Photographer's Note

When it started to rain I couldn't help rushing out to capture the downpour. When I got out I started making shots from under the roof of the main-door. To my surprise and amusement I saw this girl dancing around :)

Then I went back in to put on a jacket to protect my camera from water when making a close up of the puddles. It took three days to get the jacket dry!

PP: I cloned out the trash-bin which disbalanced the compo (see original). It was pretty huge and looked black after I played with colours a little bit. I did some sharpening, too.

Now that I uploaded the shot, I see a lot of disadvantages. Well, it's up to you to point'em out :)

Shooting info:
ISO64, Flash, Infinity, Light-Metering: [oo] + ACDSee-Shadow-highlight

P.S. Two or three days after I posted this photo
I met this girl again. I saw her pass by when I was entering home. I recognized her by her manner of walking and by the clothes :)) I asked if she remembered the downpour and herself dancing. She said yes. So I gave her the original of this photo that I had printed for an exhibition. She laughed and said "thank you, haha I am so funny here!".
