Another probably DPC-unfriendly shot for this month's FS. Ah, well, it was the best thing I shot this month. Maybe I'll get off my butt and start doing more challenges soon. This was downtown L.A. after a series of rain storms; these two have no idea I shot 'em. They were just too adorable not to.

In post, b/w, d/b, vignette with the lens correction filter, sharpen with high pass, and resize.

Enjoy it, I know I do.

I like the inclusion of the slightly OOF sityscape to give the lovebirds the context, makes a more interesting shot than if they were cropped closer. Very Nice.

The vignette is a little strong, and I'd go for a closer crop. Other than that, you have captured a nice street feel in your street photography here.

I like the overall composition, the focus, the vignette but the subject doesn't hold me.
