Special thanks to Dana and Brady for letting me take their picture on a freezing cold evening.

"Becoming a Grover"-- This photo has a special history. It is set on Rainbow Bridge which crosses Wolfe Creek on Lower Campus.
Explanations of this tradition vary, but it is generally understood that when a freshman, female student is kissed by an upperclassman male student on Rainbow Bridge, which links Upper and Lower Campuses, she becomes an official Grover. "Grover" is also the generic term for a Grove City College student.

Congratulations on top ten GS. I am pleased this one isn't a silhouette or else the beautiful expressions would have been lost. I like it just as it is.

I like the way the bridge and the railings lead the viewer to the couple. The concept here is clever. Something doesn't feel right. I think it's the lighting. Kind of like you were a little late for the last light of day, or too early to get a good full silhouette. I hope I'm describing my thoughts on this in an understandable manner...if not, I apologize for being long-winded. ;^)

Good luck in the challenge.

pretty silhouette!

Great pose! The lighting needs to go one way or the other, either more detail or just a silhouette.

I like the composition (even if it is a little clichéd), but the branches intruding on the silhouetted couple are quite distracting.

Classic and beautiful

Nicely composed shot. The one tree is just enough to keep it from being too symmetrical.

I like this one...just the right amount of illumination and detail to catch the expressions and mood.

Although silhouettes, I can see that they're smiling. 8

Nice idea, couple, and bridge. Tighter crop would be better, and tree branch intersecting head is unfortunate. Moving the couple and camera angle into clear sky would be better, not centered on bridge would still be fine.

Lovely concept, but does appear very centred. Cropping to thirds may have assisted in creating a little more interest in the picture.

Captures the theme nicely.

catchy title...good framing!

I like this, could have played with the leves/curves a bit to get the couple in full sillouette.
