Very imaginative take on the theme. I agree that perhaps a little more of the lemon would have worked but the drops are well captured. As said, photography is always a learning curve so its good to try things out.

Just enough in the frame to start suggesting a story with little enough in there to ask plenty of questions. I'd like to see a little more personally, but I really like this as an experimental take on the theme, and your technique is absolutely spot on - nice one!

Interesting shot. Fair play capturing mid cooking, I don't think anyone else has gone with something like this. Pushing the boundaries :)
Not sure what shutter speed you used, but it was evidently enough to capture the drops rather than creating a trail. :)
Thank you. I’m trying to push myself this year to be more creative. I find the balance between shutter and exposure a tricky one to balance. Practice makes better! Thank you for our kind words.

In my head, i am looking for more of the details in the hand / fingers and the pan the drops are falling into. But your photo leaves us in suspence which is also good
Yeah I can see that it’s just chopping off a tad too much isn’t it! Thank you for comment.

Well done for doing something a bit different ....I did wonder what you were making .....it looks a bit like pancakes :) I think a tiny bit more of the lemon in view would have been good but that doesn’t detract at all from the droplets, well captured.
It was Jam! Ohhh pancakes, maybe that could be next ha ha. Thank you for your comment.

Nice imaginative image Rox. Well captured.
Thank you
An interesting idea and well done for capturing the droplets
Thank you
Genuine kitchen action. ;)
Candid attempt ha ha

Hi Roxanne. On my screen it looks like hardly anything is in focus, which leaves me wondering what the subject is. If you're going for an out of focus blurry effect, then perhaps even more blur would be better? If you're squeezing a lemon, I think having the lemon a bit more prominent in the shot might have helped so the viewer can tell what the subject is.

Were you rushing to get the shot? I see from your posts above that a reshoot would have meant too much lemon! It's an image that as potential, esp if the drops were sharper, or the hand/lemon was more prominent in the frame. It's a good effort though!
Yeah it was a bit of a rush... but I’m still not completely confident with manual in speed situations like that. Thank you for you advice.

Whilst I would normally prefer more colour I think the b/w works well for the theme

Nice grimy industrial b/w shot. Could almost be a scene from an eighties pop video by a right on stadium rock band!

A bit grim, must be from the North, it's grim up North. I like it but as has been said, the boat could be just a little brighter.
