Lots of stories here, none of them happy or nice. Wonderful capture. the light on his face is splendid. Leading lines all around. Well done. Matt

I like this a lot. The light is really nice and you did a great job with the exposure. I find the reflective sign across the street from the couple to be distracting. I think I would remove that.

Thanks for looking, Erich. This one was a bit difficult, exposure wise. As for the reflective sign, they frown on removing things from buildings I don't own. I did burn it down considerably.

The photo is excellent - well "spotted" (how could you not?), well taken in challenging light, well processed. But much as I enjoyed the photo itself, Steve's and Matt Quinn's comments took the thread to a new level. Though I'm sick as a dog, I just couldn't help laughing. Thanks to all 3 of you for that!
