Mono Rain Drops
Lens: D FA 100 Camera: K20d 
Posted By: Gareth, 08-10-2011, 03:12 PM

2 different view points, both of rain drops that were on the back door. Processed so the background was darkened to add depth to the image.

Both with the K20d and the D FA 100mm with the Kenko 1.5x DG teleconvertor

Rain Drops 1

1/60 sec | f3.2 | ISO 400 | -0.7EV

Rain Drops 2

1/30 sec | f5.6 | ISO 400 | -0.7EV

These are genuinely cool - I much prefer the second one, but I don't know why. Clever and creative.

Thanks both

For me what I like is the way the limited DOF draws your eye in and the OOF rain drops make lovely bokeh
