Haven't posted for a long time.

A lot of things have happen since I last post.

Some bad, some great news.

Anyway... I took this shot while I was in NY. I was just going to take the shots of the time square and after a few frames, I notice this couple walking (one from left and one from right) and stop right in the middle (not a step more or less) and start kissing. I fire off 2 frames before they walk away!

Just being at the right time at the right place really.

some post processing to bring out more details on the couple.

Taken with old Minolta 7.5mm f4 Rokkor lens on 7D, handheld.

Hope you will like it.

A great use of a fisheye lens, giving the feeling everything is turning around them. The movement of other poeple is great too here, they going by, as only this beautiful love stay.

really great



no doubt you have made the most out of the situation
great work

yeah, awesome fish-eye view making everything turn around the couple in the middle - really perfect timing! :-)
everybody else is moving while they and their world around them stopped for a split-second.
excellent sharpness, wonderful colors and well-handled exposure. superb job & best wishes, thor.

very nice colours and fire between two lovers
thanks for sharing

this is a great shot... perfect timing

Very good idea and solution. Great picture. Original, beautiful... perfect.

Outstanding shot! This is "poster" kind of good!

Composition is superb, central placement of the kissing couple and the hub of Times Square works perfectly with the wide-angle curvature, the metering and the saturation are spot-on.

Great shot - inspiring!
