The water fountains in front of the Taj Mahal

The water fountains in front of the Taj Mahal in Agra
I have always been fascinated with trying to capture shots that are not so normal. I took a few photos of the Taj, but while everybody else was still trying to take more shots of the Taj, I turned around and tried to capture these shots of the droplets from the water fountain.

Tip: When trying to capture shots of moving water, you can either take it in a fluid motion, or try to capture each individual droplet. The camera control that helps in this is the Shutter speed. If you are trying to get the flow of a mountain stream, you can even set the camera on a tripod and take a long exposure shot where the water seems fluid. On the other hand, when trying to capture each individual droplet, you will need to make the shutter speed much faster, and compensate in both cases by varying the opening of the aperture.
