I just love the muted but colorful tones on this shot taken through a wet bus window. Hope you like it too. Taken in Verona, Italy March 4, 2009

This reminded me of a Renoir painting, The Umbrellas

    So cool! Love the raindrop effect- really drives home the feeling of a rainshower- and the swirling colours of the umbies is pure magic!!

  • Many thanks Janene. I was thrilled with the result of this hurried shot.

    Different Al. But yet brings out the fun of being a kid again. Dancing in the rain comes to mind. Excellent.

  • Great perspective you have. Thanks.

    Brilliant capture! Excellent composition! The subdued colors are magnificent!
    This reminds me of a Quebec artist by the name of Theberge. He uses umbrellas and raindrops a lot in his images!

  • Thnaks Joanne for that information, and
