This is a good idea. I'll have to try that myself.
vz-nostalgia: You're welcome, Martin. Don't forget to send me royalty smile

Really great shot - I love this idea! Did you shoot through a window? Nice atmosphere, as your title suggests. smile
vz-nostalgia: You bet, Lesley. I shot it through the stairwell window in my office.
This works beautifully. Reminds me of our summer. (:o)
vz-nostalgia: Come over to Atlanta, Ms. Roz, we haven't seen a drop of rain for three straight months.
I agree interesting idea, and ditto Ros.
vz-nostalgia: In this case, I ditto my reply to Ms. Roz, Nig. smile

We didn't have TV when I was a kid.
One of our entertainments, on the rare occasion that it rained, was to pile into Dad's car and look out at the world through the rain-spotted windows.
Yup...pretty much like this, except that the only building in town that was multi-story was the 2-story pub.
vz-nostalgia: Well, I'm glad you picked your dad's car for entertainment as a kid, Ray, and not the 2-story pub. smile
Excellent. A beautiful painterly sort of image. Very clever composition.
vz-nostalgia: Delighted you enjoyed the picture, Chad.
i'm clapping
vz-nostalgia: smile, doc. When you add tapping to your clapping, I'll consider an anchore. smile

Watching rain on a window like when we were kids; very nice.
What I really like about the picture is the color beyond the rain on the window. The orange on the windows of the buildings looks like they are reflecting the sunset, the end of the rain. I would name it Sailors' delight.
Great photo.
vz-nostalgia: It was the end of the rain, Mike, and the windows did reflect the sublime sunset. I bet you read a lot of Arthur Conan Doyle, when you were a kid. smile

LOL at Roz that was the first thought that came into my head. Great shot.
vz-nostalgia: You're always welcome to Atlanta, Tracy. 90F and no rain this summer. We're almost dead. Still no rain.

Very nice almost gives me an impression of reflection on finished concrete. I would call it "reflection on concrete"...for the architects artists out there. And one more time, you see the unnoticed. Very nice.
vz-nostalgia: I'd never thought of concrete, but thank you for the kind words. That is what photographers supposed to do, to "see the unnoticed", Mina. That should be in their job description. smile

I've always felt that a rain spatterd window brought forth a certain melancholia. This picture confirms that for me. As usual, nice work, Viktor. If the architect gig ever fails, you can open up a gallery. smile
vz-nostalgia: Sure, why not. If the priesthood gig fails, come back to Atlanta, I'll hire you as my agent smile

VZ -
No time for me to reflect deeply on why I appreciate this image, I just do. It would not work at all in summer though, there is great value in the bare tree.
vz-nostalgia: Words do lie, Chris. Sometimes it's better just to reflect. I agree with the bare tree, though. Good thought.

Beautiful image VZ - I must admit I would never have thought of doing this but it works so well. Excellent. David.
vz-nostalgia: Delighted it works for you, Dave.
Wonderful shot with a great melancholy atmosphere. The tree almost looks like blood in the veins.
vz-nostalgia: The name of my website obliges me to post shots like this from time to time, Mike. smile

It looks like it's a sentimental journey for all of us, Viktor. There's nothing quite like being on the inside looking out on a scene like this.
vz-nostalgia: You and Doris Day, Ginnie:
"...Gonna set my heart at ease.
Gonna make a Sentimental Journey,
to renew old memories...." smile
I love this - it's like seeing the world through a veil of tears. It makes me feel very sad and nostalgic. A likey for me - I can't resist pictures taken through windows.
vz-nostalgia: That's so poetic, Ingrid, "a veil of tears". I love it.

I am captivated by the emotionality in the bare tree, the soft tones of the sky and the limbs against it, and the rain against the window. There is something about this picture speaks to my heart.
vz-nostalgia: It speaks to your heart, Ms. Kathryn, because it comes from my heart.

vz-nostalgia: Thanks for the Word of the Day, mal. Couldn't find it in any of the 9 dictionaries at my desk, though. My guess is it's a "malism". smile

earth tears
earth's children
constructs looming
faceted eyes glowing
is it the end
vz-nostalgia: I doubt it's the end, Pat. But teh image of looming faceted eyes, constructed by the earth's children will haunt me from now on. smile

An original way to get heavy grain in the picture smile

Great picture, great composition.
vz-nostalgia: Did you mean "heavy rain" in the picture, Louis? smile

I like this a lot! and it gives me so many ideas!
vz-nostalgia: Let me know, when you convert these ideas into the real photographs, Peet. I'd love to see them.
Rain rain go away come again another day. Love the effect, soft and sad.
vz-nostalgia: "soft and sad", well said, psychodudu.
It almost looks like the raindrops were specially placed for this shot. Amazing effect, really like this!
vz-nostalgia: Oh, Ms. Scarlet, I worked all day on the placement of these drops. smile
Really great shot- I love the effect!
vz-nostalgia: Welcome to Nostalgia, mooz.

Very nice.
vz-nostalgia: Very nice to hear from you, Ms. Aussie.
Simple and simultaneously charming! It is like watching "really" through the window in a day of rain!
vz-nostalgia: Well, that's exactly what I "really" did, JA, I was watching through the window in a day of rain! smile

Dr. A's not alone. This shot is more than words.
vz-nostalgia: It sure is, terry. It's a picture. smile

That's a great shot. It could have been taken here in Bergen, Norway. My town is well know because here is a lot of rain.
vz-nostalgia: Oh, and I've always thought Bergen is famous for being a hometown of Edvard Grieg. smile
