I love water drops, and I have a large assortment of photos to prove it. But I never tire of capturing that brief moment when physics creates beauty, something we often don't see happening, because it is such a fast and fleeting event. So I plan on highlighting that beauty for a bit if everyone doesn't mind, with 2 new series on water.
This first set is on one of my favorite parts of a water drop, one that I usually don't capture, the splash created by the drop initially hitting the water. To accentuate this one tiny part of a whole sequence of moves, I used a very shallow dish with just a tiny amount of water in it. This would increase the splash, but decrease the following bounce back in the air the drop does. Each of this photos is of a different drop hitting, and changes in look just a bit. Each photo is also edited in a different style that I have used over the years. So its not just a look at the splash made by water drops, but also the styles I have used over the years.
This next photo is probably my favorite of this series, in both the edit as well as the photo itself. Far more of whats important is in focus, and I love all the little drops being flung out from the main bounce. The image is done in a lomo style, but a very light one. Lomo has, for almost a year now, been one of my favorite ways to add something different to an otherwise boring photo. I know many hate it, but I am still in love with it.
This is my first critique so it may not be as in depth as you might like.
When i first saw this photo I was listening to a somewhat moody song, and something about this photo really related to the song. The way the right half is dark and the left a perfect mix between gold, silver, and blue. I love the focus on the water drops, and the scratches really make the photo perfect. I have seen many water drop photos but this one really manages to some how be very different. It's moody in all the right ways.
