My wife and I work on this for at least an hour taking many photos with various poses. We finally got a few shots that we thought would work. This one seemed like the best. It was hard to get the lighting just right, as the sun goes down so quickly during sunset.

In post, I increased the contrast and then darkened the photo. I also cloned out some of the distracting trees, power lines and poles.

I think my favorite part of this photo (aside from the kissing of my wife of course) is the angle of the shopping cart. I love how I captured the underside.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A great image that fits the challenge very well.

I love this! This works really well, the silhouettes are very effective with the trolley forming the centre point and the binding bridge that both binds and separates you both at the same time. It makes the trolley an integral and strong part of the whole and as such completely meets the challenge brief with impact.

I like your low viewpoint it enables you to isolate the scene very effectively from any potentially distracting background. The background you do have is a very appealing sunset with a lovely blue sky that darkens around the upper part where you are both joined in a passionate kiss. The whole thing is very appealing and effective, well done. Your certainly getting your money's worth out of your new lens!

There are some good images on the front page of this challenge, its a real shame yours was not there too, it certainly deserved to be, better luck next time, Sid

Nice concept & good technical execution and should have done MUCH better than it did. Keep at it!

Nice idea for a composition & nice execution from a technical standpoint; certainly one of the "top 3" or so in this challenge.
