    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!

    Great capture of a very romantic gesture.

    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.

    Love this!
