    hehe, excellent. πŸ™‚

  2. lol, nice capture !

  3. I’ve never managed to capture rain in such a magnificent fashion as this – not getting that much rain here in the first place doesn’t help my cause πŸ™‚

    Great lighting, composition and subjects!

  4. great capture! There isn’t much to do than laugh or cry in a situation like this and laughter is so much fun πŸ™‚

  5. A fine spontaneous feeling shot of these girls having a ball in the rain. How you managed to get this shot and keep the equipment dry would be a interesting. πŸ™‚ Added this to my vfxy collection.

  6. Wow! Nice rainy mood! Cool image

  7. A great picture, it almost looks like one of the old impressonist oil painintgs.

    Great work

  8. Nice street scene ! I like it

  9. Wow, that’s great. With the way the light is and everything those girls almost stand out from the background.

  10. This is a very interesting picture! I never saw a such light with rains! Pete, I suspect that you applied some HDR technics? I would be interested to have some hints on the approach you used.

    Thanks again,


  11. Beeeeeautiful shot. Captured the mood really well. Good stuff mate.

  12. @PH – No HDR on this one. The new shopping area in Liverpool has huge windows so on a night like this they put out quite a bit of light. Makes for a great photo.

  13. I agree with the others – great shot. It’s hard enough at the best of times to take a photo of the rain. To be lucky enough to get a candid moment in frame as well takes good timing and skill.

  14. Fantastic capture, excellent timing. I really like the whole bunch of details in there.
    But how did you keep your equipment dry?

  15. Excellent. I love the mood. They seem pretty happy even in the torrential downpour. There is a lot of energy in this shot.

  16. A great mood here. Rainy days in England can seem dreary, but you’ve changed all that with the fun Liverpool crowd and a really nicely lit scene. Rainy days in England… Big Fun! Really nice shot

  17. That is amazing!!!

  18. A beautiful image, very beautiful scene, magnificent colors.

  19. Amazing shot Pete, I love the vibrancy of the rain and the laughter – great capture πŸ™‚

  20. great shot ! interesting composition, and very eye-catching. i have featured this image/your site in my recent posting “20 Awesome Photoblogs”.check it when you have a moment. keep up the great work!

  21. Nice shot – I like the energy of it.

  22. Wow. I had no idea that this would be as popular as it was. It was a completely insane afternoon and I was standing in the middle of the street, soaking wet looking for a shot and this was it. My gear was soaked. I did nothing to keep it dry as I wanted to get shots.

  23. Terrific shot. It captures a little bit of the ‘joy’ of such a downpour. Great fun and a great catch.

  24. Wow – brilliant capture!

  25. Whats the Exif on this ? Im curious to know the settings you used to get this great rain shot.

  30. Your picture is amazing… I love this one because I walk there every evening, going back to work. And it’s often pouring of course. And being French I am not AT ALL used to girls dressed like this when it’s raining…
    Keep capturing the atmosphere of the city!!
