This is an out take from a recent engagement shoot in Toronto
The couple had a grand time. I told them to forget about the throngs of people walking by ... act natural.

There were many strange looks but we got the shot.

Clever shot and great post processing. I love how you have captured the couple pin sharp but managed to also get the movement of the pedestrians. I guess you don't get too many goes at a shot like this. Minor point, I would liked to have seen them more central to the converging lines of the background. Great shot, good luck!

Love this. Perfect use of selective desat. One of my top picks.

This photo promotes values I do not believe in, and I can not see how people would be kissing in the middle of the street, not to mention a busy one, where safety and other civil vital issues are being compromised, but as you feel so strongly about my previous (1) vote. I will change it to (5) as a photography courtesy.

Nice !! the spot editing works here IMO coupled with the motion makes this a powerful image. The only thing that bothers me is the car in the extreme lower right corner. 9

Awesome shot/image. From an amateur's viewpoint (me), this image inspires me... I like the desaturation of the image except for the subject couple. Great technique in long exposure to convey that the "rest of the world is moving on" but "time is standing still for the love birds." Composition and technique is right on to create the concept that the couple are in their own little world...at least that's what I get from it. Has to be a top ten...
