Excellent catch, Sanjay! Love their body language and how the different color umbrellas reflect their perspnalities! A truly OUTSTANDING shot that suggests a wonderful story!! #195372

Jordi Delgado 12/10/2004 12:23:50 AM

LOL!!! Wouldn't it be easier for them to share the same bench??

Excelent capture, Sanjay!!

:-)) #963557

Danilo Piccioni level-classic 12/10/2004 12:23:51 AM

Super Sanjay! hey, maybe they were talking of the weather....LOL #963558

Tracy D. Siermachesky 12/10/2004 12:32:04 AM

Awesome capture, Sanjay! Love the composition and it really does tell a story. It's perfect! Great job! #963565

Stanley J. Contrades 12/10/2004 12:49:43 AM

Probably some long-time friends comfortable in discussing world events, at least the gentleman is with his 'walking' slippers under the bench! Very nicely executed, Sanjay, and what appears, for them, to be a very traditional way of doing things(?). Great job!!

Leanne M.E. Boyd 12/10/2004 1:01:11 AM

Excellent Sanjay! I ditto all the above! #963587

Donald K. Cherry level-classic 12/10/2004 2:08:48 AM

Great shot, Sanjay! I love how the umbrellas partially obscure their faces!

My "checkered" shot is in the contest now...I just uploaded it last night to see how it was going to look. I hope you will go back and comment on it! I'm going to write you when I get to work..but until then..keep your chin up and as you always tell me...."relax"! #963631

Allan L. Whitehead 12/10/2004 2:09:56 AM

Wonderful presentation, Sanjay, obviosly they are discussing the merits of Digital over Film, eh… Very well done, my dear friend - your good friend, Allan #963633

Claudia Kuhn level-classic 12/10/2004 4:39:12 AM

What a great find! I, too, think we'll see this again, love the whole comp and umbrellas. #963913

Marcie A. Fowler 12/10/2004 5:12:10 AM

They are probably saying "do you see that guy with the camera . . . do you think he's taking our picture . . . why is he taking our picture??? (LOL)!! Fantastic capture here Sanjay. You captured so many different elements so very well. Leaves the interpretation of the image open to the viewer. Fantastic job! #963995

Excellent story captured, Sanjay!! Nicely done indeed! #964180

Amy N. Cappelli level-classic 12/10/2004 7:27:34 AM

Love it! so many ways to look at it. at first it looked like she was trying to trade umbrellas with him. but the body language did speak of two who were more familiar. then when looking longer at it, it seemed at if she was trying to convince him to come home. what ever is happening between the two of them, whoever they are- the scene is thought provoking and that is what makes this a very powerful image. great work Sanjay! #964357

cj patterson 12/10/2004 7:38:16 AM

kathy wolfe 12/10/2004 9:10:16 AM

I love a photo that I can study...and this is that one. My first thought was..its doesnt look like its raining..why do they have umbrellas? Sanjay, this is phenomenal (is that how you spell it- LOL!). A true true work of art. If this doesnt win, I'm making a phone call ;) ;) #964627

What are they talking about? Are they gossiping? Questions like these crossed my mind while shooting but didn't feel like asking
