Drip, drip, drip ... the sound of our blocked gutters! This is a very much prettier way of showing what the weather's like.

It's a lovely clear picture, and look at those raindrops popping up again before they finally land.

Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Ellie. Just forcing myself not to give in to the weather. I was very surprised at the results....I think I am developing a new genre of photography...`shoot and hope`. lol! (:o)
Excellent capture of those droplets. The clarity is wonderful.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you! I was lucky with these. (:o)
This looks a lot like those computer-graphics-generated test pictures they make to show off HDTV or as a term project at MIT.

Energetic shot. Very good.
Rosalyn Sears: Thanks. Have to say, I was surprised with the results. (:o)

I can actually hear the rain and feel the moisture in the air .Excellent shot. I especially like the green coloration at the bottom. Makes the shot a bit more lively...
Rosalyn Sears: So could I feel the moisture...the umbrella only covered my head and the camera and I was getting pretty soggy. lol! Very pleased you like the results. (:o)

Such a beautiful image, Rosalyn.
Highlighting the submerged leaf is a masterful touch.
Rosalyn Sears: I have to confess that the leave drew my attention after I had taken the photograph. I was really pleased to see it there, though. Glad you like this one. (:o)

I love the effect of the raindrops ( I think ) in the water ... And the green color of the leaf catches our look. Very nice !!! Ann
Rosalyn Sears: Yes, rain........and lots of it! Glad you like it. (:o)
What a great shot! I could not get one like this if I tried. None of my water shots turn out like I want.
Rosalyn Sears: It`s just a question of luck with this, Mary. I had no idea what the results would be. I`m glad you like it, though. (:o)

Smashing and brilliant, Roz! The green adds a special touch.
Rosalyn Sears: Oh you are kind, Ginnie. You can understand why I love my little camera - sometimes it just really surprises me with the results. (:o)
This is a lovely picture Ros. It just sparkles.
Rosalyn Sears: Thanks, Bill. It certainly looks a lot less dull than it looked to the naked eye. (:o)

planet Roz again! abstractastic! mal
Rosalyn Sears: lol! You sound like my husband....he`s always telling me that I live on another planet (or did he say, he would LIKE me to live on another planet?) lol! (:o)
I think you've excelled yourself with this one. I love the ripples, the interference patterns, the bubbles, the colours, the whole thing really.
Rosalyn Sears: Full credit to the camera on this one. It just seems to cope with whatever I throw its way. Glad you like it. (:o)

The distortion of the leaf makes this really lovely, though the water alone is quite interesting.
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you, Jewlya. I`m glad you like this. (:o)

OOO this is nice! I love the detail and color here!
Rosalyn Sears: lol! I am so pleased you like this enough to `OOO` over it. (:o)
Absolutely terrific! I took one similar ten years ago, and it is still selling well for me now, so get this mounted and framed- you could be sitting on a small fortune- it's good enough!
Rosalyn Sears: David, that is a wonderful compliment! I have not tried selling any of my photographs, and I have only ever had two enlarged and given to family as gifts. (:o)

this actually makes me like rain! Beautiful
Rosalyn Sears: lol! I know what you mean - it made me see it in a different light. (:o)
Another pretty composition. This is a Likey for me! wink
Rosalyn Sears: Thank you for the compliment, Jose, and for being so kind as to look at the archive. (:o)
