Birds are signing.. snow has almost finished melting, at least in the city, and love is in the air as we can see with this young couple...probably students from McGill, which we can see in the background (old green building).
Taken on the terrace at the foot of Place Ville-Marie in downtown Montreal, looking down at McGill College Avenue.
Taken from a good distance with my 1.75 x tele-converter. One of the few shots I took with this converter that I find a successful shot as far as the definition is concerned...
I know the couple is centered, but don't you think they look as if they were the center of the world and nothing else is important to them... I think that the lamp posts and the old McGill University building complete well the scene in a triangle composition...
Not a contest winning shot but still I am satisfied, especially to have captured these two ones without being noticed.

They're cute and seem to really be into each other. You've captured intimacy, and I like it a lot. Bravo!

I also like it for the fact that the two lovers are all by them self and specially for the body language the feet pointing toward each other the faces and the hands
Who knows what they are telling each other
Maybe they are promising things know …

Hello Nina, very good photo and the subject in the center is perfect, and why should it not? Too many people at TE think that we must absolutely put off center the subject. But if we look at different professional photographers, for instance, Robert Doisneau, many of his subjects are centered, think of Le baiser de l'hotel de ville and L'enfer to name a few.
So I agree with your view to center your lovers.
Good picture, well composed and I love the beautiful old buildings in the BG.
Take care, Yan
