Barcelona

We had a fabulous time in Barcelona-it is a perfect place for a photoshoot, so many interesting nooks and crannies, so over the next week or so I'll upload some of my favourite photos, staring with this one. I used a slow shutter speed because I wanted to try to capture the rain (we had great weather, except on one morning when it rained with a vengance). However, it gave me the opportunity to play around with camera settings, so it wasn't all bad! I love this photo for a number of reasons-the subject, the specks of rain, the graininess, the blue umbrella. Although, now when looking at it I think I should crop out some of the foreground..

Ooh I love Barcelona - so I can't wait to see all your photos. Love how you have captured the rain drops in this one - well done.

this is one of my favorites of yours. the blue umbrella as a shot of color is perfect, but you are right, the red in the foreground can be distracting. when you cut it across where the right-most corner of the red is, it leaves just enough to balance the letters above the door, but if you completely remove it, the photo is strengthened... in my very amateur opinion. the raindrops and dark alley...i love this photo. :)
