All wet is right! It was pouring in Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, LA when I spent a couple of days there in March 2019. I thought I might be able to wait it out under a tree since I knew they were passing showers only. I took this shot of the boardwalk with the rain coming down. The Lumix G9 is weather sealed and had no problem. I was wearing GoreTex so I was ok, too, but enough was enough and eventually I dashed back to the Visitors’ Center until it passed.
I have processed this in many different ways and this is my darker version - I think it fits the rainy situation better than having it be as bright as it actually was during the downpour. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Is this a composite: No
Lumix G Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 @ 12mm (24mm equiv.)
f/7.1 | 1/30 sec. | ISO 200
Lr processed to crop off some distracting sky, manage highlights, shadows, color channel & overall clarity and texture - those I reduced in the foliage with a couple of graduated filters. Used the local adjustment brush to highlight the walkway and to reduce exposure in the upper areas where the trees get thin. Ps to remove a distraction and to add a curves layer for some mid-tones boost.
