Abstract Photography – Take 52 Week 28

I’m in love with this week’s image from Take 52 Challenge Anne Payne.  The theme for week 28 was water and although we had many many entries of beautiful water vistas it was this one of rain streaming down a windshield that captured me.  Sometimes we struggle so much as photographers with the technical settings, and how to take the picture just right that we forget that photography is truly a creative art form and there is beauty in everything that you create.

Anne demonstrates in this image that your subject doesn’t have to be clear  – it’s the feelings created that matter.

You are so right, we worry so much about getting it right that we sometimes miss the creative side of things. What a great interpretation of water, well done Anne and great Critique!
