Challenge #19 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
Show us a COLOR image that says "Gray!" Show us lots and lots of gray. Multiple shades of gray is ideal, but make sure we can tell that it's a color image. Is your image gray enough? If a viewer doesn't say "Whoa, that's almost depressing it's so gray!" then it's not gray enough. Ideally, aim for 18% gray, but just make sure it doesn't look mostly black or mostly white (or mostly black and white). Be careful not to include too much color otherwise the viewer's eye is drawn to that color and the gray effect is diminished.

15th place
Amsterdam is a colorful city and I was looking forward to a sightseeing tour on a glass-topped boat. Then the rains started. This photo of church towers taken through the raindrops on the roof of the boat is the result.
