Photo Challenge: Rain

January 22, 2018 10:05 2 comments

Theme: Rain

Rain stirs a contrast of opinions between people. Love it or hate it, adding rain to a scene takes some exceptional photos. It’s easy to take a bright and clear photo when the skies are clear or the sun is shining. However, it’s more challenging to use rainy showers to your advantage while still trying to capture the essence of your subject. Show us what you got, capture special rainy moments through your lens to enter our Rain Photo Challenge!

"Good action photo caught in a summer rain shower. There is plenty going on in this photo people and traffic waiting at a zebra crossing, umbrellas and rain wear. The photographer has caught the moment well here." – Norman

"I find it amazing how much the ‘rain’ element is felt here, despite the image being black and white. This photo tells a story." - Alissa

"This photo of the child dressed in brightly coloured clothes who is ready to play in the wet, which is really nice. Having the background blur and the framing is really well done that the child stands out in the picture.” - Norman
