Re: ... total infatuation ...

I can't help seeing romance in harmony. Even I don't know exactly what happens on background, graphic silhuett has interesting form and works well, jouni

I really like this. I think that small bit of the hand makes a huge difference.

It does, but the background figures are what really makes this a strong composition.

(Obviously in street photography you can't tell people where to stand (as a movie director can), so one has to practise "composition by selection" -- picking the best from a number of shots. The art is in the selection.)

You make some realy good points in your comments...

These are the other two of four I had to choose from... the first one she looks so good but he is facing the other way and there is only the back of his head plus it is far to close to the edge of frame... I do shoot with how I want the final shot to look like so hopefully only minimal cropping....

The second one better framed but he is still facing the wrong way... I do like using the rule of thirds so this one would never have been suitable to crop...

This is the finished product... the things I like is the possion in frame,,, subject to frame size and the fact we can now see his profile and by luck his forehead is highlighted by the dark post or tree,,, not sure what it was...

The top two still have that element of infatuation,,, the fourth not shown was too far away and was never in the race... I hadn't realised that subconsciously when shooting I have the final product in my minds eye...

These were taken in central Moscow a few weeks ago,,, just after lunch,,, I"m guessing that these two have spent lunch together and now saying goodby and back to the office/work..

The rest is now history...

Thanks for your comments...

Molly...
