Benny Bishop's original photograph: http://www.jpgmag.com/photos/101027

When I saw Benny's original photograph, I began to wonder how it was done. So I found myself on the farm throwing rocks into a puddle and there I found it. I had my stepsister get a really huge rock and throw it into the puddle so I could get the same effect. My photograph turned out a little different than Benny's, but I couldn't copy it completely, I had to add a little of my own flair to it :)

Thanks for inspiring me Benny!

    I, too like yours better, I think I just like the low sepia tones to it, it gives it an almost unearthly look. I did look at his and it is awesome too but has a different look to it

    Wow, the scale is very deceiving, I thought I was looking at a lake, not a puddle, and was wondering what you threw, a cannonball? :)
