Snapped this on my phone as i was walking home today.
Summer is unfortunately over for me, I had an awesome time and cant wait for what the future holds.

This photo is inspired by Lana Del Rey's song "Summertime Sadness". I think it encapsulates the photo perfectly.

Only editing is the addition of a built in filter on an Apple iPhone and a slight crop.

Greetings from the Critique Club, Max!

This is so simple and so stunning and yet... some never see it. They/we pass right by. Well done!

I like the composition and the clarity/sharpness of the drops. I'm not as fond of the odd color you've chosen. But, I'm not sure it would be as good in BW. So... perhaps less saturation and a different hue?

Anyway, it got 8th place and a good score, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. :D

I wish you'd come enter again... I love your style.

Very well done composing the web vs. the still-in-focus background, and good tones.
