Gravity by ValentinaWhite Gravity by ValentinaWhite

 And then I looked up at the sun and I could see 
Oh, the way that gravity pulls on you and me,
And then I looked up at the sky and saw the sun, 
And the way that gravity pushes on everyone, 
On everyone.


"Gravity" by Coldplay


Gravity II: Gravity II by ValentinaWhite (missv10.deviantart.com/art/Gra… )


I finally made it!
Hard to believe even for me: this concept has been around quite a while and until now I couldn't really figure out how to make it happen. Turned out simpler than I thought.
I've always been fond of splash photography but lately I was very distracted by my "new" adapter ring for the reverse-lens technique and I could scarcely think about anything else. My bad.
This is basically what I had in camera, I just enhanced the colours in order to obtain a colder mood, so minimum use of photoshop. 


I strongly suggest to FULL-VIEW for more details!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-04-20
Gravity by ValentinaWhite is a beautiful depiction of water, conceptualized in a very creative way. The artist has a varied gallery exploring many aspects of nature and photo-graphical subjects and it's worth paying a visit to see more of her work! ( Suggested by salem-poe and Featured by Kaz-D )

I'm slightly put off by the mystery of those intricate details within the "umbrella hood." Did you have a frame before-hand?


Either way this is just too neat not to favorite! Thank you for sharing. : )

Thank you for your feedback and support :hug: I can take no credit about the craft, it is an old "bomboniera" - in Italian, I guess the right word for it in English would be "favor" - that I found around the house. I just really liked the idea of a reversed rain falling off from the umbrella :)

Wow! To have shot this straight onto camera is amazing!

Breath-taking shot I really do have to admit, and I like the colour enhancement.
The vibrant blue hues look really good together with the slight monochrome look.

Your gallery also has amazing work in it :)

Keep it up and have an epic day!
Gratz on the DD too :D

I'm glad you like the tones and the level of saturation - sometimes I think my obsession with water and the colour blue is somewhat weird, so I'm always happy to know whether someone shares it :)
