Your Photo: Our Critique

Michael Priest took this image with a Nikon D2Xs with an exposure of 1 sec at f/8, ISO 100. A lot of thought and planning went into this image. Using trial and error and timing of the drops Michael was able to improve his keeper rate. He used multiple flashes with gels to bring out different colors in the water. I really like this shot, It’s different and well thought out. With all of the thought put into this, go the extra step to minimize the specular highlights reflected in the front section

With all of the thought put into this, go the extra step to minimize the specular highlights reflected in the front section of the splash. The other tips of the splash have wonderful reflective color. Overall this is a wonderful photo.
