    Hard rain

    Hey all,

    I got caught out in quite a rainstorm this morning and I got to get a chance to see if weather sealing means anything in the process. Which it seems to work quite well as my camera and I got soaked even though i had a huge umbrella. I have to say it was a little bit unsettling to see my camera get that wet.

    I like the first one Jason. B&W works really well for this subject. Probably shouldn't have amputated the guy's foot though.

    I like the 1st and 2nd shots, a lot. It's nice to see great photos taken in the rain. Thank you for sharing.

    Very nicely done Jason. I like your high key portrait quite a bit with #1 coming in a very close second. The third lacks the sense of movement that the others convey IMHO.

    Very nice series, I saw the aftermath of the flooding on the Weather Channel.

    Thanks everyone. I liked the first two the best as well.

    Greg, I wished i managed to zoom out a little to avoid amputation, but I was fumbling with my umbrella while trying to get the shot.

    John, where was there flooding? it was quite the downpour. I was completely soaked.

    Hi Jason,

    Yes #2 works well.

    In #1, I'd rotate to make it level (buildings vertical), although that would force an even tighter crop

    Cheers,

    Hi Jason, really like number two. Your pictures make me want to take rain pictures in a large city.

    Re: Hard rain

    Thanks again everyone. I had my camera added to my homeowners policy so now I feel more comfortable shooting in the rain. It covers stupidity and misfortune. Now I don't have to worry when I'm out shooting. It was well worth the money.

    Parts of NYC and NJ (Teterboro) were mentioned.

    Allen or "Lurchy" is fine

    Re: Hard rain

    love the first two, as for the last one i think it be a better impactif it was from his front.

    I too always wanted to do heavy rain shots but im not daring enough to put my 60D through that. Perhaps there is a weather coat thingy i can get or make.
