Yup. Rain's still exciting to us North Georgians. As long as we have drought, we'll happy dance at the sight of rain. This shot in particular is the one I was going for on Day 28 when I got the reflection shot instead.
I like the circles. I like the puddle. I like the hint of concrete in the foreground. I like the out of focus What the heck is that? reflection in the water. For me, this shot just works.
Post processing on this one included conversion to black & white in Adobe Camera Raw, noise reduction, sharpening, a curves adjustment and contrast boost, and the addition of the filter "Anvil" in Virtual Photographer. And my usual simple black border, too.
