"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."

Morten Pedersen from Norway

They obviously like each other. Lovely picture.

Nice title and photo

21 Sep 2011 9:24am

Pedro Alves from Porto, Portugal

Nice! Great expressions in a great b&w!
Although I would have centered the characters, and got rid of that overexposed part in the right side.

21 Sep 2011 9:39am

@Pedro Alves: Thanks for suggestion. I do not like centered subject. Guys in background were sitting on a sun, and I really did not bother about them. Was glad to have this couple in a shadow of a big tree !

Mhelene from Paris, France

Very well together ! Superb portrait !

Sorry I can scroll back over the ones I missed. The computer Iḿ on is going as slow as a tortoise. Nice hard documentary here though.

Stu from From Scotland | Living in 京都 Kyoto, Japan

Ha! Are you sure that's what he's saying? She doesn't look amused! ;-)

21 Sep 2011 12:04pm

@Stu: no, I am not sure ... I think in fact he is saying he is very horny ;)

Laurie from Prescott, United States

Wonderful moment captured, Mariana. I love the way you captured these two in the shade, in their own world which is in total focus, while the rest of the world is glaring and slightly out of of focus. I wonder if that's how their world appears to them. Beautiful characters.

21 Sep 2011 12:04pm

Laurette from Johannesburg - Fourways, South Africa

A wonderful capture with marvelous composition and wonderful contrasting tones . It takes all kinds to make a world and a very intresting world. Well seen and captured.

klausz from Kustein, Austria

in the german language we use a phrase => word to word translation: "to drink somebody beautiful" which means, that the more alcoholics you drink, as more beautiful the lady would be! ;-)
not really a perfect base for a relationship, or?

21 Sep 2011 12:47pm

@klausz: hey, I am coming from ex-Yugoslavia where alcoholism is a big problem, and I would not talk of it . I simply love expression of this drunk woman while guy was whispering some lies in her ear :) thx Klaus ;)

Williams from East LaHave, Nova Scotia, Canada

Tough stuff. I like the composition & the clarity of focus on the couple.

21 Sep 2011 12:48pm

@Williams: thx Paul. Yes, tough stuff but every-day's situation :)

Christian Richer from Le Havre, France

Hey, fellow bikers! The bikers are tender ...

21 Sep 2011 12:50pm

@Christian Richer: bikers ? how did you come to this conclusion?

Leen from Bruges, Belgium

I like the strong contrast here.

21 Sep 2011 1:33pm

Christian Richer from Le Havre, France

I assumed they were bikers because of the Bar and Shield Harley-Davidson on the T-shirt of the man, a general appearance universal among bikers.

21 Sep 2011 2:09pm

Sexappeal is a question of the viewers eye. :-)

21 Sep 2011 2:43pm

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Wonderful and earthy, this love that may appear rough around the edges but is as sweet as any love should be! Nicely caught, Mariana, and I happen to love this framing that uses high key information off to the right to really make this happy beer drinking couple stand out.

21 Sep 2011 2:48pm

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Their expressions,,or HER expression, really captures me too..I agree with Rick, the brightness on the right really helps to retain attention on the subjects here...I love this composition Mariana! Sunshine, a little beer, some hugs and perhaps a bit of's all good ;-)

Phil David Morris 2011 from Saskatoon, Toronto, New York, Canada

And these magic wands these two people hold, have the power to promote love
above all circumstances. I love how you seem to find yourself in these situations,
blending seemlessly enough, to get your astonishing photos.

21 Sep 2011 3:43pm

Andrew from United States

Beautiful shot. They seem close but at the same time she has sort of a distant stare like they is thinking of something else but is still embracing the comfort her partner is giving her.

21 Sep 2011 3:43pm

@Andrew: not distant, but I would say she was thinking ( if possible ) how honest this guy was in his whisperings ;)

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

They have each other, a sunny day, and a beer. Not too bad. It could be much worse. Strong characters accentuated by the light. Excellent image.

21 Sep 2011 3:48pm

El pare from Prepirineu, Andorra

Beer can inspire ingenious phrases. I'm not sure that she has understood the joke.

ordinaryimages from Kentucky Bluegrass, United States

In contrast to the urbanites in the background ; ] best…jf

21 Sep 2011 4:00pm

@ordinaryimages: not really :) picture was taken on Serbian food festival, where were a lot of pigs , drinks, green onion, and I really do not know how these two found a way to this location . They are Canadians ! They probably heard how JELEN , Serbian beer is good ;)

Calusarus from St Sorlin en Valloire, France
