Weekly #719 - Caught in the Rain Competition

Competition Details
Closing Date: 30/05/2021
Judge: tyronet2000

We certainly get our share of rain but I'm sure that hasn't detered people from taking photographs. I'm looking for images taken during a period of rain and how people have reacted especially if caught in a sudden downpour. Images can be from your archive but must have been taken using Pentax equipment. winner will be expected to set and judge the next competition. Good Luck everyone

Not an easy competition to judge by any means but hope you agree with my choices.

Weekly competition #719 Caught in the Rain

Deluge on the dove by Perspicador. not sure where the deluge is. Maybe that strip of grey running down the hill. A little more information would have been helpful.

Not having a good day by MHOL190246. When I saw this image I burst out laughing and thought Bad Hair Day. Absolutely fills the brief. Great capture.

Carry on Regardles by Nigelk. Caught in the rain but with a Pentax and PPE it's not a problem for the photographer.

Rainbow's End by JAK. Right place, Right time, and Pentax camera. It's great when it all comes together.

Pentax User in the Rain by johnriley. An image of a child showing a great attitude to the weather, and enjoying herself regardless.

Wet, cold and fed up by davidwozhere. A good shot of this bird and I like that you have captured the raindrops on the edge of the feathers running down its back.

Laughing in the rain by davidtrout. A well spotted and taken image which fill the brief. At least they have found a dry spot to stand in so something to smile about. The choice of BW certainly enhances this image.

Miserable by Simonmac. A BW image which to me is very suitable for the subject. Can almost feel how misrable the main character is feeling.

Caught by Noelcmn. Certainly showing the rain but I can't help feeling could you have caught the cyclist from the front.

Chatting in the Rain by jofford. Both characters look like they have been in the rain for some time but nevertheless don't seem bothered by the inclement weather

1st Place Laughing in the rain by davidtrout.

2nd Place Miserable by Simonmac.

3rd Place Not having a good day by MHOL190246.

All gone to you now David
