    Rules:

    1. You may only submit one photo per contest.

    2. The contest runs for exactly one week, from the first time stamp of the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest).

    3. Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. A good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography, so it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph.

    4. The judge will choose his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it, and include a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for choosing a new topic and starting a new contest thread, which will again run for exactly one week.

    This week's theme is: Rain


    A list of previous contests and their winners can be found here.
    This thread hasn't been updated for a while so I will try and fill in the gap here for those who are interested.

    There's no rule against it, but the more exposure a photo has had, the less impact it will make with the judge (assuming he's seen it).

    Ugh I kinda feel bad about using this photo because I just used it last week, but this is the only one I feel that meets the topic.

    I took this while it was raining, I took it from inside a car looking upwards through the sunroof.

    Does this fall in the category of rain?. It's taken from a point-and-shoot on 3MP burst setting, so I apologize for the lack of resolution. It's water splashing on our raft from a recent rafting trip.

    Has anyone tried to get a hold of Nicolasdec? The contest is over by about 2 days with no apparent judging having occured.

    Should I just judge it? I wouldn't mind if it meant getting a new contest going. I want to get out and shoot and a contest would be a nice way to get me off my duff.
