no editing took place apart from cropping, took about 150 shots to get this image
Only 150 shots! Good capture. Well done.
P.S. The sharpness of the shot is brilliant.
Well worth all the hard work.Brilliant.click.
Just brilliant, a real stunner. Your reflexes are really something to grab a shot like this, even allowing for 150 tries.
(Patience is pretty good too!)
Fabulous! How did you synchronise the lighting?
Brilliant shot! Did you use flash?
all i used was the flash on the camera, the room was filled with fluresent lighting.
Great job - I'm not sure I'd have the patience to perserver! If you fancy another go - try and get the whole splash - feel free to swear at me!
The thing that suprises me is just how little noise you have. You must have shot at ISO 100? The lighting and focus are spot on too. I have to agree with Edward - if you havn't gone totally loopy doing this, another 200 - 300 shots should get the whole splash zone
Great work - clicked
Excellent! Well worth the effort.
Have to agree that it may be more effective with the whole splash in there.
Great work though!
Well worth the effort, great to look at.
sorry to be a downer but this is not as sharp as it seems and the apple could be much sharper than it is. The framing is a little out too. (I am standing well back from the 'dropin water club' and the fall out)
Don't agree with Keith, although I see where he is coming from. The sharpness of the apple is not issue to me. The lovely ridge of water at the front of the frame is what makes it. Might have been nicer to see the full splash, but is great as it is.
Been thinking of trying a shot like this for ages. This has inspired me to have a proper go!
Fantastic capture, the crispness of the water is simply outstanding.
look good. real good. nice composition, really clean.
I guess the apple is fairly clean by now - after all that dunking!
I agree with the comments re including the whole of the splash in the frame. The slightly blurred look to the apple is puzzling as the ring of the splash is all in sharp focus and it was captured by flash. I can only guess that it is the illumination from the fluorescent lighting that has recorded the movement of the apple. Best to do this sort of thing in low light – if using a flash that is!
All that said – I still like it and have ‘clicked’.
I have lost count of the hours I have spent trying to perfect this type of shot to no avail, it looks like you've mastered it, like others have said it would have been nice to see the whole splash...but a fantastic image nonetheless.
Good capture must have taken for ever to get.
Well done Jon, good shot & a well deserved EC.
Well done on your EC. It's a good capture, something I would not attempt, well worth a click.
Well done on your award, a stunning shot, well taken.
Blimey! - that's all I can think of to say!
this is so fresh...i will have to try....mmm let me see bucket...yes...water...yes...fruit...yes...ability....dho!...lol...click
Congrats on the EC, well deserved
excellent..its all been said! click!
wow, that is a gorgeous shot, incredible
Fantastic effort Jonny, love the sharpness of the water, imagine how much you would have spent trying to get this shot with a film camera $$$$$$$$$$$'s. i guess there is an arguement for digital at times
Think with digital on action pictures you have to click just before the splash . This is fantastic and well worth the Editors Choice . Well now I will click AFTER the splash . Good luck in EPZ
Applaud your patience, fantasic shot
Well worth the time and effort put in on this one.
Excellent image, well done and congrats on a deserved EC.
This is Fantastic !! I like the grey type colour of the water, and you used half an apple... good thinking !!
Congrats on the EC too
Fantastic work,you put alot of effort into this and it was well worth it,well taken.congratulations on the EC*click*
A shot someone with 40 years experience would be proud of. Very well done. Debbie x
This is great how did you do it. without jamie there i presume! would defo want one of these. CLICK
Great image, very pleasing effect. I have a few water shots in my portfolio but not as good as this.
Super shot well deserving of EC
Wow, great image.
Waw waw wow!
Thank you for sharing
Amazing shot. DOF is superb. click
Fantastic shot. I've never tried this type of picture, but I reckon the Canon EOS 300D is very capable. Would you recommend it?
