    Nice colourful abstract Leon. I think you should have used a tripod though, the slow shutter speed has allowed motion blur to spoil the narrow field of focus. It would have been great to see the splashing raindrops sharply in focus but it’s an appealing image all the same.

  • Thanks for the tip Tony i will keep it in mind.
