    Having Fun On An Icy Cold Day...

    So I was out and about and admiring the urban landscape and how in 19 degrees, people were going about their business as if it were 75 outside. These people were having so much fun I took a picture of them taking a picture. I should have tweaked my settings better to try to capture some motion blur but my fingers were too frozen and I wanted the shot (!) I haven't pp'd it yet (the guy on the phone is coming out). I would love to know what you think of the composition and focus...[IMG]Having Fun On An Icy Cold Day...[/IMG]

    Sorry..I got impatient to see the whole Bean, so I (with great shame - well, maybe not) gave it a quick fixer-upper. It is just as I imagined it would look all finished. Thanks for the walk back down Memory Lane.

    I see that you brought it front and center, straightened it, fixed the contrast, cropped and lightened it... what else am I missing (and thank you - I'm trying to learn photoshop...)

    A little bit of color correcting and a layer mask to heighten the overall light to dark balance. I see they took out the middle section. When I was there, it had some sort of "store" place right in the middle...certainly didn't fit.
    Also blurred the buildings in the background.

    A little bit like this (I was working with Lightroom for the first time...)? I corrected color, blurred the background a bit (and lowered saturation) and cropped and tilted...
