    Wow, I love the old couple. I think I would have liked to see their faces, to get to know them...

    Also, its a shame all the modern cars are in there. This could have been a shot from any of the recent decades.

    Really nice shot.

    I adore this...

    Perhaps a bit (just a bit) dark overall, and espectially heading toward the real estate kiosk, but the area with the couple is a bit brighter and this helped draw my attention to them. I love how you caught them: he in midstride, his arm in hers - she leading the way just a bit - makes her seem fiesty.

    You guys are usually one of my first sounding-boards for images I'm unsure about. In this case, I didn't want to say much in advance but as some of you may have noticed, the image has been heavily dodged and burned in PS - just like we "old folk" used to do in the traditional darkroom to achieve this effect. I'm glad it is receiving a generally positive reaction.

    areuwhatudream, I would be doing something great to emulate Cartier-Bresson. He has always been one of my favorites.

    Great job dodging and burning. I love the feel of the shot and I LOVE the way a Leica shot looks... it's so distinct.

    Very nice! A little dark overall for me but an excellent capture.

    Wow, that is spectacular! I'd order a print of that one! Very very nice composition, and I love the contrast.

    Ah... dodged & burned. I was wondering how you got the exposure on the couple so light like that. I think it's very nice.
