Falling into pink

By Madoldie
This photograph was taken yesterday using a tri pod, flash and some lens extensions. I was trying to capture the droplets of water falling from the flowers cut from the garden. I used a spray bottle to apply the water.

No exposure issues here!

I suspect this will have taken time and effort to get: it was worth it. There's a whole world in that droplet.

Other compositions are possible, of course - but this works well, the droplet suspended, momentarily, between flower and ground.

Worth repeating, I'd say, so you can explore the various possibilities for different subjects, backgrounds and so on...

Thanks dudler, the exposure problem is something that I need to work at, need to put a bit more time into it, a bit more reading up. I think that also the problem is that I'm trying to do everything to fast and not thinking, maybe sometimes I need to step back and focus on what I'm trying to achieve.
All the best,

Just love the way you have caught the reflection in the droplet. Also your choice of a very narrow portrait for the image. No good flower image doesn't come from spray bottle.
Great job...

Definitely it's worth slowing down and getting it right, then slowly accelerating the process you go through.

Alter one variable at a time - and check the histogram after every shot for a while.

Yes, well done. For me, as others realise, technique is everything and very few imagescan stand with poor quality.
