Note: Burak Arik took this photo of the streets of San Francisco, California on a rainy night. The rain drops on the window from inside his vehicle adds a great deal of interest and feeling to the shot. The detail captured from the subjects with their umbrellas walking down the sidewalk, the cable car making it’s stop and the tall building in the background, portrays the night life in San Francisco very well. Excellent shot of the city.

Tip: When shooting in different weather conditions, it’s our nature to want the clearest shot possible. Sure this would’ve been a cool shot without the rain drops, but Burak didn’t wait to shoot when the windows were wiped clean. Instead it resulted in a far more dynamic and interesting shot.
