passing storm

By jacomes
A thunderstorm passing over yesterday afternoon, seen through our window. V1 is B&W version. A bit of an experiment, focussing on the raindrops on the window.
V2 s a crop as suggested in comments.

Thanks to everyone for your comments and votes on the lost hat yesterday , as always much appreciated.

I prefer the mono but would crop out the lampstandards.

I like the B/W, it shows more detail and Kate has a point about the lamp posts. They are a distraction to the droplets. Great to keep trying new skills James, we have all had to become creative!

Thanks for your comments. I feel that possibly the colour reveals more of the view, the B&W concentrates on the raindrops. I left the lamposts in because I like the proportions on the image, V2 is a crop maintaining the proportions without the lamposts. It works Smile

Sounds like we're forecast weather like this in the next couple of days 😬 Works well focussing on the raindrops, with just the right amount of blur in what's beyond. Have to go for colour, and it works for me with or without the lamp-posts 😃👍
