Taken during heavy rain with my trusty D90, Sigma 18-200 combo. Camera balanced on monopod and flash fired. I struggled with the exposure here and some compromises have been made

Despite the pouring rain, I decided to go out and take some photos tonight. I spent some time looking at some photos and got some inspiration from some photos on epz and this blog: http://www.onextrapixel.com/2010/04/26/80-rain-photography-taken-by-talented-pho... , before going out.

I have a few more of this scene with much clearer people, but I'm not going to post them because it wouldn't be fair to the people, so I'm putting this one, because her face isn't visible.

As shot, nothing done in photoshop.

To go out on a typically horrible, dull, very wet British day and produce something as bright and colourful as this took a lot of doing. Congratulations!

A very commendable approach and I'll take my hat off to you but in reality, you needn't worry.

I recently took some shots, standing in front of that black shutter to the left in your shot, amongst other places; faces and all and some of them have been uploaded to the net.

You certainly chose a rotten day to do it!

Bren.

Thanks, bren. I chose the night partly deliberately, I thought the wet floors would create nice reflections, plus I like the look of people carrying umbrellas and dashing through the rain, hiding under things etc. But yes, yesterday night was paticuarly cold and wet and I arrived home soaked with soggy shoes!

That was obviously a cunning plan and it's worked well.

I used to live up the road from Leicester Square and it was always a great place for shots of strange people. I used to just wait somewhere and be sure that before long, a weirdo of some description would come past. And at least one usually did!

I took my last shots, the ones I referred to above, on freezing Saturday afternoon last February and I didn't capture a single oddball. I had to move to Carnaby Street for that!

I think sharper people would detract from the colours and shapes of this wonderful shot. I also congratulate you on getting such a nicely balanced shot without having to resort to photoshop.

Great shot.
