Splash in Blue

By PeterWoodham
Freezing water droplets was a challenge at my local village photography class and I enjoyed every second of the work, this is another variation on the same theme.

Nice idea, and as I expect you found, hard to capture effectively. This seems to be underexposed... I would expect these colours to be much more vibrant. Better to use an aperture of f/8 or so, for this instead of f/16, and if using your flash in auto ttl, I suggest dialling in a bit of positive exposure compensation on the flash. The red, green and blue should leap off the screen. Some can be recovered in processing, so I expect a mod will come along soon.

Other small points, the rose should be lower in the frame and all of it have clipped the top leaf here. Better to frame more loosely when you aren't sure exactly where the action is going to be. On the other hand, its easy to practice this at home. Good try, just a few tweaks.

Nick speaks, and a mod appears!

Nothing to add to Nicks feedback apart from the mod, - looked at least a full stop underexposed. I think you probably pushed up the saturation to try to recover the shot, as I had to de saturate a lot to get it right.

Check your histogram view on your LCD after a shot, you will jnow right away if the exposure is right.

The idea is very good indeed, the logo is not. It does look very under exposed resulting in a heavy blue/cyan cast. You put digital art so I suspect you have been playing with the colours here. I think that might have been a mistake. Would prefer the base image with correct colours and saturation, that would have been really good.
