I've never taken a photo with the shadows of the raindrops all over the surfaces before SmileSmile
Mind you we had heavy rain and then bright light and a wonderful rainbow following on

I have uploaded these bottles before - taken in more gentle light

Thanks for looking.

Very pretty highlights and shadows.
I'm not sure if we need to see the window and frame. I scrolled down and it looks so pretty just the bottles and light.

Interesting conversation, I like this but don't feel that the window is actually necessary, I don't need explanation for something like this. I think the site divides between people who want answers and people who want questions. The shadows of raindrops are important and they work in their own right without context. But b&w is inspired.
Light on glass bottles, I suspect that Joline will find her way here...

A beautiful collection of bottles and their shadows - combined with the effects of sunshine and rain.
Fun to play with but not easy to photograph.

A tricky light but you have captured the glass, shadows and reflections very well, Helen.

An image which has been very well observed, composed and crafted, the monochrome processing adding to the appeal beautifully.

I can realise what you were aiming for with the shadows but think the former comment may be right

Ooo...well seen, the raindrops' shadows, Helen SmileSmile

Hmmm...just read what Chris said and I scrolled down and I agree with her. But you've got a point too with how it explains the drops. 'Cos when I scroll down and view the image as if new, those shadows look almost like snow! The shadows toward the bottom of the frame anyway.

But yeah...I like the version with the window cropped out, I must say.

Lopping off the tops of the bottles as well works for me, Helen. It's all about the light, reflections, refractions and the shadows. Even more 'magical potions' than the last GrinGrin
