Yellow Umbrella by pwillyams Yellow Umbrella by pwillyams
Havana, Cuba, during a torrential downpour I went out with my camera under a plastic bag with the lens poking through a hole. I got soaked, of course, but it was worth it for shots like these.

Good photo but can be better :)

If you didn't cut the other "umbrella" on the other side ;)

That's what I think.

True.  Unfortunately there was a van with a distracting light between the edge of the umbrella and the point at which I cropped.  This was the decisive moment for the main subject, so even if I had picked this up at the time (when I really couldn't see, I had the camera in a plastic bag and was standing in the pouring rain) I couldn't have done much about it.  

So valid point, it's hard to get the perfect image

a great "in the rain" photo :worship: I am trying to do some rain shots too, and maybe I should do the same, put the camera under a plastic bag and then walk around.. or at least stay on a dry place and watch people walking around :D love this very much ^^

This is a classic - a moment you can breathe and feel. So far beyond the 'quirky moment' street, into, IMHO, the real thing.
And so cool to see someone not petrified of 3200ISO!
