Nothing easier than sticking a knife under the flow of water and snap with flash !!! Well it was NOT that easy to create an excellent image especially with water being such a reflective medium, now ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' irenem did a fantastic job in the last deja vu challenge.

I tried to re-create an image similar to Ashezz's ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/166/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_49999.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/166/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_49999.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' but different to Irene's and still make it interesting with a reasonable composition and hopefully score better than a 5.50 , LOL !! Wish me luck.
I had fun though, used 2 macro flashes to light the water patterns and I particularly wanted to see the water texures yet not catch too much highlights that could be a real distraction. Converted to B&W.

A definite improvement. Nice contrast of tones and textures between the splash and the background.
