Splash of Spring by Sarah-BK Splash of Spring by Sarah-BK
Thoughts
Strawberries, flowers and signs of movement and life - these all signify that nature has once again welcomed the sun and winter is finally gone :sun: Also, flowers, fruit and water all give that refreshing feeling, which is why I incorporated all three into the photograph (:

I was inspired to try out a splash photo from a photographer I came across some weeks ago, *bellalleb-photo :love: I had to retry this photo on a second day since the very first time I tried it the sky wasn't completely clear and I was lacking the strong sunlight I needed for such a shot. But on the whole I'm pretty happy with it - I love experimenting new kinds of photography :heart: The more I move into the world of manual, the more in control of my photos I feel (:

If you look closely, you can see little pieces of strawberry from missing the glass a dozen times and hitting it against the edge! :P In all fairness, the strawberry was as big as the glass!

I really love how effortless and fluid this looks - the water seems almost suspended in air. The colors are very simplistic, yet the background keeps it from being a two-color photograph. I really admire the eye that was required to get this specific shot.

The only comment I have to say (and this does not take away from the piece, but is just a personal preference) is that I think I would have liked the piece even more if the brightness on the flowers and strawberries in the foreground was a little lower; I feel it would have made the glass and water stand out as a focal point a bit more. Other than that, however, I really have nothing to say about this except that it's fantastic!

Well, there is making sure you get the strawberry in the middle of the glass and timing the shutter release with the water splash ;P
