Good Day !

Back in my old files. An image taken last April during our vacation in Cuba.

Why the title ? You can elaborate the best plans , they are still subject to mother's nature , and external difficulties.

But on vacation, we take it easy , and we do take time to relax and enjoy every moment. The second day of our vacation was quite wet (^_^).

Technically: Taken from the new beach restaurant called Ranchon Santa Maria of our resort. If after the first shower , most of the people remained at the beach, the second one (here) washed away the vacationers. It was indeed pouring rain.

Here I darkened a bit the scene for more drama. Added a diffused glow. Resized , sharpened and titled.

Have a great weekend everybody.

PS. We had a great time on Martine's birthday dinner with our friends Jacques & Philippe .

Salut Robert ! J'aime bien cette photo, belle ambiance et la composition est très bien faite. Le parapluie est l'élément le plus important ! Bon, on s'imagine bien ce que ce couple s'en va faire, ces journées là sont faites pour ça ! :-)


Hi Robert,
Fine you had a great time with Jacques and Philippe! This posting is stunning my friend, you show you don't need good weather to make excellent pictures. I know how hard it can rain on Cuba! I almost can smell the scentt of the tropcal rain from this image. Excellent presentation too with the special frame which inspires me :-)
Take care my friend have a nice weekend!

Hello Robert

Beautiful composition, I adore the picture.
All the details from the rain to the umbrella are fantastic.
A beautiful composition and of very good taste.
Excellent presentation, with the special frame.


Trés bonne composition, l'ambiance est bien rendue!


Nice shot! Perfect frame, and composition.

Nice shot! Great treatment!

Bonjour Robert
J'aime beaucoup cette image avec l'ambiance crée par la pluie
et la composition générale de la photo. J'ai fais un atelier pour
essayer d'accentuer cette ambiance avec une conversion au
noir et blanc.

Salut Robert,
Faire voir et sentir la pluie, c'est réussi. L'atmosphère est bien captée, on essuierai l'écran. Le bandeau de titre noir ? Très large ... Mais j'ai compris que ça fait pari de ta signature.
Bonne journée,

nice walk in the rain Robert, i love the mood! TFS

Hello Robert!
Very good "moody" photo! (: I like the vivid red and purple colours in the "gray" weather.
Great compositiona nd framing as well!
Best wishes,

Je me demandais si c'était Cuba justement rien qu'à voir les végétaux et leur disposition. Ça je veux en faire une session de photo par une forte pluie de la sorte. Suffit que ce soit un jour où je ne travaille pas. Mais elles vont devenir froide les pluie. C'est une belle scene ici qui est bien vivate. Je crois que je discerne encore clairement que ce sont des palmes dans les mains de l'homme. Ce qui laisse prosager que la pluie va être vraiment longue et forte :)
