Challenge: Weather III (DPL4 WK5) (Standard Editing)
Collection: Nature and Landscape
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Date: Jul 30, 2018
Aperture: f/16
ISO: 25600
Shutter: 1/125s
Date Uploaded: Jul 31, 2018

shot during a rain storm with the ISO deliberately dialed up to the highest level, in order to introduce noise, that could then become grain/grunge in post-processing to b&w - this high ISO technique can lend the image the textural quality of a bromoil print - that, coupled with the fast shutter capture of a torrential downpour gives this shot a visceral look of "weather" that appeals to me.

I posted another image on this site back in 2010 that used the same high ISO technique, for reference:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1177/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_858883.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1177/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_858883.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
