Re: Strange water formation in long exposure

A 2 second exposure at f/32 and ISO 100 means that you've got an extremely bright scene.  As blown as the highlights in the flowing water are, the drop itself is less bright, which means it could have occurred quickly without the area of brightest lighting being visibly affected.  I'm going with a drop flew threw the air just as a leafy branch broke up the light for just a moment...or it's fake.  I doubt it's fake, so I'm going to have to go with a branch or some other object with a repeating, spaced pattern moved at just the right moment to create a strobe effect.  Shifting light on the forrest floor happens all the time.  In this case, it happened quickly enough to catch the drop but ended up being averaged out in the brightly lit area where it occurred.
