A Sudden Gust of Wind by Pete-B A Sudden Gust of Wind by Pete-B
Influenced heavily by Jeff Wall and the opportunity of being in the right place at the right time.

This was going to be my entry to the =hellfirediva & *photonig competition. But tonight I came up with something else which I think will be a better entry.

I'm still a bit unsure I made the right choice. But I thought I would declare it now and then there is no going back :D

Full View Please :D

I painted the sky :D

Actually this was taken on a rainy day. I just boosted the contrast a little to get a better range of tones.

Please excuse the boring, rather predictable comments, but (again) this is a great capture with (again) great composition. Superb capture of the moment and mood (again).
Yada yada yada ;-)

I know exactly who you mean. Although I think it is more related to his one of the guy losing all the papers in the wind. The image itself is named after a Jeff Wall Photo of the same name. :)

There's something really interesting about the silhouette of the umbrella...really pleasing to the eye. Gorgeous.

Thanks Murray

I like how both umbrellas in this image have shown up. The light that day was quite dark and it was raining, so I really didn't think this picture would work. :)
