This could have been soooooo much better with advanced editing. Could have lightened and darkened key areas, removed those pesky powerlines, ect. Oh well... I'm still happy with the result.

***From the Critique Club***

First Impression - the most important one:
Great! The ground is not quite horizontal, (which I like), definitely faceless, definitely extreme emotion! And GREAT perspective.
Composition:
Absolutely lovely... I think if it was me, not that me or anyone should tell you how to shoot, but I may have made sure the ground was level, and then move the frame a little to the left to get more of the side building which adds such great perspective.
Subject:
Definitely portrays emotion, and whoever they are have such great poses, makes me think that it wasn't a pose and they really are in love!
Technical (Colour, focus, and light):
Good colour, focus and light! I think I would have selectively saturated the sky a bit more, oh and regarding your comments about the power lines, donít worry about them I didnít notice until I read your comment, and otherwise you would have empty power pole down the picture! lol
Artistic:
Probably 9 out of 10 here. (I never gives 10's unless its perfect!) I think it would have been a 10 if you had done what I suggested above, level the ground and move frame left.
To grow its vote?:
See above!
Summary:
I really like it! A nice light image, that makes you feel good. Wonderfully composed and all of that.

Hey hey your highest rated image yet, good job! Congrats on breaking the 6 point boundary.

Happy shooting, CBoydrun.

Phenomenal. Imaginative, Original, but not the least bit obscure. This sings.

Good silhouette, nice composition, and great angle! Too bad about the blown highlights in the sky, but an excellent image overall.

Very appealing. I like that the sky isn't blown out but you still have detail in the pavement. Nicely done, good score from me!

Ok the sun is burning a hole in my screen try a polarized filter, again extreme would not descibe this photo dspite the subject matter.

I'm not sure what emotion is being expressed here. The title indicates a good emotion. I think a closer crop would help here so we can see the people better. Good perspective with the converging yellow stripes, but nothing else away from the people is really interesting.

Very cool leading lines. Picture is a little flat.

I think this could have been improved with a bluer sky, but I like the composition and leading lines. Seems to meet the challenge to me.
