fabulous catch Ray !
Sheila11-Aug-2007 00:15
She looks as if she's very reluctantly allowing her portait shot. Did you sweet talk her?
Great result.

I like it...she has character.
Jeanne Newman10-Aug-2007 19:40
Ah...this is beautiful! Whether, in reality, there was a relationship between the fellow in the background and the beautiful woman in focus, it matters not: you have orchestrated one with this stunning image. Voted
Carole Stevens10-Aug-2007 11:02
She is so beautiful, very serene against that guy in the back, gorgeous contrast Ray!

You've outdone yourself, Ray. Outstanding.
Azlin Ahmad09-Aug-2007 20:43
Great shot, Ray, v
Bruce Little09-Aug-2007 20:41
I like this because it tells a story. A different story in everyone's mind as we really don't know what was going on - only you do, and then only maybe I guess. Despite the fact that she is the subject, he adds so much to the picture.
Steve England09-Aug-2007 20:33
Tremendous image Ray!..brill
Carolyn Rasmussen09-Aug-2007 20:19

I might just have wanted to give the guy in the bg a smack! :))
Roy Birger Nilsen09-Aug-2007 19:43

Nicki Thurgar09-Aug-2007 19:39

Ann LT09-Aug-2007 19:38
The man is smiling at the girl as if ridiculing her.
Kaden Kratzer09-Aug-2007 19:25

Guenter Eh09-Aug-2007 19:17
This is simply fantastic Ray! The totally different expressions of the smiling - almost laughing - man in the bg and the girl in front. Delicate b+w treatment! For me this is the foto of the day!***
