    ...and then the rains came.

    Out and about on the streets Sunday afternoon....when the rain came, what luck, for me......and I too got thoroughly wet...but a good wet.

    Any C+C, is welcome and desired.

    Wow...that's a whole lot of wet, all at once.

    Agreed..I also like #'s 3 & 4. Looks like warm rain, yet you can almost hear the
    profanity from the lady on the bike and the one running from it, simply for getting
    caught out in it...

    I'd say you need to crop out that horrible obstruction that fills up the right hand third of #4. It does nothing to enhance the image. After that I think you've got a pretty good street photo. At the moment it looks like you snapped a photo rather than created an image.

    Thanks for the input...I'll do over and post, was ambivalent and hoping someone may comment on it.

    r1 on # 4, tighter (crop) and lighter.

    Michael: That appears to be a warm rain, and the fact she is carrying her shirt as she runs makes me wonder if she is actually running from the rain, or to it.........

    A great set of pictures, Michael. #3 & #5 being my favourite. You have captured the mood very well.

    A very interesting image, particularly after the changes, Michael. It makes you wonder what she hoped to gain by taking the shirt off and carrying it? Looking at the buildings, it looks to me like the image is leaning to the left? If it were tilted to the right a bit she would be leaning more into the run which might look more realistic.

    With the intensity of rain that fell, anyone out, was destined to get wet, throughly, which she did, and later, I to, got wet. Maybe just a knee jerk reaction on taking the shirt off...or she was hoping to get photographed...

    Yes, without doubt tilted to the left, thanks for the observation Frank.
