    I had to with such dim light, focusing was a chore. I chose to prefocus on the dispenser lever which resulted in everything but the top two inches of thumb being in focus. Ran out of time and went with what I had.

    Nice concept and play with light, but the thumbnail is out of focus.

    Mmmm, interesting. I would have never thought.

    Nice concept - would prefer sharper focus on thumb. Water falling at an angle looks odd.

    Thanks FC.

Ysal - I usually overlook such simply accessible things to shoot. One thing I'm learning from Panachallenge members is that there is always a photo op nearby! I was just fortunate to remember to try this. It turned out better than I had hoped.

Qixil - I set my "tripod-ed" camera for the maximum DOF, which in such low light necessitated the 8 second exposure. I made sure to rest the bottom of the glass on the bottom of the dispenser opening and start dispensing the water about 2 seconds before my 10 second timer delay began exposure. Fortunately, it takes about 12 seconds to fill the glass, so I had plenty of time without overflowing the glass. It took about 10 tries to get it the way I wanted with my hand and glass positioned just right to get the lighting effect I liked most. So, the house plants got plenty to drink that evening!

    My #2 - but how did you manage that in 8 seconds? Love the tones and the colours and the play of light. But how!?

    Interesting find, I have one of these water dispensers but never thought to photograph it! Very original.
