Thanks for all the comments and faves! :)
The shot did a lot better than I expected.

It was a very fun experience to be out shooting in the pouring rain. A first for me and from now on, rain or shine shall bring photographic opportunities. So if it's raining you could get a new angle on things to shoot, no time to be lazy ;)
After getting somewhat soaked, glady the 20D and companion G10 made it out alright. Special thanks to Pawdrix for making me go out that day by not cancelling the meetup. I don't get the chance to frequent the city as often as I would've liked and it was well worth the trip.

Just checking out my favorites folder and fell in love with this photo all over again. I love shooting in the rain (as long as my camera is protected).

Did not get to comment when in voting but I definitely fell in love with the mood and magic captured here that I fav'ed it right away. Love the dynamic tones and the water drops that appear like jewels on the bare branches. Gratz on the high finish - a very lovely image.

This is gorgeous and magical. The scene reminds me of an IR photo that ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' IreneM did. I love it.

Sublime. I love the crisp details of the trees and the soft focus on the poets. Great title, too. 10.

Perfectly titled, and a wonderful photo. Like a small theater simply waiting for patrons. The lights are already lit in anticipation.

Imaginative and creative photograph...great melancholy moodiness!

Love the water droplets on all the intricate little branches. Nicely captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2009 09:31:51 AM
Neat! I love the drops on the branches. What cool effect. This photo feels very very wet. I like it. It might have been even better if the boats were better framed by the branches; they sort of creep into them a bit, which makes them harder to appreciate.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really really like the reflected water drops above juxtaposed with the soft focus boats below. Inspired.

BW processing.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - sometimes I find myself commenting on images that span niche and mainstream audiences, this is one of those images! I'll be picking one of the images I commented on in this series for the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives: A very beautiful image that benefits from your choice of where to focus. The boats , though out of focus are no less a fundamental subject of the image that your crisp branches. The light and colour here are quite magnificent - you really have captured the essence of this rainy day. This image has the feel of someone who is right at the top of their game - I'm eager to find out who crafted this.

Critical stuff: Nothing at all.

Overall: 10 and a fav, enough said!

this is quite interesting to me...I like the little drops of water that look like lights in the trees and I like the "feel" that I get with the boats

Sweet work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The water glistening in the branches is great and works well against the deluged boats

Perfect title. I really like this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awesome!

I think you pretty much nailed a scene I've been been wishing I could shoot for awhile. There's a great low hanging tree by my work that always has drips on it like this. The scene behind it is unfortunately just a parking lot. Thanks for showing me how it's done!
