Point of Entry

The plan was to capture the cherry as it makes it’s first contact with the water. When shot at the precise moment, the result is the water splashing out and making way for the cherry as it crashes in but the surrounding body of water around the cherry would be somewhat calm and still.

I took about 300 shots but I only kept like 12 shots which are somewhat acceptable. That’s a success rate of 4% there. Not too bad I guess?

  1. Excellent effort Vincent … that shows true dedication to ones craft of photography.
    I saw once similar shot with milk used instead of water, you might get more keepers as milk has different viscosity to water …

  2. Excellent photography there Vincent.
