I love the movement of the water. I like that it's B&W. Because of the movement it lacks sharpness.

Thanks Mark. Focus was locked on Luke's face, rather than on freezing the motion of the water dripping from his head. I didn't have any strobes on hand and limited light inside his boxing gym would have meant pushing the ISO too high and risking a lot of noise, to shoot at a higher shutter. As a customer, Luke enjoys getting his images printed in larger sizes (A1 and bigger), which was always a deciding factor when picking settings for images inside his gym. Cheers for the feedback, it's always appreciated.
