Recipe for fun...just add water

By aligriffo
I took this a few months ago at Sheffield train station on a trip out with my very talented mentor and friend.

There is a sort of man-made wall of water outside and these two cheeky chappies were keeping themselves, and us, amused with their typical kiddy shenanigans.

I like their reflections and colours of the kids coats.

Thanks for looking and sorry about the cheesy title!

Having waited half an hour at that very spot one afternoon last September, for a couple of indifferent pictures, I can appreciate this greatly. The timing was perfect to capture the expression of the girl on the left , the vertical angle makes it look as though both girls are jumping off the ground. The colour is excellent, while the space to the left gives the children room to jump into, as it were. Charming, fun and very effective.

Wonderful! I know exactly where this was taken, I spent a very frustrating session there trying to get something similar last year. The angle of the surface is slightly concave, it minimises reflections. Damn frustrating. You did well!
Plus - pink against grey - perfect!

It's a wonderful pic Ali.....and unless you sneaked someone else along on the day out...thanks for the 'very talented mentor and friend' comment.
I won't be able to get through the door if my head swells anymore. Tongue have to have an eye for a pic in the first place. No-one can teach that. Smile
