Welcome to ePhotozine!

I think this works rather nicely and shows the interesting shapes of the water moves through as it falls. The background is nicely blurred, too. The shot is very blue but a white balance adjustment would take care of that.

There are two main ways of photographing water. One is to use a fast shutter speed, as you've done here, and capture the shapes the water flows into, which the human eye never sees because it moves too quickly. The other is to use a slow shutter so the water blurs into a smooth stream; that usually needs a tripod but you can sometimes rest the camera on the edge of the fountain, a wall or something like that. In both cases, a burst of flash can add sparkle to the droplets.

Dave.

You've caught the water beautifully. I really like it when water is caught so brilliantly sharp - a slice in time. Personally, I'm not a fan of 'milky' water we so often see running through an image of a river.

Having the image with a blue cast makes the image feel really cold - was the blue from choice, or accidental? (If accidental then Dave has kindly explained how to correct it!). Smile

Yes it was accidental actually, but thank you for pointing that out! I'll try to remember that the next time I take photos like these Wink
