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!
