Challenge: Street photography people with hats (Standard Editing)

Camera: Canon EOS-70D
Lens: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

Many thanks to everyone and special bling to all the commenters.
Btw, I put the camera in a Ziploc plastic bag and cut out the tiny lens opening of the 40mm pancake lens.
The cheapest way to shoot in heavy rain and protect the camera. When the glass is wet on the 40mm there is no noticeable difference in performance.

Congratulations on the Blue, Georges. This is as much of a treat to look at as ever, though I have now gained increased appreciation of the "eyes" on the scooters. :)

gorgeous capture, as if the camera person were merging with the rain and blow. at least I feel as if I were moving right along with it. (and nice of your to share your m.o.)

Fantastic image, Georges. Such great energy and movement captured. Also, nice processing -- I can help be think I would have pushed the sharpening/saturation too far. Thanks for the lesson.

Great image Georges! I can't believe that umbrella is holding out, must be typhoon-proof. Congrats on the well deserved blue!

Superb image, a great moment of street photography. The scene is dynamic and radiates in color!
I can't imagine how (possibly) imposing this would be with 21_N.gif jagar's or 31.gif nixter's style BW processing.
Congratulations for the 1st place, this photo was my guess for the blue and top score (9)

Yup, at this point I'm starting to think that we somewhat deserved that lonely yet proud "one" :)

Winner in every way.
Great shot!

There's something I simply must share about this photo.

There's an italian scooter and motorcycles manifacturer, Piaggio, which makes a scooter called... Typhoon 50.
http://images.moto.it/images/316969/HOR_STD/1000x/08-typhoon-50.jpg

Now, I know that those two scooters in the bottom left corner aren't Typhoons.. but when I saw this picture and I read the title I couldn't help but think that it might be somewhat intended.

So double score for me!

Wow - that's wet indeed! Love the composition with the alien eyeballs of the scooters in the lower corner, the scurrying, colorful children, and yes that poor guy with the hat trying to make sense of it all. And all that rain! Marvelous.

Don't you just love a rainy day image! You've captured the enthusiasm very well, the enthusiasm to get dry again! My top pick!
