Great rain action, Wendy. Must have been a pretty heavy rain given the length of the drops at 1/80th of a second. How did you keep the camera dry? No matter what, it is a super composition.

OK Wendy whats the secret technique??? I'm guessing you randomly erased with various brush sizes and strokes? How far off am I?

Great lighting, and the shutter speed is just right to catch the motion of the drops. Really well done!

Thank you everyone for your great comments! There was no digital work done on this image. And I created my own rain Wally so my camera was spared! :o)

Thanks for your feedback everyone!
...and Marjorie...they were over 2 feet tall and said "Gladiolas" on the packaging from whence they came...so I have to believe them to be what they claimed to be! :o) But the tops, which is all you see, do resemble snap dragons! Thanks again everyone!
