After a lovely dry spell here, the sky dumped on us and instead of grumbling about it I thought I’d embrace the weather and capture the beauty of the rain. The design left on this glass table made me think “black and white” so I took the shot with my D5000 set on the Monochrome (MC) setting. It has the look of a puzzle with each wet piece revealing the hatched design of the wicker table. I couldn’t resist a little post-processing so I posted a second photo with a simple Lightroom 3 Preset (B&W Creative – Look 3). Which one is better? Original, straight out of the camera (SOTC) or post-processed?
