nice capture amy... b+w suits the mood of all the rain we've been getting for the last week or so.... seems neverending!! fwiw..... i think you could crop out the right third of the shot... (just to the right of the street sign )really just empty space with not much of interest... would bring the rest of the shot into play.... like the store front signage... dave m

these threads get ran through so quickly and end up on the 2nd page which often isn't viewed. Interesting street scene, love the 70mm, great lens especially with the K-5. They seem like it is common place to have the rain and adjusting to spring weather. Thanks for the post. Bob

Thanks Dave... and you're right. The rain here in the Northeast has been non-stop... though I think there's hope for tomorrow and the weekend.

I thought about cropping it tighter... problem is, I didn't want to lost the restaurant sign in the background. In a perfect world, there's wouldn't have been cars there either. I'll have to see what I can do about the crop...

Thanks Bob... appreciate your thoughts. I'm so glad to have the 70mm again... I find it a great focal length for street shooting (though I like wider too). I've got to get my hands on an FA 31
