The theme for week two of the 52 photos was rain/water and although Cornwall had plenty of rain this week I didn't see any - having seen the devastation it has caused I'm glad I didn't. So I had to settle for playing with water inside. I had a white dish with water in it and poured some water from a jug into the dish whilst using the remote cable to fire the camera, then I used a small syringe to drop the water into the dish. The difficult part was focusing the lens on the point where the water was going to drop!! Anyway this is what I came up with.
Now if I want to be really picky these are not technically correct as the focus is soft but personally I really like it as to me it looks like a pearl on a bed of satin. As I have mentioned before I am doing a course in photoshop (beginners) and have to confess to enjoying it. So I had a very basic play with this image, this one is straight out of the camera nothing done to it.
This is the same image, with just a true white picked out.
and the same image again with auto levels applied to it
The affects fascinate me. Here is the second image I chose out of the ones I took.
The theme for week three is Moonlight - that is using the moon as the only source of light - but if this is not possible then an image of the moon will do. So true to form the moon is hiding behind clouds tonight!! Still we have a week.
