Rain winner

Rain winner

The winner of this week's Reader SunShots theme "Rain" is Joseph M. Peightel of Catonsville for his photo from a rain delay during an Orioles game. An avid Orioles fan, Peightel made the photo with a Nikon D90 and an 18-200mm lens at 200mm. The exposure was 1/100th second at f/5.6 and 200 ISO. Peightel writes "The lights back-lighted the downpour and allowed me to capture the intensity of the rain." Photo Editor Christopher T Assaf critiques " A nearly complete abstraction of the light, the offset composition adds to the moodiness. The limited gray palette heightens the gloomy feeling of the game, and fun, being delayed."
