A quick grab shot taken this afternoon in Quebec City ... not the best shot from my vacation so far by a long shot, but one of two that best fits the challenge. Think this might elicit a few chuckles, and guessing a typical mid-5 finish for me.

A quick edit in LR 2.0, and now back out to grab some night shots before we head out of town and on to our next destination.

Post-challenge: Well, this did a lot worse than expected; guess the moment didn't overcome the technical failings. A typical pitfall of street photography around here. Yep, it was way oversharpened, because it was more than a little soft. Had to shoot quickly at a relatively low shutter speed with the lens fully extended before the moment disappeared forever.

HA! What a great fun shot. I love the "twins" and their facial expessions! There is so much going on in this photo and yet I immediately see the double take. Well done. 8
