Weekly Photography Challenge – Water


Water, water, everywhere. Your challenge this week it to photograph water in some way – it could be the liquid form or frozen in the form of ice. Pick flowing water or still water. Capture it frozen in time or with motion. The choice is yours.

Water droplet photography and refraction make for great images.

As it’s spring in many places now you might want to photograph the rain, or kids jumping in a puddle. Or raindrops on the window and some stunning bokeh. Or try some refraction in a water droplet. It’s time to get creative.

Oil and water and a bit of color make for a fun afternoon photography project. Image by Ramakant – see how to do this here.

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer, upload them to your favorite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.

You can also share your images in the dPS Facebook group as the challenge is posted there each week as well.
