I have decided to reshoot a rain image as I was not happy with the sock image.
It is a rainy day and I have shot an image from the car. This particular image to me is a little abstract and of an everyday scene. To me instead of looking at the rain and the traffic this makes me think of going home after work on a rainy day. When I am inside the car I am dry and warm and enjoying listening to the radio and when I arrive home my working day is done and I can enjoy the rest of the day. I hope that for others it will give the same emotions or perhaps for others being in the car in the rain is a stressful situation. Either way I found it aesthetically beautiful.
I have not seen any rain in while so I tried to come up with something indoors without also access to any studio lighting. So I have used the shower in my hotel room which has not the best of light but a good shower and a nicely coloured blue door. I have had to use a fairly high ISO but I wanted movement also and so needed to experiment with the shot to get the movement of the water and the drops without to much blur. At first I thought I could do a little panning but I did not like the results. Here is the shot I finally chose.
