    Playing with my 50mm 1.8 on a rainy day. I saw rain dripping from a roof into a puddle making big splashes. Thought it would be fun to try and capture it.

    The focus seems off in most of them

    I really like the third one. I don't have an technical comments to add, just that it really jumps. I can almost hear the rain :)

    Thanks for the comments :)

    thanks

    When I was reviewing my shots I noticed the reflection in the first shot, stopped suddenly. To me it gave it a ying-yang look to it so I tried to emphasize that look by cropping it super tight, square and tilted. Maybe it works maybe it doesn't. I like to experiment. Thanks for your comments.

    I had to use manual focus, as AF was totally impossible. So I had to anticipate where the drops would fall, and focus there. Coupled with the shallow DOF from 1.8, made it pretty hard. Still I'm happy with the results, even though improvements can be made. I'm actually waiting for the next rain so I can try again :)

    Thanks :D
