this is such a great shot. great expression on their faces. i love the tones and the way the couple is off-center with the bridge in the background. one of my favorites in this challenge.

Well done! Not a lot more I can add.

Nice natural expressions on the models. Really fits the challenge well.

Nicely done, the walk bridge (white) is a bit of a distraction.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2008 07:26:29 AM
nice colors and tones.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nice shot, crop, and great DoF.

Only nitpick is that the bridge (?) in the background pulls the eye away from the young couple, and on my monitor it blends into the back of his shirt providing a further distraction. If this wasn't a 'Basic Editing' challenge you could have that fixed in two moments - but hey

That aside a nice shot.

Nice lighting qualities

A feel good photo. I like the PP on it, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 09:46:21 PM
Fits the challenge very well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 08:05:42 AM
Good composition, only a bit over exposed so the white shirt is "melting" with the bridge, which is a bit distracting at least for me, otherways - I love the greenish greyish tone of the photo.

Wow, how'd you get Tom Brady to pose for you??
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 01:42:33 AM
love the soft colors, nice tone to this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 11:51:36 PM
good shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 10:02:27 PM
The color and lighting is just perfect and the softness adds to this tender moment. Reminds me of what an engagement photo should look like. Lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful shot. Great colors and contrast. Conveys a true sense of intimacy. I do have to wonder what they are looking at/talking about...perhaps a little mole on the back of his hand? : ) Nicely done. Back to bump you up to 9. One of the best.

It's a bit cheesy, but it works! I love the tone! 8

Very nicely posed. The white background is unfortunate since it looks like it merges with his back and really distracts. A different angle would really help that issue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 07:25:12 AM
Wow.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 06:25:22 AM
This shot to me captures true intimacy. Fun, love, togetherness. I love the composition and the coloring. Great expressions. Eyes looking down makes me feel like they're sharing a private intimate moment. Great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Graet shot!!! except for the background, I am still trying to identify that big white thing in the back that merges with the guy's shirt. Too bad this was basic editing, otherwise you could have done something about it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is beautiful! It is cool that you left it in color though because people tend to make this kind of shot black and white so they can depend on the nostalgia of it, but you have relied on the lovely candid moment, good framing and depth of field to make a strong color image. Nice
