Prone to being lost, and to folding inside out in the slightest breeze, the umbrella nevertheless helps keep our quiffs and beehives largely dry and intact when the heavens open. You might have had fun shooting an umbrella as a prop, or catching passersby wrestling with them in a storm.
Ranked Contests are a weekly chance to compete alongside photographers of a similar Leaderboard ranking. Three contests with the same theme run at one time - for photographers ranked 1-250; 251-1000; and 1001+. They open Saturday morning after that week’s leaderboard has been updated, and are open for 5 days. They are Premium Contests, Expert-judged, but with no Crowd vote, so are worth 3x the standard ranking points.
This contest is expert judged only with no rating by the crowd. You will be able to find out how you did when the judging or rating period has closed.
