Rainy streets of London

Today’s picture comes once more from the dPS Photowalk in London last February. We had quite the rainy day, which was a bit of a bummer but offered some chances to take different kinds of pictures. Pics of winding streets offer good opportunities to use hdr techniques, enhancing the asphalt texture and the water reflections. The technique and settings I used to post-process this picture are very similar to the ones I used for this picture from Singapore. Maybe I should turn this into a theme series or something :-D

Look for the rain

Back in London for a few days, and enjoying the almost summery weather around here! Today’s picture was taken during a very hot spring day. I was just wandering around the city center when suddenly, out of no way, it started pouring over. As everybody ran for cover I managed to snap a few pictures, in a few minutes, as sudden as it started, rain was over and sun was shining again.

There isn’t much fancy technique going on here, just a quick shutter (1/125 s) to freeze the falling raindrops in the air, Almost no post processing besides some cropping and a tiny bit of sharpening. Hope you like it!
