Well I think it was then my best from year 2004 since it is my highest voting ever.

About comments. Thanks for them all... but:

The purse is an important object in that photo in my opinion. So comment about I should have excluded the purse are not helpful at all!

I can perhaps agree with comments about the frame but I don't think that matters at all

Perhaps I should have hada another title on it

I didn't know them and they didn't notice me so I couldn't let them do anything

It is sunset/sunrise at midnight in Iceland but not the moon as dartompkins said

There is no other version in different colors and the sky was in this color in reality that evening

And finally. It is just a point and shoot photo since I was on my inline skates during that evening and happened to have my little camerea with me.

Edit out the purse, and you have perfection. It kinda takes away from the moonlight stroll feeling. Great silhouette. Nice detail and color.

This should be a postcard! Very nice!

I recognize this photo, Loved it then, love it now, but as I remember the other version had a different tonality (more cyan /blue) and a different frame...honestly. I prefer the earlier version

Afraid they don't look in love enough with each other or the amazing view. Apart from that great shot.

My favorite kind of image is one that clearly tells me a story. This one captures that. YOu can see the interest between the couple. The low sun just serves to accent their interaction- it's not dominating the shot. 8

Nicely timed and composed photograph, with good detail and not over-saturated. ((8))

Very romantic image, spoilt a little bu the presence of the womans handbag, but still this is a very pleasing image (however cliched :P). 8.

That is one impressive sky. Very nice.

A beautiful image, wonder if it would improve it by cropping a little more of the left?
Still a very well taken shot, good luck.

I love the sunset - something about her holding a purse takes away from the moment. Where in the world can you see a sunset like that at midnight? :-) 6

nice but seen it so many times which ruins it a little -can't be helped.

Having them kissing however would be pretty beneficial I feel. Not sure if that was possible..
