A ribbon in Street - yay!

I made sure I had a good look through 21.gif nixter's portfolio before I took this on. Education and inspiration to be found there.

I was lucky here though too. Framed up for the bench and the leading lines and then just pushed the shutter as my brain registered someone just walked into the frame. I lucked out with these happy skippy girls.

Thanks for the votes and comments.

Great shot Paul, I didn't vote on this one but I had a flick through the entries, this one stood out to me for it's good composition and great exposure. Really nice shot, especially under minimal editing restrictions. Well deserved ribbon
