Hello - I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Today I present you a miracle of nature that isn't visible to the naked eye.
Have you ever asked yourself how it looks like when a raindrop is falling on a stone or on the street?

I captured this moment for you.
It's amazing to see the sculptures that drops can built - but only for a split of a second ...

I'm so glad that I can hold it for longer in a shot ;-)

Thanks for your interest, enjoy your day.

Hi Sabine

Wow, what a wonderful moment you have frozen in time. The coronet showed up just
beautiful with amazingly sharp details and perfect lighting. Spot-on DOF and excellent
use of the fill-in flash.

Well done and TFS.
Take care and have a great weekend MF.

Hello Wishnu,
Exceptional capture with sharp details and very good clarity.
It looks like a crown with pearls. Great POV.

Hi my BEF Sabine,

Very original work and it is very interesting to take such well frozen movement with low speed shutter (1/200). The B&W works well in such kind fantastic captures.
TFS and have a nice WE MF!

Hello Sabine,
Yes, the human eye misses a lot but thanks to your fine camera work you have captured this splash of a drop into the water with fine timing to show a great coronal pattern that we would not see!
A great frozen capture, even though it is B&W!
Thanks and enjoy your weekend,

Hi Sabine,

Hi Sabine!

The wide dof and the fast shutter worked so well together in your shot, even if you had to use the flash to achieve this - that effects the bg a bit but that's not the subject here :)
The timing (choice of frame) is perfect here, when the veil of water is still together. Even reflections are pin sharp and add a lot to the image. The bw choice concentrates the attention to the essence of the moment. Hope I'll take an image like this once, it's an old desire of mine :) TFS!

Best regards,

  • Great

Hi Sabine,this is a wonderful shot,just a great photographer could make a pic like that.Just my greats compliments,this incredible and artistic composition no need other words ..fantastic!! Have a nice week,Luciano

Hallo Sabine!

Ich gratuliere dir von Herzen zu diesem aussergewöhnlichen Bild und freue mich, dass du dieser Art von Fotografie auf TN bringst. So fühle ich mich mit meinen speziellen Bildern weniger allein... Das Bild ist super, der Moment der Aufnahme ist sehr gut gewählt und ich bin überrascht, dass bereits 200/sec zu solchen Details führt. Ich finde auch, dass das Sujet für eine schwarz-weiss Aufnahme gut geeignet ist.

Liebe Sabine,
Mir gefallen Deine Experimente sehr und dieses Bild eines auf den Boden fallenden Wassertropfens ist echt ein Kunstwerk! Ich finde auch gut, dass Du das Bild S/W zeigst, es gibt der "Explosion" mehr Gewicht. Einfach schön!
Herzlich grüsst
