Congrats on your top 10. did a nice job of making it feel ethereal, which adds to the sense of isolation of the two, as though there is nothing else in the world but the two of them.

This is wonderful! Makes me smile just to look at it. Such a candid and tender moment. I'd love to see the original for this one... seems like it could have started as just your average snapshot, but was turned into a magical photo with your post processing. Congrats on your top 10!

Excellent high contrast (or whatever) shot. Like a painting and a photograph combined, only in black and white.
