Pouring Water
Posted By: PaulF, 03-21-2008, 01:22 PM


Today I played with taking pictures of pouring water. A bit challenging, but great fun to splash with water while taking pictures :-).

My most successful shot is attached.
I substituted the background colour with white, which resulted in an almost black and white image. However, I like the blue colour in the water.

Taken with K10D and Pentax-DA 18-55mm AL F3.5-5.6, ISO 100 F8 1/60 Sec exposure.

Comments and critique welcome.

Well, crystal clear water and glass always get my vote, this is no exception! Nice shot!

I like the B&W look with a faint blue colour just in the right spot!
