The fountains add to the romance.

Nice candid shot with great DOF. Yours is a picture that I looked at several times, so it has the quality that brought me bakt to look again. That is an important factor in a quality picture.

I'd b tempted to make grayscale to see if I could disguise the live couple as more atatues...

The people are meant to be the focus of the pictures surely ?

Great idea, wonderful subject, but the fountain dominates this shot. Saving grace, the couple does stand out and the fountain is beautiful. I would have preferred more of the subject.
One of the biggest downfalls in the digital photography world is the loss of detail in background subjects. This media doesn't have the complete depth of field that film has.
This photo is wonderful, digital done you dirt, one of the few times you will hear me say this. Photo 9 Creativity 10 People 9 total 9
I tried really, really hard to not discount this shot due to the nature of digital. Expressed at a much higher resolution, this would have been a 10 ++

What a secret moment! I'll bet they didn't even know you were there. The scene looks so bright and inviting!

I'm not certain, but I think a tighter crop would bring the subject closer to the viewer. The water on the right is nice, but distracts so much that it makes the primary subjects more of just a background.

Good subject, the water helps convey emotion in this shot. I think it would be better without the garbage can behind them = ) but there isn't anything you could have done about it and it doesn't detract too much. Also, I wish there was more detail in the couple, but 640x480 is very limiting there.

This photo is very sweet. A cute pose by the couple and really neat how the fountains are spraying water. Well done!

There's a lot that I like about this photo, but the strong sunlight is a bit harsh, I guess, and the water everywhere just seems chaotic and distracting instead of enhancing the image.

People seem a little washed out

Nice work! i think this is an excellent photo... It is slightly over exposed maybe but interesting, none-the-less :)

Very nice Photograph. The motion of the water add's a great deal of interest. One of my top 10.

Needs to be closer ... I am more drawn to the fountain than the people ...
05/27/2002 10:43:00 PM
An interesting picture, but the couple needed to be in sharper focus.
05/27/2002 03:47:00 PM
Peeping Tom...lol Nice work, creative idea and good action. Errrrh the water I mean. <g>
05/27/2002 12:39:00 PM
The fountain seems to be distracting the eye away from the couple.

Nice composition.
