from the Posthumous Open Best of 2008. I took this shot in Paris, outside the Louvre.

Nice job there Donald!! The patterns form the raindrops splashing is very cool. Love the color tone.

A thought provoking capture. Nicely processed.

I feel like a peeping tom... but am loving every moment!

A bit of a puzzle: the sun is shining, but it appears to be raining - or are the concentric circles caused by the splashes from the bird bathing? He is wonderfully vigorous judging from the turbulence.

The raindrops and real-life splashes is interesting ... a lot more fun than pointless splashes contrived in a studio. The bird is a sympathetic character. It doesn't look like a natural watercourse, so I wonder a little about that (presumably it's storm water). But that's as far as it goes for me I'm afraid.

monotone - bird caught in the rain: I enjoy the contrasty & interlaced rain drop rings on the water surface. The bird is immersed, but it's darker tone or placement on the plane feels unresolved, it has a bit of a pasted on quality, & appears to be unnaturally isolated to some extent.

this feels very wet. this photo makes me want a towel.

I like the metallic/plasticized feel of this image.

Nikon D90 02/03/2009 09:38:59 PM
I like the tones, the exposure, the conversion. I think playing around with some cropping might be worth a try--might really make it dynamic.

Canon EOS-5D 02/02/2009 04:28:38 PM
Nice. This bird doesn't have much choice about whether to take a bath in this downpour but he is certainly making the best of it. I like the pattern of the circles. The stuff in the water adds to the feeling of turbulent chaos.


Canon EOS-20D 02/02/2009 12:57:30 PM
That's rather precious :-) Very well-seen, and it gives us something we can't really perceive with the naked eye. The composition is unfortunate, as far as placement of the bird goes; it's a lot more static than it has to be.

Canon EOS-40D 02/01/2009 12:50:44 PM
Good catch, and wonderful timing. I like the composition here, gives more of the story than if you had cropped closer.

Canon EOS-40D 02/01/2009 11:15:13 AM
What great circles as a backdrop to this wet little one! I wish I could see some of its eye...
