This is definitely one of my favorite photos ever! I feel so lucky to have captured such a precious moment on film.
This couple demonstrated the type of love that we all dream about. To them, there was not another person in the world that existed, other than them.
I found this moment to be so beautiful, and I wish that I knew who they were because it would bring me such joy to send them a copy of this photo.
Location: Lake Erie – Edgewater Park, Ohio
Camera: Panasonic Lumix FZ-28

    your use of SC really gives this impact

  • When I first opened the photo up in Photoshop, I honestly had no intention of doing selective coloring. But, the more I looked at it, it just started to scream SELECTIVE COLORING at me…. lol

    sc works here, great image, love it

  • Thank you very much :-) If it weren’t for her red pants, I may not have chosen to go the SC route. So here is a big “thanks” to her red pants for the inspiration :-)

    That IS a great moment to capture! :D Well done!

  • I agree Donna! Although, I will admit that I felt a bit awkward taking the photo. There were plenty of people between me and that couple, and when these people saw me aiming the camera in their direction, they looked at me in a strange way. I stuck it out though, because what I was witnessing was a very special moment. I hoped and prayed that I could capture it perfectly, and that my camera settings were correct.
    Now I only wish that I knew who this couple was because it would bring me SO much pleasure to give them a copy :-)
