A Drop in the Sink

By Mike_Long
seen the tap dripping into an overflowing bowl early one sunday morning, and thought I would try and snap it, this is about my third or fourth shot, no flash or extra lighting just the sun from the window, I think it looks quite good, what do you think?

The background is a bit distracting but considering the conditions its an excellent shot. A bit of post processing would have improved it a lot. i.e. cloning out the refleted drops and removing the "window frame" top left. Tony.

this is a kind of high speed photography, you have taken shot very nicely, love the sharpness too, it is better to see that you have taken the shot with natural lights,

although i agree that the proper technique of a shot is a relative fact, but this kind of photography is generally taken with the help of speed lights, a speed light is used to lit the background with the setting of low power may be 1/16 or 1/32, and for proper timing many person prefer a sound trigger to trigger that flash, and the camera is set to bulb mode in a dark room, many people also use another flash with color gel for creative effect and trigger it as a slave, a macro lens would give a better result,

although you have done very well with the minimum resource and using the natural light, but in this case also you should be careful about the background, you have taken the shot in front of an window, if you try to place the open sky at the background, this can give better result, and interesting reflection on the water,

i am also trying to capture high speed events, i have already made a sound trigger, but i do not have flash, so i have been waiting to purchase one, and i should say your image is quite good,

wish you best of luck for your future works...
