Sunlight sparkles on the wet surface and yet shines through to the wooden table below. Can I capture that?

Translucence & Texture

Above is a bit of seaweed picked up off the beach. The table is clearly over exposed as are the crests of the seaweed surface, but the look and feel of the sea weed and the intense sun light is what I want to bring out.

After the Rain

Clouds lift and the bright light of day reveals rain that yet lingers on spring blossoms.

I knew what picture I wanted, so I had patiently waited for the climate to comply, and comply she did!

Spring blossoms by artificial light.

Water sprayed on by hand and LED panel shining through, but it just doesn't have the same feeling as the real thing.
