My daughter being a great sport & tipping a bucket of water(warm!) over her head.(I might tell her its warm and use ice cold next time to get more of a 'shock' look! - jokeWink Any tips on this type of shot - I mean freezing action, water more specifically. I suppose I could have used a bit faster shutter speed (1/250 sec, f2.8, iso100) using Nikon 80-200 AFS @ 80mm. Although I had time to set shot up, once she decided to do it there was no stopping her, or getting her to wait while I messed about with camera settings.

u already described there was no controlling and you could not set the shot up.. but still a good attitude shown in posting it..
i myself am a bit new in photography.. but i will share my thoughts because i love to do it..

1. the picture is complete and i dont think any cropping is required.
2. the bucket has very bright and bold colors which distract from the subject.
3. she is clearly a bit cringing from it with all her innocence. this creates a subject for photograph. In that way there's no problem with it. I love the curtain of hair before her face. By face, she is cute and innocent, and that adds to the charm of 'childish folly.'
4. it has to be much clearer with droplets clearly defined. i feel you should try it in morning or evening sunlight. that way there would be light aplenty, yet mild.. that could be a dramatic portrait.. and you will have freedom to choose a finer aperture size with a fast shutter..

Best wishes.

I wish I had used a faster shutter speed, it was a bit overcast and late aswell - if she does it again or similar I will do, and I'm sure she will be up for any type of mayhem - so watch out! I quite like the contrast of the bright colour of the bucket though. Thanks for taking time to comment.Appreciated.
