Dancing Water

By TrevBatWCC    
Leaving the indoor Oranje Nassau pavilion, I went and sat opposite this fountain to rest the weary legs, just behind where the girl is stood left of centre in the version. I had the intention of trying to show movement in the fountain's spouting water so, resting the elbows on the knees to steady the camera, zoomed in and shot the lead image at 1/6 second. Just as I was about to press the shutter button two people walked by behind the fountain, so grabbed the shot whilst they were still in view, capturing their movement too.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile

The accidental tourist - one of those shots that happened - looks like dancing ghosts.

Wonderful shot Trev, the ducks are totally indifferent to what's going on.

Apologies Trev but my poor taste standards suggest I prefer (just) the variation.

Older, grey-haired people don't move that fast, Trev, so you need the long shutter speed to capture any movement at all!Wink

I'm far from being religious, but I can't help seeing a nativity scene. In the centre is the Angel of the Lord, the 3 wise men are on the right (one looks like a king with a crown), and the main characters are on the left, with the ducks playing the part of the animals.
I think I'll retire to my hospital bed nowSmileSmileSmile!

A well 'grabbed' lead image, Trev and an equally excellent version.

Looks like the ducks think the dancing water is just for them. Lovely images.
