Hi Eleu,
On the one hand, having a birthday on the same day as Valentines,means it would be a hard date to forget,on the other,you have to share two celebrations on the same day & perhaps you miss out a little bit:-) Regardless, Happy Birthday Eleu,have a great day.
I like this image due to its clarity & sharp details,also you managed to capture them with very little glare on their shells.How long did you have to wait for it to smile for the camera?

Well done for this original interpretation of Valentine's Day.
Have a Happy Holiday.

Hi Eleu!
Happy Birthday my friend!
Excellent capture of a tender scene. The sharpness is perfect. Beautiful soft light and nice reflections.
Only one small thing...I would have decentralized th subject...in my opinion, of course :)
However a very pleasant composition.
Ciao! Vanda
I hope you had a lovely Valentine's day :)
