I took this in Yotsuya with my old MX500. I liked how the old lady walked hand in hand with the old man. She seemed stylish and romantic and the image kind of stuck with me as has the photograph.
I'd like to improve the sky and make it bluer but couldn't.

I like it, but think it could do with a bit of cropping. I know it would be a lot harder to take, but a view from the front would be good to see too. Anyway I did a workshop.

I agree that a bit of cropping would work nicely. It would be better to crop off a bit of the sidewalk and leave the beautiful tree branches. Your shot is superbe in that aspect, you have created a lovely "umbrella" over your subjects heads and it left some gorgeous negative spaces behind. I agree that the sky would be better bluer too, with Photoshop you could do it, but if you want it to look really good it will take a long time to perfectly select in between all of those branches. I have attempted different things similar. You can check out the postprocessing notes in some of my different shots for instructions, especially the one entitled mother and child.
