It’s spring so that means I spend many hours walking about JD’s plants looking for something that catches my eye. I was photographing the leaves a plant when I looked across the driveway and noticed how the water from the sprinkler system spayed across the leaves of the plant that was backlit.
I tried various shutter speeds and finally settled on 1/90th of second. I thought that gave the best streaking effect.Enjoy.
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 300mm f/4, ISO 800, f/13 and 1/90th of a second.
Lightroom 3—Set black and white points, added clarity and mid-tone contrast and vignetting.
