Cracking shot. Do you use an IR trigger or just fire the shutter when you think it is right?

Amazing shot! I have several water shots in my portfolio, all well focused etc...but they don't have the watery shine and reflection that you have achieved here...well if this aint EC material then I don't know what is.


P.S. Please tell me your secret :o)

350 shots, eh? Well the hard work certainly paid off. Just as well you were using a digicam and not a film one. Lol!!

Very nicely done, you have my click. I love your angle of approach and the sheen on the water. I did one similar a few months back. They are a lot of fun, especially when you nail it... which you certainly have done.

Welcome to the site. This is a superb shot. You have proved, yet again, that genius is 99% hard work and the critical 1% pure inspiration. A well deserved EC, I just can't wait to see what the next 3 from 1000 shots will show us. You have set yourself (and the rest of us) one heck of a standard to follow!

What a fantastic picture, well done.
350 to get it though ...that's got to be a good argument for the digital v film discussions (and there have been many!!)

just so stunning. i've never seen anything so sharp. like someone turned up the sharpness on my monitor. what a moment you caught. good thing you weren't using film...

i keep checking back to see if you will share your secret about what you used a background.

Could you please post the rest of your photos on another web site please because I'm jealous - only joking! You've made my boring day in to a happy one. BRILLIANT.
25 Feb 2004 9:44PM
great shot - more please...
25 Feb 2004 11:40PM

What can I say, I'm staggered by the response. I knew it was a nice shot, but didn't know it would have this much impact, not get an editor's award!

How did I do it?

- Blue Washing Up Bowl, brim full.
- Towel to catch overspill!
- Water is dropped from a container, so flows at regular intervals, and more importantly lands on same spot each time.
- 1 Flashgun, on camera.
- 3 spare hours.....Wink
Trial and error. Some times you get the shot, sometimes you get flat water. IT's digital...just repeat until bored, or your flash batteries run out!
