Taken in Vadodara, formerly known as Baroda.
Vadodara is one of the largest cities in Gujarat and it's also known as its Cultural Capital.
It was the end of the monsoon and this was probably one of the last days of rain. In fact, it was the only real day of rain I got during three weeks I've stayed in Gujarat. But even with the rain I really enjoyed the city.

Registration is very beautiful with excellent exposure.

This is a beautiful take. The part with the waters coming out are looking simply awesome. I am not sure, if you could crop some part from the left, probably it would look better.

A creative and evocative picture. The subdued colors, the liquid blur, the contrast with the sharp droplets on the windows blend into a very delicate image. Plus taking advantage of adverse weather conditions is great. Thanks for sharing,

A very clever composition with the little iconic vehichles of India visible through the rain. Excellent exposure and colours.

Good that you were on the inside, taking from there a picture of the Monsoon, and not outside.
Nice composition, managed the colors mingle with water-drops on the glass.
Fine idea applied.

J'aime beaucoup l'effet distordant provoqué par l'eau sur la vitre qui semble tout déformer et tout enjoliver à la fois.

Shot taken through a glass window of moving vehicle on a rainy day using fairly slow shutter, this no doubt is a good picture and very innovative. The blurred offer a glimpse of the feeling of movement on a wet day and the splash of bright vivid color grabs attention while the sharp focus of water droplets make this works and the brain reads the detail. Despite the condition, it's a joyful, colourful and sensational in its simplicity. Well done

I like the streaked motion blur of the raindrops across the window. Good color of the yellow green motor taxis which stand out in the low light. Tfs!

A beautiful composition and a nice idea to take this picture through the window. I like the yellow touch made by the rickshaw, the global blur and the bright street. Nice atmosphere and excelent effect.

Isto é muito bonito e criativo work.TFS :)
patdeph (35744) 2012-04-18 1:43
great idea of what we can do during the monsoon.I love the drops on the glass, the contrast of the yellow rickshaws with the grey town, and the refections on the road.Very well done, and very well seen.Ecellent!

a superb capture of the mood of the rainy day, both on the outside and the inside. It gives us a good view into the diagonal street, with great depth and lovely colours and gathers evey ray of the uncertain light of this moment. Light management is masterful. I like very much the two kinds of view through the window, one next to the other. The patterns of the raindrops streaming down the glass are lovely as patterns and connect the inside with the outside. I also like very much the way the vivid colours of the vans stand out in this scenery. Well done and hank you!
All the best,

bellissima idea ancor meglio realizzata, molto bello l'effetto della messa a fuoco sulle goccie d'acqua, lasciando il resto sfuocato... bravisima.
Un caro saluto

Awesome composition! When I was growing up in the Philippines the end of the monsoon is always a relief with no more rain and flooding. Nicely captured with good pov. Very well done, tfs.

Intéressante ambiance aux couleurs du Brésil :).
Intéressante mise au point sur la vitre qui montre une rue mouillée par la pluie.
En ce moment la pluie n’arrête pas chez moi.

Fantaswtique effet avec l'eua qui ruiselle sur la vitre juste sur le jaune du véhiucle qui se défomre quelle compo et iamge superbe captage original avec effet.

I like this shot with stylish approach of windscreen focus. The yellow and green people movers are striking enough in this artistic framing.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day my friend.
bayno (18338) 2012-04-23 23:00
a photo very artistic in my opinion, great colors, yellow stands out in particular that of the average risks, I like the atmosphere that you have communicated even if rainy...have a good day...
UlfE (14148) 2012-04-25 11:11
An excellent photo of rainy day in Vadodara. The photo is very artistic and your timing was excellent with three tuk-tuks in passing by in an otherwise almost empty street. This makes the photo very attractive. TFS and have a nice evening!
wolf38 (29130) 2012-04-25 22:49
Hello Ana. This photo is a small and fine art. Well seen and presented.
brianmcc (5832) 2012-04-26 13:00
this is a great composition with the rain on the window outside, while you are kept from it inside the vehicle. the blurred scene beyond really emphasises the greyness of the rainy city. while the flashes of colour hint at the city life going on regardless.
axiotea (21647) 2012-04-27 19:35
I also enjoy the rain in India and in Goa, the monsoon will start beginning of June, until october/november.
i like that compo taken through the glass window with the rain on it. The vivid yellow tones of the rickshaws are an eye catcher!
Have a nice day
jemaflor (74370) 2012-05-02 4:25
Interesting idea with rain on the fg, good result and complement with yellow color and the view of the street.
SWEETFREEDOM (19970) 2012-05-15 0:05
nice picture throught this glass. it gives well the rainy weather outside. i like the bright yellow taxi on the streets.
kwekwekan (704) 2012-05-28 17:00
A superbly creative way to capture the monsoon rains. Excellent effect on the rickshaws.
jmdias (48503) 2012-06-21 3:09
cores bem brasileiras. gosto do contraste delas com o ambiente cinzento e gostei muito do uso da água e do vidro para fazer uma compo abstrata.
por aqui mais um dia frio, cinzento e chuvoso, temos pasado pelas piores chuvas de inverno dos últimos 10 anos..
CLODO (26634) 2012-07-07 1:12
A good way to show the rain: focus on the drops on a window and the blurred cityscape tells us in which country we are. Nice colored spots against the grey background.
Have a nice WE
mafegan (8622) 2012-08-15 5:08
The blurred glimpses of the yellow and green auto rickshaws between the raindrops is certainly effective. Very creative. Cheers, Marlene
