Playing in the Rain by Photosbykev Playing in the Rain by Photosbykev
rather than give up because the weather was absolutely pants this moring I decided to play.

a 1/10second exposure on these Mandarin Ducks/Drakes gave some impression of the rain bucketing down. Full frame image taken with a Canon 600mm prime lens on a !D MkII N camera. Thankfully both are fully weatherproofed :)

Those are all drakes - as I suspect you know very well, Kev. They must've been keeping very still for you :D

I like how you've captured the rain mid-drop, and the clarity of the ducks. The few bunched together and the lone one facing away make it a nice composition too. Also like the different levels of alertness among the ducks.

"the weather was absolutely pants", eh? Good thing that claim was illustrated; otherwise I wouldn't have known what it meant, although I would have guessed it wasn't good.

Very nice shot of one of my favorite duck species. I really like the effect the slow shutter speed had on the rain, too. But, the tilt bothers me. I'm assuming this pond wasn't actually running downhill to the right. :)

I seem to be a "human level". I notice these things more than anyone I know. Probably the result of having a bubble for a brain. :lol:

Well, I've been known to miss it in my own shots, at times, too. I guess we get too focused on the cool stuff and forget about the not-so-cool stuff for a moment.
