    Weekly Challenge June 24 - 30: Water

    "Water" - (TwistedThrottle)'s Choice

    Water: plain, colored, liquid, solid, running, still, etc.. Let's see how creative you can be! Color, B&W, HDR...anything goes!

    DO NOT SHOOT OR POST IMAGES UNTIL WEDNESDAY June 24
    This early announcement of the topic is to give a little think time, before the challenge begins. Photos must be taken and submitted between 00:00 UTC of the start date and 23:59 UTC of the end date.




    The Rules

    1. Photos must be captured with a Nikon and appear in the thread with EXIF info in order to be considered for the challenge. If the forum EXIF viewer does not show for any reason, listing the camera and capture date/time below the photo is acceptable. Listing exposure info, lens & focal length is encouraged so others can learn.

    2. Any photo submitted for a weekly challenge must be taken during the dates specified in the challenge thread.

    3. Only one photo entry per member for each week, unless otherwise noted.

    4. All regularly active members of Nikonites are allowed to participate, including moderators and administrators.

    Voting

    During the submission & like periods, please click the Thanks/Like button to vote for your favorite images. You can vote for as many as you want! At the end of the week, you will have the opportunity to vote again for the top 3 photos for this challenge!

    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Photo Challenges, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited or straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the challenge subject.

    Weekly Challenge June 24 - 30: Water-water-collision.jpg

    Weekly Challenge June 24 - 30: Water-water-collision-exif.jpg

    This image was taken with my new SplashArt water droplet rig. There is a solenoid in the rig that times the interval between the dispense of 2 water droplets and the delay before it trips the shutter (and therefore the flash). Setting it up and tweaking it was a bit of a pain but when you finally got it right it worked like a champ. I mounted all of the components on a piece of 3/4" pine. I added food coloring (red for the top and blue for the bottom) to the water to add color and shot through a piece of blue acetate. I increased the viscosity of the water with xanthum gum, which improves the shape of the crown and column. It took about 30 tries to get this one shot. This thing is going to be a LOT of fun!

    Yes. You set the size of both droplets (individually) as well as the time interval between both drops. As the column from the first drop comes up, the second drop hits and "crowns" out. No two pictures will ever be the same. This one took about 30 tries.
