Re: water splash - fail

This looks pretty good, but I think you got ghosting from the ambient light. The only way I can think to freeze the splash is to shoot in dim light and let the flash freeze the action. I shot this one during my film daze and turned out the dojo lights. Not perfect, but there was still some ambient light and I was having to shoot at something horrible like 1/60 or 1/125 sec:
