The Game of Love
by Brittney Renee W.

Sitting on the sidelines,
just warming up the bench.
Wondering if I'll have a chance,
to play in the game of love.
I'v been up to bat a couple of times-
scared silly, I just struck out.
I'm told that, to get in the game of love,
you have to play by the rules.
With spirits sagging lower
than my batting average,
I haven't got much chance to win.
But, as Coach Cupid says,
it's only the third inning,
and there'll be other games.

Hello Horia,

Here comes the master shot of the day :)
Hopefully, you didn't disturb them while playing them this 'Game of Love' :D

You captured the details very well, where the sharpness and POV are well done. The colors are natural and the powerful blurry BG gives superb contrast to this busy pair ;)

A wonderful macro shot!

Best greetings,
