Children were throwing big bunches of sand into the sea at the beach, resulting in nice splashes.
TECH-INFO: the sun was almost fully in front of me, so forming some great back light. Getting the right exposure settings was not that easy. It was balancing between freezing the water (very fast shutter speed), making sure to get the splash in focus (you don't know where the sands lands exactly into the water hence a higher aperture helps), avoiding too much blown out high lights and expose enough to get the details well lit of the splash.
Making this type of pictures is mostly lots of practicing using the trial and error method. I had fun shooting and at home I just had to choose the best ones. The single RAW image was converted into a HDR file and tone-mapped again. The purpose of that is too get better contrasts and more details. Afterwards in Photoshop I darkened the background and water. The splash got brighter and more contrast too. Enjoy!
