A modern day version of the famous Cartier-Bresson image. Well done!! It is crisp and clean with the impact directed right where it should be. In your gallery I also loved the shots of "Da Burg," as they say in Pittsburgh-ese. I have made several similar images from that Mount Washington area. Good work. #4806915
