The “Problem” of Raindrops on the Lens
When I first came across with getting raindrops on my lens while taking pictures, I really did consider it a problem. When it happened, I thought to myself: “I have to wipe the lens, take another shot and hope for the best”. These days I’m much more open minded to this “problem” as I gradually realised that raindrops on the lens surface could potentially define the image instead of ruining it. So I thought I’d share some results here.
The first image at the top of the page is of The Shard. This is actually an interesting one as it sat in a folder for about a year or so before I took notice. Monochrome conversion actually brought out the raindrops and I thought this added emphasis made the image quite well.
“London Eye, Westminster Bridge, Traffic, Rain” – The second image below is of the London Eye with the drops combined with moving traffic in the foreground on Westminster Bridge.
“Water in the Eye” – And this image below is from Iceland, where the conditions were really wet again. However, the wet glass on my lens combined with the fog added a lot of atmosphere to the image.
