VERY genious idea, because this particular Chinese character has meanings both upside down as well as right side up! I love how you used the square crop, and how the Chinese character in the background is centred perfectly. It's really nice that the drop is slighly off centre, not right in the middle, giving it a more artistic quality to the photo. The centred background and off-centre foreground give the photo more balance to it. I also LOVE the "whoosh" effect of the water just above the waterdrop! The black and white works perfectly fine for this photo, but this could also have been done in red or golden yellow, since those are the colours most commonly used when Chinese people display this character in their doors. But don't get me wrong, the photo is great the way it is. The only thing I might change is the fact that you can see the shadow of the tap and falling water inside the droplet itself. To me, it is a bit distracting; it is quite noticable against the plain white paper. I know this is unavoidable when taking photos like this using flash; however, since the shadow is on a white background it also makes it easy to edit out. Overall, this is an amazing photo! I can never get tired of photos like this, your entire series is wonderful!
This is so amazing! <3 I saw your tutorial that you did for photos like these, but how do you take that picture just at the right time like that? You can even see the rest of the water flowing and the focus is amazing. My camera doesn't like me trying to focus on reflective things. ;c
As an Asian, I find this piece of work amazing. Not only is the shot fantastic, but the character for "good luck" is there. In the background, it's actually upside down (which is how most Chinese shops usually display the character, in the hope that luck rains down on them), and lo and behold, the water droplets falling down contains "luck"! (facing the right way up now)
Du musst einfach mit Blitz und einer sehr kleinen Belichtungszeit arbeiten, dann wird da nichts unscharf ! Und ja hast du Ich freue mich auchs chon auf die Ferien, da kann ich mich wieder mehr auf Fotos konzentrieren
