Fantatsic photograph, Bill. I love everything about this. The fence (of course) and the DoF is superb and with the couple just out of focus, but not enough to disguise the fact that they're in love. Very well done, my good friend - Allan #528825

William C. Raco 5/10/2004 6:54:57 PM

Wow, thanks for all the wonderful compliments.
It was fun to watch all the couples walk through this park hand in hand.
Most of them made it to this very spot on this bridge.
It was very romantic, and I'm glad I was able to convey that mood.
Thanks again,


Darren K. Fisher 5/10/2004 8:08:25 PM

First-rate photo essay on young love in the spring, Bill, you captured all the heartwarming elements beautifully here! (Although it does look to me like the young man is talking on a cell phone, maybe I need to adjust my monitor!) #530204
