Well, you've given my wife a good laugh with your randy comments about a visual double entendre, but we should remember our age, and years of wisdom, and artistic dedication, fellas.

So here is a stately capture of two sweethearts kissing before moving away:

absolutly lovely capture you have ventured out of your comfort zone and presented a minimalist and in color allagory for mankinds more tender moments being played off against the teaming steamy city and envirns. The depth and imagination here are mind boggling brilliant camera work and post processing have preserved every nuance every detail every gesture of this universal embrace

Lion, at least.

I like it. She has elegant disdain....probably for his youthful vigor as much as the mane.

I worked ten years in Harvared square and every afternoon after work I would go play chess get to know the charactors and show up with my camera. Being one of the players really helped with being accepted with the camera and I must have about a billion shots of the chess players charactors hangers on and other harvard square regulars from the "pit" in front of the subway entrance to the "pain" where the chess players are. Your image is nice and very similar to many I took.

As both kings are off the board I am guessing chess lesson.\

very nice, gianluca, a simple but suggestive exploit of the sign.

i almost wish the shadowed head were back a tiny bit to the left--he seems to be favoring one of the opposed sides behind him this way. and perhaps the very-centered composition is more simple than it had to be to make the picture?

Re: one more foreground
In reply to solveproblems, Apr 21, 2013

i think it really very nearly almost works. i do like the sense of detail, and i tend to appreciate less punchy bw conversions generally (not exclusively--i do love a nice coal-black neopan sort of look for some pictures). but the balance can be delicate. that's one of the nice things about shooting tri-x--it just delivers that long reach into the shadows without looking unnatural.

anyway, don't give up on this direction--just work to tweak it so it comes across as a bit more natural, maybe.

And you also saw a sinuous river of concentrated faces that I'd overlooked for years.  Sal, you have an eye, a penetrating eye of an alert and disciplined artist.

Honestly, I am afraid (but not sure!) that the disdain was related to the presence of me and 3 my colleagues, all of them not Japanese. This happens sometimes.

Well, Frank....thank you. I wish you were right! If I've improved it is thanks to your help and others on spx, and the constructive criticism generously given here. Sometimes I'm lucky - and too often it is, really, just a quick accident of timing and luck.

The big thing is that we all love what we are doing, and we love sharing our photos.

A charming composition, but the post is a problem.  You might bring it down or something.

Japanese textiles are exquisite.  They're patterns are a joy to behold.
