Romantism 101

Take the 2CV out, head to the Seine River docks on a sunny but chilly October day. Then take a long walk facing the Eiffel Tower while the sun sets. Can it get any better ? (click on picture to enlarge)

    Fantastic image. My favorite from this month. I know you have a signature that includes the shallow DOF, but I can’t help but wonder if this composition wouldn’t be helped by more DOF to bring out more detail in the people and the Eiffel tower. But this is just idle speculation and your shot is just brilliant as it is. Thanks for sharing.

    Hatef, I have to agree with you. More DOF would have helped define better the background, especially the couple walking away. For once I had time preparing this shots and though about it for a while yet since I tend to shoot everything wide open to give a kind of impressionist feeling, I stuck to it. I like ot create impressiosn more than a strict descriptions.
