  1. 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 :-)

    Great lighting, composition and subjects!

  2. great capture! There isn’t much to do than laugh or cry in a situation like this and laughter is so much fun :-)

  3. 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. :-) Added this to my vfxy collection.

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

  5. 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,


  6. @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.

  7. 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.

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

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

  10. 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

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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!!

  14. A beautiful image,very nice,i love your emage and rain,
    thank you
