Think of play in photography as a means of experimentation and interpretation. Who was it who said “I am always doing what I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it” (Pablo Picasso).
Here we are (Peter, Jeff and me) in sunny? south Wales at Penarth by the Pier waiting for the rain to stop.This shot was the first of many taken through a rain-soaked car windscreen at f8. For more abstract results like this try using the widest aperture you’re telephoto lens has with the auto focus turned off and manual focus to get an individual interpretation. Try playing instead of recording descriptive reality with your photography for a change!
The plea about a grey background seems to go largely unheeded judging by the number of likes registered without visiting the post. The point of looking at the picture against a grey background is that detail in the shadows is lost due to the glare of the white background in the normal view.
