I was sitting in my car, in the rain, thinking how to represent a typical Engish Saturday in November. The tree on the common in front of me, bereft of most of its leaves, through the rain-speckled windscreen seemed to sum that up.

Post-shot work was just cropping to remove excess grass and use of Levels.

nice take, but it really should be bigger so i can view the details better.

I can tell you put a lot of thought into this. Right now, the sheer number of drops is distracting overall. I can see where you are going, but am not sure this particular shot is the best expression of your vision.

I really like the mood in this shot. The raindrops and the green cast really capture the month for me. The shot is unusually small but I think that it is rather neat that way.

Good idea but the "out the window" view just doesn't work for me here.

LOL. This would have been my entry... too much flippin' rain to go out and grab a shot. This looks about right for Nov in the UK :-)... Not so sure I'd want this picture on my calendar for 30days though... Good luck!

You captured the gloomy miserable feel of an autumn day very well here, the image gave me chills and made me want to crawl under a blanket with a hot cup of cocoa, brrr... However I don´t think you will score well with this one since aesthetically it´s not great to look at but I gave it an 8 just for the "feel " of this image, hope you do well.
