Street Lamp in the rain @ Chennai...

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 8 December 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

A view from our balcony onto the road beneath.
I liked the hooded street lamp and the "lit-up" rain drops.

I must say it looked better than what I have managed to capture and convey...

The force of the rain in the light of the street lamp, and your angle work really well here Sunder. Well observed.

I like the light/colour/mood here but I think I would be tempted to offset the lamp to one side or the other. For me it chops the picture in half. What do you think?

8 Dec 2010 10:32am

@grouser: Absolutely, I agree. In fact , I did just that - but the rain drops did not show up that well and I didnt want to risk getting my lenses wet again... Looks as if I must invest in some waterproof lens-gear soon. Thanks for the comment.

Super capture Sunder! From the looks of it the rain was intense indeed! Your framing gives the impression that the street lamp is surveying the area below....very "Big Brother". Well done! ;-)

I like the mood created by the subtle light. I bet the lighting wouldn't be that subtle on your balcony if it didn't have a hood on it. ;-) I can't tell you how many times I say to myself what you said above: "I must say it looked better than what I have managed to capture and convey."
