A heavy shower, shot handheld, from the balcony of my house.

Highly underrated because of its subtle delivery. Voters want more punch but then they miss out with a beautiful simple image like this one. Nice work.

I really like this. It's vey interesting and draws you in. The grain is a nice enhancement too. It looks like it belongs.

So nice. It is one of the best situations that can show the rain.

I'm not sure how others are going to feel about this, since it doesn't really seem to be your standard DPC fair, but I love it - it's very abstract feeling, and it definitely meets the challenge. Good call going with b&w on this, and I like the out of focus feel - great work!

Very interesting subject! In my opinion, the high levels of grain here take out some of the shadows and light play that make this photo really cool. I like the composition quite a bit!
