    #38 - Water (congrats Erno James)

    On behalf of Claes(CLS) this is assignment 38: Water

    "Water can be used in many ways to create great photos - I've seen several great examples of this from many of you in the various threads in this forum. First I was thinking about giving you a few inspirational example shots, but then I changed my mind and thought it would be better to leave the interpretation of the subject fully up to each and every one of you. The only thing to keep in mind for this assignment is that in some way it should be water that makes the picture. Happy shooting!"

    "I've had a tough time narrowing down my favorite photos of this assignment to only five shots that I really like...and the nominees are (in no particular order):"

    Name: Dr Croubie
    Motivation: This is a really cool reflection shot. There's something about it that keeps messing with my brain.



    Name: erno james
    Motivation: This is a ridiculously beautiful sea landscape shot. I can almost hear the splashing waves.



    Name: HDNitehawk
    Motivation: This would "just" have been a good shot of the running dog if it wasn't for the water t(r)ail that makes it great.



    Name: Sheiky
    Motivation: I like the brightness and freshness of this photo along with the tight composition - simply a great swimming shot.



    Name: nvitalephotograhy
    Motivation: This spider's web is captured at the right time from the right angle, and the execution is spot on.





    • The poll will be open for 3 days!
    • Good luck!

    I'll just kick off with a few photos of the local triathlon from last week:

    Scuba Triathlon by Jan Paalman, on Flickr

    Triathlon is definitely my favorite sport to take photos off. Three different sports combined make for a great opportunity to photograph different subjects. Swimming definitely has the best part here. There's always something happening with the water. Plus it's quite cool to see how the water flows around faces etc. 100% views are really nice I think

    I agree with Sheiky that swimming is one of the best sports to take photos of, although I find it particularly challenging to get the right facial expression that I'm looking for. People pull all sorts of weird faces when they're taking a breath, and pro-level athletes often draw their breath so close to the water's surface that it's difficult to get much face in the picture at all.

    Anyway, this is my entry.

    Great topic and excellent entries so far. This is probably my favourite water shot, because of all the fantastic memories of the place. Taken in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia.

    Canon 1D3, 70-200 f/2.8 lens, 1/400 sec @ f/8, ISO 100

    Nice bird Joel, there's something really cool about that shot, one of those 'i like it but can't tell why' moments.

    Anyway, i've probably got a whole lot that I should process that would have water in, but for now i'm being lazy and putting in one from my time in NL.
    It's my only photo that i've ever come up with a title: "A reflection in water has no depth"



    (and yes, I put the watermark on it to stop people telling me "it's upside down")
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.
