Fluid Motion



Everybody has done amazing water shots and I just couldn't figure out the buttons and doo-hickeys on my brand new camera (you read that right, folks, BRAND SPANKIN' NEW clicker!!! happy jigs all round!) anywhoo... I have yet to fine-tune my settings to make water look awesome-possum so I opted for another element.
FI-YAHHHH... (that's "fire" in a weird accent... don't tell me you don't know what I'm talking about). I used my Fireworks setting (sigh, I love that I have SETTINGS now) and holed myself in the bathroom all morning to get some crazy shots. Then I Boosted and Define/Sharpened it.

I love how you took a pic of FI-YAHHHH (giggle!) when everyone else is shooting water! This is very cool to look at! Happy new camera!

I love it! The motion is very fluid. And ironic that you chose the opposite of water :) Congrats on your new camera!
