Not so fun in the rain smile

THAT is worth more than a thousand words, John! Is it raining or is that a texture you used?? I love the effect.
John Prior: Thanks Ginnie, it had been raining, but that is a sneaky rain effect smile

Is this some sort of daily ritual John?
John Prior: Thanks Chris, I only saw them once, but I did find other shots on Flickr, I think it could be.
It's something I'd never thought of - racing on the canals of Venice.
Is that real rain, or added texture?
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, it had been raining, but that is a sneaky rain effect smile

All weather rowers, good effect John smile
Love this shot..They are putting some effort into this..That rain effect is good John.
I see the women are doing all the hard work
I like the tones and textures in this John.
It's the first time I see Venice in a rainy day! It's still a charming town!!!
Have a nice day.

The rain makes this look a little like a charcoal drawing.
I wonder why they are standing. Good shot and treatment john
