I think this is my fav of the white washes.... because the dude's dark shirt and tender embrace becomes the focus :-)

Ralf Kesper from Fröndenberg, Germany

Well made high-key!

10 Oct 2012 8:50am

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

The couple make a nice romantic dreamy scene with your PP, don't you ever feel awkward taking shots of random people you don't know? I do, so I would never attempt anything like this.

10 Oct 2012 9:02am

@Ainsley: No I never feel awkward at all Ainsley, there's a simple secret to it all. I sometimes get in quite close and sometimes stand off just a little, I then compose the scene looking for all the world that I don't see the people in front of me, I pretend to be shooting into the distance way beyond them. In fact I might fire off a few frames until they are used to my presence (I'll delete them later) then a light swing of the lens brings them into view and SNAP! They didn't even feel a thing :-)

David from Ellemford, United Kingdom

Again, nice treatment.

Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

great shot and treatment - now I have read Chris's comment that is all I see - maybe you should take this down to the South Shields police station!!!!

10 Oct 2012 12:03pm

@Jules: Hey, life isn't like that in South Shields Jules, this was Blyth you know :-)

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

I too, like the focus on the fellow's dark shirt; everything else pales in contrast to his affection for her.
