I thought I would download this but it might be a few days before I do another.

I have a painful elbow so will be giving my computer a rest for a little while.

Nothing serious, just hurts.

Beautiful back lighting, John, a fine capture. Good idea to give the pc a rest, hope it helps and that the pain eases soon. Carol

Intriguing light, I'm trying to work it out. Strong backlighting and light on the faces as well, but not on that arm...

nice caught John, but it seems you have to be more careful to dodge those shade area.
but overall this is a special image!!

Beautiful light, super capture.

I know about sore elbows and wrists! I stopped using a mouse and went over to a Logitech trackball - so much easier to use - at least I think so.



Love the backlight. I love the girl on the left. I might even crop her out and make a portrait pic just of her. ........Sandy


My right shoulder plays up as well sometimes, I just switch the mouse to left-handed!



Terrific light here - hope the pain soon eases SmileSmile


The backlighting adds a sense of warmth whilst add the same time adding a quite suspense.

Regards Nathan

Keep your elbow out of harms way....

Knowing you I am sure you were not aiming to dodge the shade area but more so looking at the light and I think you have achieved your goals as always with this superb picture


A lovely light indeed

You've created an image full of mistery and promise!! Love the light in it. Take care and rest that arm. I suffered for a few months having used the mouse too much for a while and know rest is the only real answer.

A beautifully lit image and the content really tells a story: why are they looking a little worried, why are they looking in these different directions? I think it is an excellent photograph for all sorts of reasons.
Thank you.
PS get better soon so that we can enjoy more of your wonderful work!


A crop of one from last year? i seem to remember that back light.

Very well taken and love the light. This is a special shot and the mood is fantastic. The ability to tell a story like this with one click, Unreal.
I think she spotted you too.
