This was taken in Yorkville, a very fashionable shopping and cultural area here in Toronto, on a Sunday afternoon a couple of summers ago.
While having a coffee outside, I spotted a couple sitting nearby, reading, and enjoying a lazy afternoon in the warm, summer weather.

Well framed. Good lighting on subject, and enough light to cut the shutter speed for more exposure and perhaps more yet to stop down for better depth of field. Focusing on the Starbuck's cup may have helped that, too. The color seems awfully blue. The Nikon F is a great camera with that prism finder, but a beast with the Photomic finder.

Thanks Jim.
Despite having my F for about twenty years, I've never used it with a Photomic finder. Too big and bulky, with slow metering and batteries that were difficult to find. I immediately slapped a DE-1 and then later a meterless F finder on it, which I've used ever since.
I could have stopped down a bit more, but didn't because of people and unwanted objects on the rock in the background, which I wanted to throw out of focus. In the end I removed them in Photoshop.
As for the blue colour, it stems from the grey-blue rock. I played with the colour until the skin tones seemed correct, but there is so much rock and concrete that it tends to overpower the other colours.

My eye tends to be draw to the strong color and in focus print of the large page of the paper but I like this very much. Good separation from the background and the obvious good timing with the yawn. Your title sums upon the facial expressions and body language of both very well.

I am also drawn to the newspaper, then up to the guy. Good capture. The blue doesn't bother me, because the skin tones look just about right.
