Rainy day landscapes
Lens: A28/2.8 Camera: K5 
Posted By: MSL, 11-17-2014, 07:22 AM

Ended up at Kenwood Hertiage house in London on a very rainy, grey blah day. Wrong place to be but needed an outing with the family after having been housebound for a number of days. The house itself has lot of interesting artwork and other collectibles but is the expansive grounds that make the site interesting. Not on this day, when the rain never let up.

Desperate to shoot something outdoors, I tried to find landscapes that made use of foreground color and also minimized capturing the sky as it was a uniform grey and prone to overexposing the images. Not sure how well I succeeded so any feedback welcome.

I think that is a nice series. Obviously we all know that when the light is not good, you can't make miracles. But in the end it came out a nice one.

Nice series, I actually like rainy days for the effect on the colours the greens in particular do really well in that light

I think you did well, given the situations. And Pentax is the perfect brand for such weather

Exactly given what you had to deal with you did well. Very green and lush. . I feel for ya we spent a lot of money for a Hotel room that has one of the Top 10 sunsets in the world and it just poured rain one night and the other night was overcast :-( I'll post some of those later .......
