I like this shot. It has emotion in it. I can feel myself walking up the street and meeting this couple.

I agree that the crop is a bit tight on the left hand side. The bag is cut off a little. The crop makes feel a bit crowded. I like how it's cropped off at the bottom, with the wheel and the foot being cut off, that shows the movement of the people in that direction.

The desaturation works really well for this, as it does most street shots. The whites seem a little blown out, especially the top of the hat, the sky and the building behind them. So much as the top of the hat blends into the sky with no distinction between them.

Hope this helps. Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions or comments to this. And, as always, if it's helpful, please mark the check box.

Just love this - great clarity and subjects. Really good conversion to B+W too.

She looks so unhappy. Well composed, even though a bit tight on the left side.

I don't know why, but I find it interesting that there are shoes for sale behind her, and she has to wear the special velcro shoes. Don't know if this was intended...but it adds interest, for me, at least.
