This is a great candid capture (although I just can't see how you (almost) pulled it off (I mean did you in fact stage this?)

But for me it doesn't quite work, brilliant idea though it is but the girls eye is not with the geezer in front, it appears to be on you (or that's how I read it) and that sort of breaks the code here. The idea is great the look works but its the wrong one!

Cheers

Robert

Hi Robert,
The look I meant was the one directed towards the camera or me. This was a shot taken almost at random, trying to catch passers by as I was walking along, sometimes from hip level, William Klien stylee, sometimes not. So it was a happy accident, but one I pressed the shutter at the right time to catch Wink.
It's that flicker of a look we give each other when sizing each other up, or at least it looks enough like that to me. That was my take on it anyway.
Thanks Shaks, glad you like it, and thanks image 123

Hi Jon No thats cool and I love the fact that you were walking around just capturing 'the glance' - so its exactly as you intended - and I am afraid I can't give you a click cause you already had it!

Cheers

Robert
