Something looks weird about this, like the people are not in the same photo as the background.

I would like to be able to see the side of his face a little better and see her face a little better. Maybe if you had been standing to the right just a bit. Good capture though

That's sweet. I'm guessing from the hand position he just took the flowers out from behind his back, and she appears happily surprised. Nice candid.

I don't like the processing. This is such a real moment and you made it unreal.

Call me Mr Extremely picky, but I'd like to see more of the reaction on her face, but unfortunately the bouquet slightly obscures it. Not your fault though :-)

I cannot vote so will just comment. I personally do not like how the background was blurred because it made the subjects look superimposed. Sublety is the key for me. Other than that, this composition is really good. Good luck on your scores.

This is such a cute idea. I like the way his arm is behind his back. I would've liked it even more if the flowers weren't hiding part of her face. Good luck in the challenge!

no way!!! You caught THAT! I'll bet you were grinning from ear to ear. It's got it all - very candid, a story we can all see at once, and very nicely processed. the strongest I've seen so far. 9 for now.

this is one of the few really candid and interesting moments I have seen so far in the challenge; pity her face is partially covered by the flowers, but I guess you didn't have much coiche than shooting from where you were

Nice picture but the work you did does not convince me. I'm sure you work alot on it but it looks like its fake.

This would be better if the flowers were not covering her face.

Staged or genuine???? Regardless of which this has been very well executed. Good shot

Nice capture - Love the colours and expressions - Seems something weird is going on around their feet though? Is there some PP going on down there? The bench and feet can't all be sharp and then the floor really out of focus?
