We went to Paris. It rained. Fortunately not all the time though. We had periods of marvellous sun as well.

The Rue de Lyon as seen in the rain from our hotel balcony.

Many thanks indeed for all the interest and comments on the Père Lachaise set, and especially to Moira (mrswoolybill), Dave (WhiteRose1) and Ann (AnnChown) for their UA's.

Have a great Sunday, whether it be Silly or not.Wink

Wonderful. I suspect a teensy bit of desaturation in the main body of the image, the effect works.
I would get rid of two tiny intrusive details on the left, simply because they distract from the main story.

An image which is crammed backed with so many possible narratives. Which I must say I find to be an endearing quality in a photograph.

V2 cleaned up on the lhs after Moira's suggestion - thank youSmile
And yes, spot-on, I desaturated the main body just a teeny-weeny bit.

Moira does spot the details Malc, and it does make a nice difference. I hadn't noticed the two little studs of colour until they were pointed out.

Natural colour popping, and the wet road lifts the image well. I can see an 'Abbey Road' type crop from the middle as well.

I am certain you would have preferred the rain to be desaturated - by 100% - but it has served you up a treat photographically.
Composition and content shout "Paris in the Rain" to me - maybe it's the configuration of the junction that is typical, along with the bikes parked against the railings and the scooters parked everywhere. Excellent.

Two excellent wet weather images Malc, I like the limited colour palette. The natural selective colouring has certainly highlighted that colourful brolly as Trev has pointed out already

Thought it was a mono with colour popping at first Malc but see what you have done now - great effect very well suited to the scene.
