Here's how Sean got the shot:

"For this shot, I took my couple out in the rain and put my MagSphere on a Godox speedlight. To prevent the unit from getting wet, I also put a large, clear plastic bag over it. To create some compression and soft bokeh in the background, I shot this with a 105mm lens at f1.6."

Bravo to all of our winners! Thanks for being awesome!
