i don't normally include flares in my shots, unless they are interesting! I found this most interesting. I have posted a few shots this week of my experiments with water and this has to be my favorite of all of them. It's amazing what a lens can do, that the human eye could never do.

Are you an artist or what?!
Well, I believe so, Linda B-)
This is simply the blend of photography and imagination, and you again succeeded in getting superb results!

Another wonderful shot from your recent series of pictures you took during the rain.
The mood is immense and I love the light and the colorful spots with various colors.
A surreal work with so wonderful light.

A marvelous job!

Best regards,

Linda, indeed this is an outstanding shot of your series of experiments with water. You managed to use these colorful flares in such a diagonal line crossing from under the leaves. A great effect with the water. A semi-abstract shot turned into a piece of art.
Great job.

As said Paras it's photography and imagination. I add, fine taste and knowledge of art, as it reminds an impressionist painting.
A memorable work.

I like it! Although it took me a while to figure out the image. Very creative presentation. Nice colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Linda, indeed a work of art,a beautiful piece.I can imagine this mounted and framed and hung on a wall!
The diagonal line of light with the colours;the silhouetted shapes of the leaves,and the texture of the rain, fabulous.
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.

The multiple colored flares really set the mood for this photo. Great abstract POV of this plant with the water droplets falling in different directions.
