Wow. The tone range in this is sublime!!! Sharpness and the faitly monotone in such a brilliant colour are great too but I feel it'x the emotive composition which makes this photo the gem that it is. Added to my faves.

WOW!
I've had the biggest cheesy grin on my face the last 24hours! I am so chuffed with my first ribbon (thinking about printing one out and sticking it to my chest...), and to get so many kind words especially from so my people whose work I really admire. I really didnt think I'd do this well! This year my 2 goals were:
1) get a photo in the 7's
2) get a ribbon
So I'm thinking of retiring now!

Thanks again for all your votes, this has been a real boost to my confidence.

Cheers
MARK

EDIT:
Here is an out-take from the challenge, there was a dood walking past in this one, but i managed to clone him. Glad i submitted the one I did!

The grad filter looks a little strong but it helps create the monochromatic feel to the image. I like the framing of the couple and the kiss of light on the side of their heads.

Should be on a card or calender. Very nice lighting focus and scene. 10

This is a beautiful sky. The light is great. The composition is a little off IMO. The OOF grass blades in the foreground are distracting, and the couple is perhaps a bit too centered. Still one of my top picks.

The lighting ere is jut beautiful. I reallly love this shot. Nice job

Awesome pic! 10

Not that it's a bad thing, but the lighting and the reflection make this almost look like a painted backdrop like in a movie. Looks like a great place ... easy to imagine being there.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2005 08:39:07 PM
Amazing colors and tones and processing. That horizontal blade of grass on the left really ruins this in my opinion. You should try to clone it out. 9

A very calm and romantic shot, a keeper for sure. I love the horizon. 8.

Wonderful, reversed warming graduated ND filter? Doesn't matter how, it works. Very warm and romantic mood on what probably was a cold day. :)

Wow, this is one of the week's best. It meets the challenge very well, and I particularly like the overall copperish color tone. Great job.

Looks like Gordon :D ?

Lovely tobacco feel, last light of the day, full of warmth (although actually looks cold) Super shot.

Beautiful image. Colors and mood and title are great. Only flaw is that the subjects are too centered. Top 5. Good luck.
