Deep Blue... by Isalovesphotography Deep Blue... by Isalovesphotography
And her sadness was as deep and as blue as the ocean...
AHHH, I finally did it! Oh yes, I wanted to try some drop photography since I saw the impressive drop works of :iconneaffka:.
And so, with her help, this genius tutorial: and much experimenting I got a few nice shots and I think this one is the best of them... :) I know there's overexpose in this image but as I said- I like it for a first try. :) It was quite hard with focus and aperture... Almost everything that could have been a fascinating shot got blurry... :D And I didn't had to edit the colors- I set the white balance on "electric light" and the whole picture got this wonderful blue :) It was just normal water, no color in it! ^,^

Do you see it? A young sad lady, an ocean and the sky, full of stars? :star: I love the slight bokeh in the background! *.*

I think this was such a magical shooting... I am definitely going to do something like this again. I know, it's a bit mainstream. Anyway. Why is it mainstream?- Because it's magical.

no? it's a water drop! i captured it dropping into water :)
OrientalArc Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I knew it is a water drop and you very timely shot it as it bounced and stretched upwards giving a feeling of one solid unit. I meant that your shot is amazing and so perfect that a fluid and very short lived thing is given an enduring existence...

I've seen a lot of water drop photography, but this stands out to me! The drop seems 'sad'... like a lonely figure. The colours also are quite sad, didn't know a drop of water could say so much. Lovely interaction of light here :)

thanks so much! this is what i like in this piece too. but i think the light isn't so perfect, some parts of the image are VERY overexposed :/
:tighthug: thank you so much for your nice words!
