Entry 4 of 18
   
 
The Lion in the Fountain       ©2020 aoc46
Panasonic DC-GX9       4th place, 118 points
1/2000s, f5.6, ISO 1600, ?, Shutter Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop, straighten. Darken background. adjust exposure and contrast. Resize, sharpen.       Extra Info: Our apartment building's garden includes two decorative fountains with spouts that bubble up about 3 inches, filling a dish that also serves as a birdbath. Photographing the spouts in burst mode, every frame would be completely different. It's hard not to see human, animal and other forms in the bubbles - and equally so to decide which one to submit.

    I've tried emailing you twice at your link but I'm not sure guidex is working. If you are getting the emails, just post a comment on one of my entries and I'll see what I can work out. Maybe post in your comments and then delete and it should get to your inbox that way.

    I've added two how to comment in outtakes as to how to get your photos to link to your forum posts, without havimg them only work for the moment and then disappear later.

    I thought I was looking at ice until I read the Extra Info. Love the lion! Now, I'm wondering what other interesting shapes you shot!

    Lovely shot - and I see the lion. The motion is so frozen that my initial idea was that it was an ice sculpture. Great stop action photography.

    Nicely spotted and very creative. The water has a life of its own. Great use of DOF to focus on the lion.

    Brilliant - although, to me, it looks more like a sea-horse.

    Great colours. It has the feel of ice.

    I though this was ice before I read the Extra Info. Interesting shape. I like the dark background and touches of blue. All told a unique, attractive, and interesting entry.

    Honestly, it doesn't look like liquid water! Very sharp and well shot.

    How fascinating! I see a horse's head. The short exposure freezes the water like an ice carving.

    Looks unreal, the semblance to a lion head is remarkable. Just don't tell me you made 300 shots to find this one. Technically very clean and sharp and well done.

    love this very much, it shows the air and water mix with the good old gravity. I can see the head shape so a good pick. maybe some more in outtakes. have you tried flash and this will freeze it more
