I really captured this in the rain. Before she ride with the bike, I saw her preparing the rain coat so I got an idea that she will keep moving. I opened my umbrella and look for better frame. I wish I had my 35mm in my camera but I had my 85mm.

the rain was enhanced in PP.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hey Louie! Another lovely b/w from you, I can almost feel the cold and damp from here :-) The shallow dof really works well here and helps isolate the subject, and make the bg appear to be farther off in the distance. Nice leading lines and use of thirds. I do see what some say about the vignette effect being dark and/or distracting, so maybe just watch that you don't get too fond of it.

Otherwise I honestly can't pick any holes in this. Good work, glad it finished so high, and keep up the great work!

Susan

this may be one of the more authentic rain shots...

In my opinion, this could have been much nicer without that big vignette covering so much of the interest in this scene.

I like this one - partially because it's obvious the subject is actually in the rain, and you feel that dampness - partially because it's simplicity is just beautiful.
