This photo was taken this afternoon while I waited for our youngest to get out of school... It is April 4th and we should be getting ready for our spring flowers to bloom.. BUT today as you can see we had a nice wet mix of snow/rain/sleet

So photo taken in the car as you can see the drips and drops on the windshield.. I liked the way the sleet/rain made the kids colorful jackets and umbrellas look... well and also the car across the street....

No major PP work here just the normal.. sharpen and the manual corrections..

Enjoy and I hope your today was sunnier and warmer then ours!!;)

I like the abstract look of this, the bright colors and shimmer of ice. Well done.

Excellent idea, and an exceptional, abstract looking result.

...we don't know Tricia and the weather is the same here. I like this picture which looks like an abstract painting. This is most original and I like those details, texture and colors a lot. Thanks,

Very beautiful abstraction, Tricia! This photo looks like a base paint where the color was applied with a spatula. I like the shimmer of the colors. Excellent work! Cheer! Annie

Nice capture. Love the effect the water does on the BG.
Snowing here too :-(.
Well seen

Hi Trishia
At least you have your camera to keep you busy =)
Nice shot, I love how sharp how you got the water running down the window. Creative and simple Nice!

Hi Tricia,
Hey neat shot , I like the blurry colors, very creative girl!
Here to the weather is nasty. I'm sure your aware of the storm warning on superior...its blowing 40knots here on our lake. getting snow! geez crazy!
Thanks for sharing the photo!

When i saw this picture, i miss the rain in our country (philippines). Indeed it's warmer here in the Middle East =)

you did great in this photo.

Hello Tricia.
Amazing composition captured. It looks like art. Wonderful effect and detalis.
Janek J-23

:-) lovely and colorful Tricia...
Fun thing is that you cannot exactly see what you are looking at... well.. a window and rain/water. But what's behind it.... ??
Nice to keep ones fantasy at work!

Nice entry!

Hi Tricia!
Very creative used wet glass as a filter!
Very well done!

Now I just LOVE this! Just like modern art! The sharpness is excellent, I love the bits of colors! Nice creative shot Tricia!

Hi Tricia.
Great colours and good combination.
Similar effects and abstract paint.You had a good idea.Congratulations and TFS.

It was Tricia, warm and sunny for us! Spring did seem a long time coming this year. Hope we don't get this rain...selfish I know! Nevertheless, you made the most of the day and this is a great post - all those blurred colours. Cool!

Hi Tricia,
WOW-- Great effect here. Well seen and presented. Nice ice look with bright colored background- VERY ABSTRACT. TFS Julie

I like this Tricia especially with the mention of the children. To me it looks like some sort of finger painting that kids have done. Lovely bright colours and a special effect created by the rain. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘City Park VII’

interesting composition here tricia :)
i like the mood and abstract feel to this
nice work :)

Good photo through your windshield, some of the drops do look like snow! Below freezing here at night here so ruining all the spring flowers that are out. Don

Tricia, yea, I heard from Vandana2923 about the cold you guys are facing there!! Very lovely photo and colors. Happy Easter.

Hi Tricia, enjoying this cold!!! Very nice texture captured. Beautiful abstract photo. TFS


Excellent colors, beautiful and original glass and water drops effect.



Tricia, this is really nice. Kinda abstract quality. Very strong vivid colors, very nicely focused. Really like this one alot Tricia...and so do alot of others by the points:) Very deserving. TFS Lyndon

This is great Tricia... Love the effect you have captured here..and with the colours of the blue, red and yellow, draws ones eye to the photo...it looks like a peice of artwork..so well done..

Actually I wish I could capture something as good... as at our camera club we are assigned a task, each of us, to produce some photos, we are given a title...mine was "In the rain" we have to do 10 photos, and put them on a board and present them to the club (scarry!)..hate getting up and talking in front of people..trouble is I havent been able to capture anything too exciting.. dont really want to take my camera out in the wet.. but I will keep trying...and its my turn soon!..

Thanks for sharing...

Good work..


Hi Tricia,

Toujours du plus bel effet, la pluie à travers une vitre. Ici, les couleurs sont très belles, j'aurais peut-être cadré plus panoramique. Belle image.


Hi Tricia !
I really like this one. The colours and the abstraction caused by the water on the windshield.
Very attractive result.

Well done.
Best regards, Daniel
