Beautiful day in San Francisco. Spent a while moving around the arrow trying to capture people in Cupid's crosshairs ... nobody said anything, but they must have wondered what I was doing!

This one is shot facing the bay, with the sun behind me. Here's a view from the other side:

Oh wow, now there's a perfect location for this challenge. I don't know whether this is a candid or a setup, but if it's a candid, then you have some excellent luck in catching this.

Great downtown S.F. shot! Although the bridge in the background is distracting, in Basic Editing, there is nothing you can do (post-processing-wise). I gave you an 8.

oh god, I sewar that gaudy scupture is so stupid...but whatever, nice capture! I like that you got the bay bridge in there. I have the feeling that this might have looked better in black and white. Did you do this on a friday?...if so I was there too :)

Very clever...

Cool symbolism. I like how the couple is positioned right on the arrow. I don't think it's legal for this contest to clone out the bridge, but I'd do it for any other prints.

good idea

Well... this is one of the best if not the best presentation of love on the challenge... The only thing that bugs me is that the couple could have been totaly on the right hand side of the arrow... not under like it is now... but maybe you wanted it like this ?
