Splashing through puddles

Splashing through puddles -

I've been wanting to get this picture for a very long time - the red shoes, the water splashing, the hint of a reflection in the puddle. I would have preferred natural light, and a puddle less muddy, but you can't have everything.

The red shoes did not stand out in the muddy water, so I desaturated the rest of the picture and tinted it blue. Also sharpened the picture, and increased contrast to give the splashing water that static edge.

The photograph is heavily edited, but the exhuberance is real. There is another photograph from the same series here .
