    I have to disagree with stevebee and jade. I like the girl in the back ground. I like the contrast in the way she is sheltering from the rain while your main subject is rejoicing in it. Their figures book-end the composition. The 'distracting' background adds location and context to the shot for me and is not at all distracting, rather it is complementary. I also like the large drops that are on the lens or window. They add to the feeling of the weight of the water.

    I think SteveBee's comment has merit. Nice Finish!

    Great timing, is he jumping into a pool of water or does that come later in the season.

    Thank you for your comments. I agree I should've lessen the distractions or crop it tighter.

    Nice capture of his mid-air celebration. I might darken the girl in the background as she is somewhat distracting or maybe crop more tightly.

    Very striking image - the contrast between the man and woman adds a lot to the impact.

    I like how you were able to freeze the rain drops along with the subject. Exposure is nicely balanced and colors are lovely.

    Yes, you have a good eye and sense for what makes a great photo. Here it looks like this was shot through a rain splattered (and slightly spotty) window. If so, it detracts from the otherwise outstanding quality of the image.
