Two lovers sworn to marry steal a kiss over afternoon tea......first love is such an amazing feeling, where every touch is sets your senses on fire.

I was reaching for the tones in this image, pushing them, whilst keeping my detail ion the blacks. I didn't want it to have an over cooked look, just deep gentle tones to give that feeling of a warm summers day.

Very cinematic and technically excellent! Could be a frame from James Ivory's "HOWARDS END."

It isn't staged btw, it is a composite. Saw the young couple at Critch and asked them to kiss, luckily they was dating or it might have been awkward, bless em. When they kissed I was like wow, made me blush.

Nice, looks like a film set, like it a lot,very well done
I couldn't tell it was a composite initially but then thought why would the couple be kissing in a tea room, but as I have found out many times - it's always the feet Smile
