Cloudy Days

I love shooting on cloudy days. The snow was falling after school, and I got let out about 15 minutes early. While I waited for my carpool to get released, what better thing to do than take pictures? Though it was snowing pretty thickly, it wasn't all that cold. This resulted in a lot of water on my car from the melted snow. With the lovely cloudy light that is so diffused, yet usually almost as bright as sunlight, I took this nice macro shot.

The water droplets look nice, and the one I wanted is clearly in focus. The reflection of the other car in the parking lot is (hopefully) a nice secondary subject, but one that isn't too distracting, and I'm loving how the background just fades out to white.

  1. You set the focus right. Nice one. Some of my shot similar like this didnt focus well. :(

    Maybe if you can give us some detail like apperture and shutter speed, it will give us nice infos for learning... :)
