The colors and ethereal street lights add lots o' romance to this shot! Nice spying!

I love the mood of this and that the couple comes into view as in real life, as you look around.

Hmmmmm!!!! An atmospheric shot.

If this was a candid then I can see why the subjects are "remote" but is set up then a tighter portrait image would be better.

However, for this I would prefer a a crop of the left hand side putting the kissing couple on the thirds and losing all that dead space.

how sweet
It may have been better if you were closer to the couple

This photo to me is too wide open. I would have tried to bring it in a little closer to the subjects because as it stands now I think you lose the impact of your message by barely being able to see them. Maybe even gone more verticle with it to include the top of the street lamp and less of a horizontal shot.

Good idea but a bit a little too dark

I think the light source on the top should be cropped. Anyway, I like the story and the composition here. :-)

Placing the couple in a small section of the picture is very effective. Leaving in the background gives the picture an ambiance that a closer point of view would have lost. The way the lights and the lighter sidewalk lead toward the coulple adds to the effect of the composition.

Good capture, but wish we could see more of the couple and less of the street.

This is a nice, simple image. Very cute, exposure just right.

Creative and nicely composed. The closest streetlight competes for my attention and I think it distracts from your subjects.

Evocative. Nice moment...

Much tighter crop or even a portrait crop would make this a better shot IMHO.
