    It is funny that the photos in the thread are way better than the examples given by the writer of the article. Good going folks!

    That's a great shot, thanks for sharing. I don't see streaking on a window. Was it open?

    Judy it a fabulous shot with amazing bokeh. It looks like a flash shot, but the rain streaks appear like a long exposure. Which is it, and what lens was it?

    Thank you.

    "If you are shooting with an interchangeable lens camera, don’t change your lens in the rain."
    -from that article linked in the opening post.

    Epiphanic in proportion!

    Thank you Crdome. The lens used was the Carl Zeiss 80-200mm F4 Vario Sonnar, 1/125th sec. Being a manual lens, the f-stop wasn't recorded in the exif, but if I had to guess, I'd say probably f5.6. I agree, this lens does have pretty bokeh.

    No flash was used. It was taken from my front porch during one of those brief summer showers where the sun is still out while it's raining. The sunlight reflected off the raindrops as they fell.

  7. The window was open and rain was blowing in.
