Getting Ready for the Night

Canon 80D
Canon 70-200mm Mk ii lens
ISO 6400

Standard LR editing, Photo was taken with 1/3 overexposed and brought down in Post, a little extra vibrance and contrast applied.

Walking on the Durban North walkway, I noticed these ladies just sitting there and took the photo, and only realized that they are 'Ladies of the Night'. afterwards.

I just love the grain created by the high ISO and decided to do no noise reduction. I also love the way the light falls on the ladies.

Edward I think if you changed your position a bit, using the stairs a a leading line it would maybe have worked a bit better, it would also help with the clutter in the back

Edward, this feels a bit like a snapshot with very little intent and visual structure. The two people, which I assume is your focal point, gets lost against all the clutter in the background and foreground; especially the cars. A tighter crop - medium shot - would have been more effective in isolating the figures.
