Like i said great shot. One thing though. A bench in the bottom of the frame could have helped "ground" the shot. it would have made it clearer that she hanging on the balcony. When I i saw it the first time I had a hard time figuring out what was going on. Nevertheless, it's a great and original shot. It's good to have you on the site.

What a great shot my friend, the lighting is right on, and the setup and shot is just lovely. My wife absolutely loves this picture also and hit me in the arm and asked why I never hold her like this. I didn't respond. Well done and congrats on the ribbon.

This shot kills ... I lalala Love it. My only problem with it is that I wish I had taken it. Congrats on a super image ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2007 05:13:24 PM
How cool is this!!!

Love the composition.

The mood shines through very strongly. The couple seems so in tuned with each other that their surrounding seem to have so impact on them, and at the same time, their surrounding really add to the effectiveness of the shot.

Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2007 04:31:52 PM
It gives me a great feeling to view this passionate couple exhibiting all the exciting possibilities of love. Very nice work (as usual).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2007 04:16:08 PM
Really terrific image - and there I was thinking you had taken it from a balcony above, looking down on them: she is lying down and he is standing on a lower level - got all complicated in my head...? Well Escher would have been proud!! Lovely work.

02/28/2007 03:13:44 PM
This is so nice! Great work and congratulations on the ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/28/2007 12:51:54 PM
A perfect illustration of what can be achieved when the right and left brains work together in absolute harmony.

You've married the organic, emotional and colorful to the geometric, analytical and monochromatic in a ceremony of classic composition.

I LOVE it! Another well deserved ribbon.

Parabéns por mais uma fantástica imagem, perfeita em todos os aspectos.

02/26/2007 01:11:59 PM
what an excellent find! or is this staged? either way, i like this. this not only says about love but also about trust she has in his arm-strength :) 9 from me.
a little better exposure would have earned full-house-10 though.

Nice allusion to the famous magazine cover in the 40's or 50's. "Sailor boy comes home & gives his one true love a hearty kiss with a dip to boot." :) But the real question is..."Am I looking at a man on an upper level holding his love off the side?"...or...as I suspect "Am I looking at a woman lying down on an upper tier with her love standing up & leaning over?" (Top-Down view.)

02/22/2007 11:59:46 AM
Nice photo. Simple and elegant setup, unique angle. Eyes are drawn to the subject. Excellent composition. Best one in this contest. I can't tell if this is taken from above with the woman lying down, or if the man is hanging over a wall.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2007 06:47:32 PM
really amazing. I'm guessing top 10. How did you do it? that's a heck of a jump, and I can't imagine that he's holding her up from that angle.
great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2007 06:12:41 PM
That's just scary! Lot of trust demonstrated here. And nice composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2007 05:06:30 PM
Very cool shot. I'm guessing that she is actually laying down, and that this is a birds eye view. Either way you shot it, it was very well executed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2007 03:58:22 PM
WOW I really like this. How did you do this was he holding her? How did he get her back up? I would like to see a bit more contrast or just a tad darker because there are places on the girls face and dress that are just a tad blown, but I still LOVE what you ahve done here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2007 03:29:38 PM
Awesome shot. good location, great outfits, great negative space and concept. 8 . .After viewing all the rest, this is one of my favorite two!. .you BETTER get 1st or 2nd. . 10.
