Their activity is Waiting for the Rain to Stop; this type of storm is over in quite a short time.

The title of the challenge being "Rain", the great expanse of foreground is there because it shows the splashy heaviness of the rainshower. This is already a crop of the larger picture.

If I were to infer the subject purely from the DOF I'd think that the bushes and stone curb were the intended topic. If this shot is supposed to be about rain, shooting the fractured reflections of the people in the puddle would have both met the challenge theme and added a clear subject.

Nice focus & DOF. Good color too. The subject matter doesn't really appeal to me personally, but it's not a bad shot.

Definitely meets the challenge! I obviously don't know what you're shooting with, but if there would have been any way to crop closer/get closer to show the expressions on the face, I think it would have been a truly excellent shot.

Nice catch of every day life people sheltering during a downpour. Very good for the challenge to include a lot of foreground splashing.

Definately meets challenge. Looks like a cloud burst. Just not a very interesting picture.

I think it needs closer cropping. Perhaps just focusing on the right half of the picture, which is what I find most interesting. I love the look on the man with the brown shirt and blue pants.

Nice urban setting. I like the color that the blue jeans and the cones add.

I like this, so typical people waiting for the rain to subside, rarely seen in a photo.
