Wow!! :blink: brill as ever :)

this one was a cheap shot they were moving very fast and i was caught off guard with the camera on manual focus, so the image isnt as sharp as desired.

got some of a high altitude plane as well, i was surprised at the 100% zoom picture i was expecting a little blur like with my Kodak but its actually quite well defined. just cropping them up.

I decided today to do a bit of close up stuff again, and was hunting round the shed when i found my old fish tank and some coloured glass stones :hmm: So the plan, drope stones into water in fish tank, have camera set at water level, capture result, Sounds good
So here is my set up
Posted Image

Flash above the water, with a white plate below to add bouns light, A white card to the rear of the tank, angled to catch a bit of the flash, hopfully to give a nice whit background.

Camera was tripod mounted and pre-focused on the drop zones, I made a few test drops from flash hight then held a pen in the water were the stones hit and focused on that. I switched to manual focus set the shutter speed to 160th at F10 set the the remote flash trigger and turned the shutter to remote trigger too. and off we go

The results

Well 150 shots later and these are about all the usable ones i have :wall:

Its very hard to time the shutter and the impact.. there is a slight delay in the remote trigger and its not the same every time. You also have to whip and splashes of the inside of the glass after every drop, as the stand out a mile as there no in focus.
Looking at the pictures, if i try it agian i may use a second flash to light the back ground. I also thing i would get a better hit rate if i dont remote trigger the shutter and do it manually.

That is very cool and I have not seen anything exactly like it.
When you spoke of the setup then said "The result"
I half expected the first stone would hit the water then the bottom of the glass tank and the result would be
a broken fish tank.
Glad it didn't turn out that way.

:rofl: That was my thought as i droped the 1st stone so what you dont see in the photos is sponge cloth laying in the bottom of the tank .

my fave's the first, i would have said cropping the images so the water level is not visible may make the images more appealing maybe? or using a selective color filter on your camera (if yours has one) to drown out any others that may be looming.

first time i've shot in RAW and got anything okay to use (i shot in .PEF last time and my program couldn't open it XD this time they are DNG) i converted them obviously, but i have to say the quality is MUCH better compared to the likes of JPEG, i might use it more often i can see what people mean about flexibility as well.

there are more just see how these three go down first :)

i NEED absolute honest critique on these images, i am looking to improve my photography skills so honesty and advice is MUCH appreciated. :thumbsup:

I like the first 2, not keen on the last

The 1st one theres an old saying "The devils in the detail" the dust in the binos lens stands out a mile give it a good kleen if your gonna go in close

The 2nd good exposure, well composed, good colour and background, For me spoiled by a lack of DOF needs more depth of field or if you have a program that suports it "Focus stacking"

Here a few from today

I replaced the white background with a black one here and used the second flash to give extra side lite
