Love Story


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

trilliana from Munich, Germany

your title offers so much options: is she in love with him? or with cows? and is he in love with her or with elvis? are they mother and sun (that's my guess although it's a bit lame). wonderful double portrait with much expression.

14 Aug 2010 8:34am

@trilliana: trust me with this title I did not mean anything but Love between Man and Woman :)) NO Mother and son, no way ;))

They are made for each other...very odd couple but cute at the same time :) Love is blind and sometimes you start looking as silly as your spouse after awhile :) Great framing and processing...

jeanclaude from st mande 94160, France

excellent portrait 5 stars

14 Aug 2010 6:30pm

@jeanclaude: wow... so nice to hear from you again . many thx :)

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

Your processing makes the couple pop off of the screen. Part of what I love most about this photograph is that they don't look like a likely couple. What draws people together will forever remain a mystery (and that is as it should be).

14 Aug 2010 6:37pm

Becky from los angeles, United States

OH! How wonderful! These two are amazing. He with his shirt and she with her hat and glasses -

The best title to suggest a story of happyness...
