Friends sharing a moment,I like the PP work you used MB,it resembles so much the artistic image that had been hand painted in another era in photography.Great softness with the textures & colors.
Best Wishes

Hello Jose

An original composition here. I bet a B/W conversion with the flowers in color might look nice also. very good work

nice and moody
good still
a remember


I love this !
The atmosphere, the movement of the heads, this moment everything is important here.
The use of light makes me dive into deep memories, it's beautiful.
A picture is worth a thousand words, this picture speaks by itself, and I say too many words.

Hello Jose,

Seductive image on edge, just touching the eyes a secret garden of beautiful silhouettes.
The light is a nice flat with finesse, lovely composition.
My compliments to the original presentation.
Kind regards.


Dear Jose
there is something very soft and pure in your photo. kind of fascinating atmosphere created by the white mist. two nymphs in a mysterious pose. an original perspective of two girls on a bench.

Wonderful work of art Jose. Such a beautiful shot with such softness and lovely color and composition. Well done! TFS, Lori

Bonjour Jose
Très belle composition!La douceur des couleurs et de la lumière m'évoque le style de David Hamilton.J'aime aussi la teinte froide des couleurs qui accentue l'effet adouci de l'image.

Hi Jose
This is a superb work of photographic art. The effectiveness of the colour tones and the flowers in the girls' hair is fantastic. I like how you've make the background a simple white backdrop and the wooden bench foreground all blends together so well.

Hi Jose...this is excellent..nice soft focus and tones...this story tells it's own story...nice work.


Protection,envie,nuances et rêveries....
Que du beau Jose...
Bravo !!

Hello Jose,

You're capturing well these nymphs by a good composition and light color tone, so it's impressive to see this tasteful tone and good color balance. It's impressive in the contrast of white and green for the coat which they have put on. And, a wooden fence at lower side that it is horizontally draws out a good effect for the whole.
Professional work with high quality!


Hi Jose! Beautiful, very good work. Regards Csabi

Hi Jose
Very artistic shot with your special post processing!
Love reducing details edit and diffused glow lighting!
Great flowers collection attached to their hair!
Thank you
