Description

Taken after sunset at Lake Dora - I startled this pair near the shoreline. No chance of getting a crisp silhouette in the shadows… it was a throwaway shot, but I liked certain qualities about it. I sharpened up their moving silhouettes, used BuZZ simplifier 2, and increased the saturation to create a new image! :o)
