Looks like snow or is it rain. Good capture.

I don't understand the title but I don't vote on that.
The white spots will probably cause this photo to garner a low vote. If it was a flash that caused them, which I think is usually the case, turning it off would have helped. Beyond the flash, I like the streaks of falling rain and the scene. A long exposure would have created a pretty picture with the texture of the rain. I apologize if I'm wrong about the flash.

too much noise for me, but I like the crop.

There doesn't appear to be much to draw me into this photograph. The image quality is lacking---too much rain got on the lens, thus the all the white spots and smears. It's kind of messy looking without being particularly artistic. I feel like if there had been someone standing by the light or passing through, reacting to the rain I could forgive the poor image quality becuase I like the placement of the light in the composition. The light on it's own just isn't interesting enough.

The glare from the lights is distracting.

I'm panicking here...Looks like snow...Is that snow...NOOOoooo...It's only September.
Kidding...Your rain does look like snow though, prob because of the lighting.

I really am not ready for snow!

This could have been a great image but the glare and the very bright lights spoil it a bit
