- Love the emotion. The faces have incredible power. Such feeling.
- There’s a lot of feeling in this image. I always enjoy seeing how the camera can transform the subtle to an extreme - a whisper into a yell. Yet, it’s always done the same way, through good light, composition, lens choice and the anticipation and sensitivity to know when to press the shutter.
- A tender exchange between the pair captures the sincerity of the moment in this scene.
