Lovers at the canal

A young couple chatting in front of "bassin de la Villette", in Paris.

 

In terms of post-processing, the picture is an HDR combining two pictures of different exposure (around 4s duration). The background bokeh is unfortunately artificial (made in the Gimp), my camera doesn't open enough. I added some film grain on top of the bokeh, to match the noise of the camera (Lumix DMC-TC60, shooting in raw mode).

 

As surprising as it might seem, I did not do anything to the colors. They are created by the neon lights of the bars and cinemas around the canal.
