NYC Waterfalls

</img>: While New York City's summer waterfall art installation by Olafur Eliasson is impressive in its scope, its impact on observers is varied. We asked our readers to show us their take on the project by submitting their own photos. Some views are beautiful, others ordinary, but they all amount to an interesting experiment in crowdsourced photography.
Click through the gallery to see our selections from the reader's submissions, all of which can be viewed on the original submissions page along with more information. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
