Oh, I love the forms of these umbrellas caught in black and white. I very much enjoy the center weighting with all the space surrounding. It seems to me a serious almost funereal shot...very calm and grounded.

@DULCIE: Thank you. Actually, this was a wedding. It was pouring down rain, the hardest I've seen in awhile and one of these men was photographing a bride and groom in a park. It was quite the ordeal, but made a great photo op for me :)

Beautifully captured; I love the way the umbrellas line up

Love the composition and the negative space. Nice job!

One of those beautiful studies that says so much from so little . . a true moment.
15 May 2011 7:26am
The though-provoking quote and the moody image are paired perfectly.

We have the same now - sunny days are over and it's raining.

When opening, my first reaction was "fantastic!"
I see Maria already wrote it!
It's a great great picture, in the composition, the light, the treatment and the fact it's opened to a lot of readings....
Have a good sunday!

The washed out surroundings are perfect for this image. Very austere and effective.

What does the overlap mean ? It is interesting to think the meaning.

@Hiro: What they were doing is huddling together because the person up front was taking photographs of a bride and groom in the rain, during a wedding photography session.
very nice :)

Endless rain!! What a wonderful expression and capture of it!!!

That clean gray background of fog and the great lighting make this look like a studio setup. You've made something quite beautiful of this rain we keep getting.

A double wing for a twin couple - oh just read your answer to Dulcie, a twin couple indeed, in the hidden frame, super opportunity for you photographer, and as we say in France "Mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux" (rainy marriage, happy marriage ;) Love the elegance of your image. Have a superb week (with sun, hopefully).

The black umbrellas against a grey wall of fog makes an excellent composition in your beautiful capture.
It´s so fantastic and I love it, Sharon. One of the best photos here on Am3 for a long time. Seeing a picture like this doesn´t make my day dark and dreary though, but that´s maybe something typical for us photographers. Thank´s for this one!

What an amazingly atmospheric (cinematic) shot you've managed to get out of this!!! Fabulous composition and rendering, as always! This is stirring lots of imaginations and emotions! Enjoy this very much!

But after every rain there will be sun. Sharon, that's a brilliant frame. Sad & hopeful at the same time. Minimal & so full of stories at the same time. Can't help but love it!
All the best & safe travels,
