Good morning...
Thank you to Rob (bobsblues) for his UA for my rainbow...it was a mixed bag of choices from you all between the three versions yesterday.
As mentioned I was going through my hard drive this week and found this candid from St Petersburg in Russia from our trip in July. It is a totally new genre for me and one I am not comfortable with as yet,
have a nice Sunday

For all the UK cricket fans...my hubby says ....Australia won by 380 runs....Better luck in AdelaideWink

I have uploaded a second image for John (lifesnapper) and Andrew (ChiliMan)
V3 ...a black and white conversion request from Ian (Franko59)

It's true, there is a photograph to be taken wherever you point a camera, sometimes you catch an image that would never come out right if it was posed, this is one of those, natural and unexpected. Nice work.

Thanks for V2, Colleen. Such a different dynamic. I like the bear hug she's giving him there. Look at his hands...she's obviously squeezing the air out of him Grin

I like the onlooker at the back too. At first I couldn't decide whether she was looking at you or the couple...then I remembered how you took the shots...so she probably hadn't noticed you Smile

I have had another look and I quite like the mono version. I take your word that it is a loving stare, but if that is the case she looks VERY demanding!Tongue
On a more serious note, the more I look at the image the more I like it. As that stare could be interpreted in so many different ways as reading through all the different comments show. Fascinating!Wink
