This image was taken at the steps leading up to the Brooklyn Bridge on the Brooklyn side.
I watched as another photographer in our group waited for people to pass leaving the stairway empty before taking a picture. However, the scene begged for a point of focus. When I saw this young couple ascend, I clicked the shutter as they were under the street lamp. The couple under the light of the lamp makes this great photo and the steps lead the viewer to the focus of the image.
The original was fine, but the final image was converted to black and white in Topaz Adjust 4 to enhance the mood of the space. Hand-held – f2.8 and 1/20 sec at 21 mm.
