Signs of rain, Manila, July 2010

Different storm, same wetness.



  1. I prefer this one: probably because of the background (not so obviously in the garden) and the good use of that pillar on the right, which is very nicely rendered. The previous one had a different, but valid, mood. This one seems a bit fresher and more ‘splashy’.

  2. Splashy and explosive. That little explosion towards the top left is perfectly timed. Given the upward movement in that splash and how much of the whole it takes up in my eye, it works well at balancing all the downward lines in this.

  3. looks like a water tank on the right. The explosion mentioned by akikana is a real highlight.

  4. I very much like this. Perfect timing and a good use of compositional components.

  5. Well capture splashes which hints at those heavy drops of rain that come in hot storms.

  6. I prefer the first one, though I do like the way the raindrops show up here, and especially the the “splash’. The tree trunk in the back is interesting, too.

  7. This one works much better for me – the simple structure communicates wet directly. The pillar at the right balances the composition and the background doesn’t distract at all. The leaves are also nicely framed, not all complete, but enough to tell the story.
