After rain

It rained a bit also today, but not as much as yesterday when it was as if rain would be floating in air in little droplets. But now the rain has stopped, and it was colorful out there, sun occasionally peeking from between the clouds.

"Vine" is beautiful. Great work, Juha!

@Art: Thanks! As this was so colorful, I even pondered a bit about decreasing the saturation in post-processing, but left it as it was. Those were the colors, lucky combination of leaf color and evening sun hiding behind clouds.

I like also "Sun". Great light on the ground.
I notice in your exif data that you use almost always a little underexposition (-0.66, -1 EV). Is that intentional?

@Francesco: That habit was ingrained when I was using Canon Digital Ixus 400, my first digital camera. And I have always liked low-key photographs, even when shooting film.

But of course this depends on the situation. If it is sunny, I usually set EV -0.66 as the default, when it is heavily clouded I use EV 0 (if I remember to change it) and when there is snow I use anything between EV +0.66...+1.33 as the default.
