Making a big splash

With the temperature soaring to an almost impossibly hot 34°C today, I thought I would share a quick photo from the weekend, most of which was spent cooling off in or around the pool.

I was trying to catch a picture of Alex holding the step in the pool and practicing his kicking, but even with a 1/1300s exposure, because of the sunlight on the highly reflective splash, everything was coming out overexposed.
Knocking down the brightness digitally not only made the splash appear a little more defined, it also gave me a cool effect on the vegetation beyond the pool.

I quite like it. More detail here.
