    Default Summer evening rain

    Despite a forecast for no rain this week, it decided to persist down! Hooray (our farm desperately needed it). And this was the first sign it might happen. I noticed how beautiful the light was on my son's face as he looked out the window at some misty drizzle. That was going to be my photo of the day for my project 365, but I couldn't resist this one.

    ISO 1250, f/14@1/40 (24-70mm f/2.8L@35mm) - decided to risk that shutter speed & ISO while I leaned on the fence, rather than increase my aperture.

    Any CC welcome. And I will be getting rid of the power lines.

    Thats superb.

    I think cloning out the power lines would help but apart from that wow!

    Great capture, like someone has literally punched a hole in the rain clouds.

    Wow, thanks so much, I didn't expect all these positive replies. Grinning from ear to ear now.

    Honestly?

    Thats one of those 'I naild it' shots from a content POV.

    The jpg here is small and has some artifacts so its hard to tell quite how good it is on a technical level but if it was mine I would carefully clone out the power lines and print it at least A2, canvas or paper, then frame it.

    Thank you. It's pretty good, not crystal clear but that is a result of the shutter speed, but would still print fine at around A2. I will post the SOOC tomorrow. It looks very boring LOL. It was processed from a RAW in Lightroom, and hardly anything done in Photoshop (in fact I think I have each edit saved will post them too, and gladly listen to any ideas on how I could do better).
