Hello everyone

2 weeks ago my wife Tundi and I had 2 friends visit us in Adelaide, South Australia. They've been married about half a year. They are from Melbourne, Victoria. We had some great times together with them: various walks, good talks, etc.

Unfortunately the week they were here wasn't typical splendid sunny, balmy autumn weather... but it was quite windy and overcast (cloudy) - even with some rain!

This was one of the photos that in my opinion summed up their stay with us, both because of the weather / landscape as well as their obvious affection for each other.

I'm posting it here to have your comments / suggestions / feedback.

After all... it's both a "landscape" and a "people photo". Photo taken just after sunset, at West Beach, Adelaide, using my Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10mm on my Canon 350D.

Thanks for looking, and I look forward to your replies!

Paul

A lovely sentimental snapshot of their affection for each other, without being a "snapshot", if you get my meaning. I really like it. The color and tone is great.

Maybe clone away the sign in the brush? It's distracting.

I think its a lovely shot, I wish the man was a bit more snuggled in to the woman, but its still a superb shot.

brokenbokeh thanks for looking and your comments... Indeed I did try to think about this photo, hopefully with the non-snapshot outcome. Glad you l like the tone!

bahadir your words are appreciated as ever. The couple also really like this photo, especially after my edit (I needed to do some highlight/shadow etc work to bring out the best).

alex james many thanks for calling this a lovely photo. I'll take that as a very kind compliment. Yes I think those clouds create a lot of appropriate mood in this composition too.

bonjen3 I am grateful for your compliments, and also will take into consideration even less gap between them should I attempt a repeat another time! (I felt they were quite close, but yes, there is a bit of space between their legs & neck)

Thanks and regards all

Paul

Hi Musket

That's EXACTLY the sort of feeling I wanted to convey!

Thanks for capturing and expressing it in words

Hey Paul, that shot rocks. Putting my CC had on for a min I would say that watch the horizon as it is cutting right across the neck line and also I would have gone for a low amount of fill flash to lift your friends. (Isn't hindsight a wonderful thing LOL).

What sort of editing did you use to give the sort of hdr affect?
