Nice early fall warm evening downpour.
My wife walking around with an umbrella.
Many adjustment layers but subtle changes.
I went from 200mm to 18mm during the exposure.
Taking a risk here with it being abstract, I know.

This one I like a lot. Very creatively and artistically done and visually very pleasing.

I actually really dig this shot. The comp. is perfect and editing rocks. Almost out of a bad ass movie. Nice work on this one.

I really like this shot because it bursts with energy and movement. You get the sense of someone walking against or toward the elements (rain and whatever the brightness is).
I like the colors too (whether intentional or not). To me, the flare works in conjunction with the shadows and forms in the pic.

Well, I guess you ended up doing just fine. Too bad you didn't make the front page with this - THAT would shake up the DPC train of thought! :D

Great shot! I had a similar one (zoomed during exposure) which I was too chicken to enter. It might be a bit too abstract for DPC. Good luck!

Very abstract feel...

Very interesting image with great texture and tonality. Not sure how it fits the challenge, though. What is it?

I like how the traces look like some type of fabric. I wonder if the hot spots are going to cost the picture some points during voting. It is a nice departure from the other pictures.

very cool effect. I just wish the bright white spot wasn't so ... bright and white. ;>þ

Very interesting. Looks almost like an abstract painting. I like it.

I can't really tell what I'm looking at.

I like this picture although, at first it was hard to make out what it was.

Funny. I was going to comment that there are certainly going to be unbelievers on the validity of this image, and there it is - the validation stamp. ;^) I finally have a lens that I can zoom while capturing an exposure and had a chance to play with it the other day. I recognized this in your image immediately.

I really like the choice you made to do this. Yes the yellow is quite bright, but it helps balance out the darker tones around the sides. The streaks at the bottom around the persons legs are wonderful. Did I mention that I like this? :D

Good luck in the challenge. It will be interesting to see where you end up.

It is a beautiful blur!

That's a good generic title. I like it better than "...". The picture is nice. It's the first one I'm voting on and that always makes it hard for me, but I like the zoom blur and I think the photo works as an abstract. 7 for now.

Brilliant shot! This takes the cake for me! I do love all the wonderful green leaves with water dropletts images, but this is unique, fun, fresh! I love it!! Excellent idea and phenomonally captured!! 8o)

Very abstract and "artsy" - rain isn't the first thing that comes to mind when looking at it, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 06:19:01 PM
is that a zoom blur? beautiful!! A rush of light in darkness substitutes for the rush of rain. Obscuration filters the visible world down to a lone figure who represents nothing so well as rain. 10

A nice "drugged out" effect - by zooming during shot?
