Skateboarding Through Water

    Newer Older

    Skateboarding home, I see a big puddle coming up. Deep enough to make a cool effect, and just not too deep to submerge my skateboard. I grab my camera out of my pocket and speed up. I pre-focus the camera on my skateboard, and rush into the puddle, make this 1 photo, and im out of the puddle again. The water was made bluer as you can see in below comments.

    I added english translation to the tutorial post below of how I made this image in Photoshop, as this was only in Dutch first :)

      Thanks Tubes,
      I dont see it in the link you posted, maybe they have already removed it. Usually they should link back to flickr, not very nice of them if they dont. But yeah, ive found more of my photos in use online by googling my name, and most of them dont link back.

      mclaineisabella, it was 10cm deep, but not a long puddle, so it was in and out quickly :)
