It's been pouring here in Washington, for three weeks....sigh, already missing summer. Just a quick image snapped outside on my street. I did have to clone out a worm that was struggling to survive. So I rescued that poor worm using a near-by leaf, and moved it to the soggy grass in my front yard, to then be eaten minutes later by a crow. I think I spent more time with that worm than actually taking any more images....glad that I got a image that I liked.

I am really surprised it scored this well. Thanks so much!!

The vignetting really works for this. Perfect little rain circles

Love it! Black and white is perfect to keep its strong simplicity. One of my ribbon choices.

Very nice. Simple, naturally gritty, and excellent composition and processing.

A little heavy on the vignetting. I like the offset of the feet to the center of the umbrella.

what saves this from cliche are the dynamics of the details, the solidity of the composition and the understated tones. (and this itself is an understatement). I feel that every detail in the water has been relished for what it is.

I like your choice of perspective and use of back and white. Nice work.

Really like your perspective here. Wish the umbrella were centered with the feet, but that is minor.
