    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    An Early Walk in the Park.

    This is still a part of my images from San Antonio, Texas. We were going down the stairs to see the scenery near the Alamo River when I saw this couple taking an early walk in the park. I'm glad because I'm the first one to go down the stairs so no one is blocking my view. Unfortunately, all my kids are getting impatient to get down so I was only able to take one shot and this is it.

    I like it. The composition works well (although the right lower corner is a bit busy, so are the trees). To conversion is also good.
    Keep them coming Jiro .

    I wish I could really prune those trees, Jeroen. If given more time to compose my shot I could have gotten a better perspective. Too many things to consider in my mind at that time. In the end, I don't want to lose the couple on the spot where I want them to be so I pressed the shutter and I got this one. I'm really glad I was able to do something about this shot in the post-processing. Thanks for the nice comment, bruddah.

    You might want to put this new feature on your camera. Trees in positions you don't want them to be won't be a problem anymore!!

    That was one awesome piece of machinery! Still, nothing can beat photoshop when it comes to multiple prunings! Hehehe. Just kidding.

    Nice shot. I always love taking a stroll down the riverwalk.There are other parts of the San Antonio river that are away from downtown that offer up some great photo ops. Thanks for posting!

    I totally agree with you, Joe. We only stayed there for the weekend so 2 days is not enough. Also, having the kids with you is really a predicament to explore a lot of photographic opportunities. LOL! Just joking. I hope we can come back again so I can shoot some more. Cheers!

    XD I'm not much of a photographer, and I'm working dutifully on framing and composition, but to my eyes, I think the trees are quite pleasing. It kind of frames the couple walking down the river-walk - it seems to set the mood between them So, I really enjoy the trees, but considering I'm not exactly anywhere near close to having my pictures as nicely done as this, all I can offer is really how pleasing this is to my eyes. The color fits nicely with the scenario. Thank you for posting such a beautiful picture~

    Kudos~
