    This is such a great pose Alan and I loved what you did with it in Photoshop:) How did you get the back ground to do that and your subjects in such great clarity if I may ask?

Thanks Kimberly. I experimented with the Blend Modes from the Layers pallet until I had something I liked. The original was in color. - Alan

Wonderful couple portrait Alan!! Great atmosphere and feel to this image. They look very relaxed and comfortable with each other.

As usual you show some romantic theme in your photograph.

I absolutely like this image beyond words. I expresses so much!

I like the location where you shot this, and the white sweaters of these two love birds provide a striking contrast against the darker background.

Keep up the good work

Thanks Mihai,

I thought it was perfect for this month's "Love" theme so I re-submitted it. - Alan

I already gave a comment but I have to say this is a great lovely shot
i'd like to get a similar one with my hubby and I on there, do you think you could achieve the same results twice?

I'd like to think so, but photos of people are about so much more than the pose or the angle. It's the moment... how they felt, what they were thinking, and that invisible connection with the photographer. Or something like that :-)
