A couple with one in a brightly coloured coat and matching umbrella -- walking in a rather drab, otherwise monochromatic environment. Timed to wait until couple were directly under arch, some birds removed from the sky to keep it uniform, edges of frame cropped in to remove distracting posts and signs, selective desaturation applied, and finally grain is added on purpose to "age" the photo a bit. Debated warming it to a sepia tone.
