Great thought behind this for this challenge. Every married couple would agree...at times!

From the Critique Club:

Congratulations on a Yellow Ribbon.

First off a very well balanced image. The sunset has great toning and colors. The 2 subjects are balanced well on the right side of the image drawing the viwers eyes across the sunset to them. The darkness, even though their is a lot of it, is not overpowering. Each aspect of the image goes hand in hand with each other. Overall the image does seem a bit soft to me. But that is totally acceptable. It has a dreaminess quality to it. The only negative comment (and its just a personal thing) is the border. I like the black border on the sunset but it gets lost in the foreground. If their was a way to make the bottom border white allowing for the top to remain black I would have liked the image even more.

Wonderful interpretation here. Beautiful sunset.
03/05/2006 09:01:28 PM
Very well done! 7
03/05/2006 03:49:57 PM
Great idea, well executed. I like the way it's not totally in sillouette, and that you can still see the white of her wings.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2006 04:45:29 PM
Great idea, not sure about the soft painting effect, but still very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/03/2006 08:32:40 AM
I think this would have been better if you were a bit closer and eliminated some of the foreground. The idea is soiled. 7

I'm guessing the darkside's more fun as her halo's starting to bend.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2006 05:25:43 PM
I hear time and again that a beautiful sunset is just that... a sunset, unless there's a subject to focus on. You've captured this sunset beautifully and turned this into a powerful image with a great point of interest. You should be thrilled with your final result... I am... :)10

This is terrific. I hope you don't get hammered for the softness, which I am 100% sure was intentional and which I believe really enhances the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 10:16:03 PM
This is a great idea. Every challenge needs a sunset (or sunrise). The only thing is, it just seems a little softly focused.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/01/2006 07:39:29 PM
Yeah Buddy. Graphicfunk? This is so cool. 10.

03/01/2006 11:34:32 AM
Interesting concept, I really like the romantic nature. I think it could be improved slightly if the two figures were a little larger. Overall very nice.

cute....
02/27/2006 08:27:40 PM
wow I like the concept and the picture a lot. The only thing is the shot has a little to much blur in it for my taste, although looking at this scene would prolly be a little intense in real life. Just a personal opinion though, nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 07:58:04 PM
Very nice idea and creatively shot. I don't like the blurry edges though.

02/27/2006 03:24:57 PM
Very nice sunset. A little of the bad news guy syndrome in the couple. Good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 11:26:28 AM
Lovely photo, superb take on the challenge. My only complaint is that I'd like to see the couple just a little bit bigger. Wonderful colors and composition.

Would have wanted a closer view of the couple, perhaps a vertical crop to make it stand out more.

Pretty cool shot. Had a similar idea but the girl model bailed on me so the shoot never happened. Like this a lot, enough to give it an 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/27/2006 02:17:11 AM
oh, CUTE. I like this. The romantic couple watching the sunset. Hee hee. Great picture, even better laugh. :)

With all that reddish/orange looks like the date locale is hell. :) Great entry.
