lovely piece. i like where you divided the picture. makes a golden rectangle(golden mean). if not, it sure looks like it. i also like the thoughts the image brings to the mind: watching rain fall on a late afternoon, the smell of rain in the air as it approaches, very calming. nicely done

Lovely shot. It's so dark and yet calming at the same time, and the composition is nice and simple, with gorgeous colours :-)

perfect - I just love it, I don't why the split in it works, but it does!!! I don't think it would be as strong without it. Those beautiful circles where the rain drops ahve hit the surface....an instant fave from me!

It was a lovely experience, being there amongst that rain. I know it's probably not most peoples idea of fun, but sitting in the valley where I shot this, on a little bridge getting heavily rained on, was quite something.

I have had some amazing experiences while getting rather wet, it's like watching a secret world come out of hiding.

It's beautiful. You always get such great colors! Is this enhanced? Very good frame, it goes well with the style and I like the division.

It's kinda boring to fav all of your works but can't help it... :)

hehehe, well, I'm glad you like my pieces so much. :D

The colours indeed not naturally there. It was a very monochromatic image to start with, so I converted the image from colour to B&W, and then used the Selective Colour control in PS to seperately tone the neutral and white channels. :)

I was sitting on a bridge with sister when I took this, in the middle of a mountain range with the rain pouring down around us.

Not everyone's idea of fun I'm sure, but it was a moment of contentment. :nod:

I've seen it done before on here, and I've been looking for an excuse to try it for a while, so I thought I'd give it a go with this shot, as I feel it suits it.

Glad you like it. :P

Nice colours. And for me it has some a bit melancholic, but warm, calming feeling. It's a kind of photo which I could hang on the wall over my desk and look at it to relax.
