[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a cold abstract of a water splash that accidentally happened when I was playing with dripping water off a tap. I had applied a blue tint to the photo to make it look colder.

The lighting technique for this shot was not done properly but I love the unexpected shape of the splash, added by something on the ripples. Recently, I had actually tried to get this shape captured again with same setup with better lighting technique but to no avail. :)

Wonderful contribution to the theme Ramdan! Excellent stop action shot, really the coolest abstract work, I gotta try this! How do you keep water off the lens? I like it!

Hi Ramdan,
I tried something similar but it didn't turn out at all. This is a nice abstract shot. I like the lines created by the ripples and the splash of the water looks great. Very nice abstract work. Nice note as well.


Another splashing view which is rather monochromatic but the effect is stunning. Lovely control of depth and and focus making this very artistic in the frame.

TFS and have a wonderful week ahead.

Warmest regards,
