This photo is AS IS….I took it through my daughter’s screen on her window. It was raining outside and I did not want to get my camera wet…I love this picture. Since this was taken I decided to brave the rain and actually was able to create Diamonds of Red Droplets. Oh how fun this was…
I do believe this photo is somehow one of a kind and very beautiful……

    I’m no professional but what settings did you use to take the photo? This is a very beautiful shot and I bet it looked amazing in person!! :)

  • Hi Melissa,
    I am by far a professional, I play around with the settings on my Canon PowerShot SX30 IS. This photo I set my exposure to AV, set my scene to cloudy for a more saturated effect, and a lot of patience

    P.S. i dont think the little drops would have the twinkle effect that they have if it was sharp tuned…I think it was meant to be like this XX
