It seems it raining over Europe nowadays, but this does not prevent us o take pictures. the umbrella, the wet pavement and the reflection on it confirm that it is raining!

une très belle composition N&B, la foule et les lumières créent une belle atmosphère.

a creative and wonderful B&W shot. Proof that rain should not dampen your enthusiasm for photography. This is both arty and beautifully compelling. It captures the spirit and mood of the city so effectively. Well done!
Have a good week - B.

Barcelona is lush even in the rain, B&W makes it look even more inviting.
one small criticism, your verticals are slightly off and are causing me to turn my head.
good shot all the same.

J'aime beaucoup cette photo qui pourrait être prise d'un film d'espionnage ou policier en noir et blanc. Le sol mouillé par la pluie donne de très beaux reflets.

hello Krzysztof ,
A very creative and artistic capture . The composition is excellent , with the dark man and its umbrella contrasting with the white reflections of te light on teh wet pavement .
Royaldevon (42683) 2014-06-09 5:53
Your shot has really captured the mood of a rainy evening.
The f/g allows the shadows to spread over the wet, reflective pavement and there is a strong focal figure to capture our attention. Beyond, the context comes to life, with further confirmation of the wet, gloomy conditions.
Have a great day,
mjw364 (1466) 2014-06-09 6:28
Yes - it rained! Great shot making the most of the situation and holding an umbrella at the same time - multi-tasking! El born - my favourite district - because of Big Fish!
rogerl (1632) 2014-06-09 7:50
Krzysztof, well done with one hand! A very moody shot, and obviously taken in very difficult lighting. The fact that everything is wet really adds to the image, creating lots of interesting reflections. Thanks.
lousat (96833) 2014-06-09 8:42
Not the best weather to take a trip,but a great opportunity to take an original pic,i like the lot of space dedicate to the wet floor and the light reflections,beautfiful blurred people in backgrouns that looks like movie actors,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
ikeharel (77407) 2014-06-09 11:05
Washed city by night, good choice of B&W, Krzysztof.
Not easy to coupe with such a weather if you are a stranger-tourists in a town - not in your country.
Bright light reflection on wet pavement collected fairly good.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-06-09 12:57
Excellent in B&W this shot is packed with atmosphere Krzysztof. Proof that the sun doesn't need to shine in order to create a stunning image!
jcpix (13930) 2014-06-09 20:16
I hope you didn't post this on my account after giving you grief. :))
Never hurts to say it again, I could look at these kinds of pictures all day long...awesome shot on a rainy night! Tough conditions to work in, no doubt, but what a tremendous result and effect nature can have over a scene such as this. All the pavement needed was some rain to make it dazzle, and smart work behind the lens to make it really come to life with mood and allure.
Then of course, the processing work to create clarity with strong contrast raises the level of interest even more. Just walkin' in the rain...but oh, what a super finish it's rendered. Love it! Great work my friend, thanks for sharing part of your trip. Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from the sunny skies of Az.,

I know it's a different city, and a different time but as soon as I saw this I thought of the movie blade runner! It has that big gritty urban feel to it, the shadow the man nearest the lens is really great, and he helps create a fine sense of epth, drawing the eye in further to explore this place. It's must be said that as much as most of us dislike the rain, it sure does bring its own sense of mood and mystery, as you so pertly show here.

Witaj Krzysztof, faktycznie trafila Ci sie deszczowa pogoda w cudownej Barcelone. Zdjecie wylo Ci dokonale, te odbicia swiatla na chodnikach. Bardzo ladnie wykonane zdjecie jak rowniez podoba mi sie ze zrobile w kolorze B&W. Bardzo fajny efekt.

une photo qui fait aimer la pluie. Une belle scène nocturne avec de beaux reflets.
Mics (982) 2014-06-18 1:50
You may not have the perfect condition but you have a very nice composition. A camera and an umbrella on a rainy evening?..."it's not so obvious that you're a sucker for pictures". :-):-)
Keep on shooting,
serp2000 (45610) 2014-06-20 8:36
Yes, I can understand you. We were in Spain twice and we had have two rainy days. The Atlantic ocean could changes the weather here and your plans would be correcting. Anyway, the rain gives us interesting and amazing topics. I think, it's good result. Well done.
ourania (50679) 2014-06-21 2:39
I'm sorry I was so late to find out your latest posting, it's a remarkable b&w scene with great depth, sense of movement and atmosphere. I like very much the presence of only one person and his shadow in the foreground, there's a sense of loneliness that goes well with the mood of the rainy evening and the mysterious people. I also like the glistening texture in the greater part of the frame as well as the graduating greys. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Fantastyczna praca! Jestem pod dużym wrażeniem jej artystycznego przekazu. Pięknie złapałeś oraz zrealizowałeś ten moment. Brawo!

Very nice b&w nocturnal capture from Barcelona with very good layout and perfect graophism.
TFS and have a nice weekend
macjake (71839) 2014-08-06 6:24
you haven't been around on TE for some time, we all miss seeing your new posts! Hope you come back soon.
so you're not having much luck with the weather in Barcelona eh? I share your pain my friend.
but i guess you just have to deal with whats given to you, and thats exactly what you did here.
a very moody and mysterious image.
see you around
mvdisco (17796) 2014-08-07 7:46
Hi Krzysztof, Bonjour,
I like the rainy atmosphere in this composition,
I like so the B & W version and the reflection on the sidewalk,
Very well done..

Lubię deszczowe zdjęcia, a przy takim świetle ludzie jawią się jak duchy, czarno-białe zdjęcie zwiększa kontrast i to wrażenie, że duchy
willperrett (11760) 2014-10-13 9:26
Stonking monochrome street shot here. I like your rule-breaking inclusion of so much blank foreground pavement: it adds distance, and maybe a slight degree of detachment, even alienation perhaps. Good work.
delpeoples (59684) 2014-10-24 23:11
The weather may not have been good for you, but it has helped to create a very moody and artistic photo. I love the B&W, the strong contrasts and the reflections in the rain on the roadway. The silhouettes really create a wonderful atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing
