April's Shower of Photos: Day 5

I'm getting inspired by Jennifer and other April Shower participants to think more about what I want to achieve with a photo. Today I decided I wanted to try and capture the rain that had stopped a few minutes earlier. Some of my efforts might charitably have been described as "interesting"; a few were just plain pathetic. I liked this one, with the raindrop on the flower in the centre and the cloudy sky behind. Thank goodness for ImageWell, which allows me to cut out the messy bits round the edge (I could do it in iPhoto, but find ImageWell easier). Is that cheating?

I don't consider cropping cheating at all, even back in the old Dark Room days photographers cropped photos. They just used scissors then, right?

I like that last raindrop, just getting ready to fall. Great picture!
