Like a still from an old film. Beautiful. The fact that she's smoking is a touch of class!

The mood is fantastic and I like the bright light in the distance and darkness in the foreground, yet still being able to see her expression. Great shot.
Bob Towery on 22.12.2009 @ 23:38
Great mood in this shot, and there are so many interesting elements. Love the bulky/stocky building. Like that the guy is a silhouette. The light coming through the umbrella is super nice too. What a scene you captured!
elaine on 23.12.2009 @ 04:58

Great capture of a very romantic gesture.
mooch on 05.01.2010 @ 18:14
I really like this. Very candid and has a great feeling of reportage. Gritty and extremely unique shot Faisal. The light bounicing off the architecture, the womans expression. Could be a film still.
Shamanah on 07.01.2010 @ 14:00
