Pic of the Week: Cycling in the Rain by Peter De Marco

editorial image

I captured this image on my visit to Amsterdam in February.

It was late afternoon just before darkness was setting in and it was starting to rain heavily.

My favourite parts of the image were the refection on the cobbled street and the chap holding the umbrella.

Due to the poor lighting conditions I had no choice but to pan this shot which involves using a slow shutter speed and following the subject with the camera as you take the shot.
