One of my favorites for this challenge for this image depicts a universal scene on hoe life goes on while the weather weighs down. Congratulations on your top ten finish.

I have always wanted to shoot a biker with an umbrella. A very surrealistic subject, IMO. The background is a bit too busy. I think that opening up the aperture would improve the image. 8

By far the most interesting shot so far - and quite enjoyable. Some good compositional choices, but somehow I wish there were a little more of a dynamic to it - it lacks something, though I couldn't say what.

Nice job catching the riders, however, in order to get them sharp, you probably had to pan the camera, inducing a bit of blur on the remaining of the pic, where there are lots of interest points, like the cool archway on the right.

OK, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that this is by JJ Beguin. My second guess is e301. Am I right?!?! If not, I apologize. It's a nice photo.

The composition is nice and I like the buildings along the street. Good choice of the B&W.

superb! a wonderful image

6: I find myself being drawn to look at the building in the background in this image. As they are slightly OOF I then get disappointed. I guess the cyclists dont seem to be doing enough interesting for me to hold on them. The lady in the white coat seems to be looking at you :)

Good picture (which could be even better IMHO if you would have pictured only one of the guys :o)

I certainly have a weakness for Europe... And I like this particular picture, fits the challenge perfectly. 9

Great shot!

This had such huge potential; it's a real shame about the blurriness of the background, probably caused by a slight panning action on the cyclists. But I guess you were constrained by the available light. ;-) Also, a touch oversharpened. But definitely a good rainy day shot.
