The only comment I can make is why didn't you make it darker? It looks far more interesting that way. I assume you know this, and deliberatety made it light. It doesn't work for me this way - Maybe others will like it?

As it happens, that's the actual color.

No idea as to what it is but it does have a interesting pattern of water drops.

I like it, though it does make the reflection of the building more recognizable. Thanks to you and Chato.
