Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-24
Suggester Says "I just thought it was an incredible shot: from the shadows, to the choice of subjects, and the emotion the models were able to portray."
True Kiss by *Karl-Filip ( Suggested by LyssaAtMidnight and Featured by Kaz-D )
:iconunseek:
Firstly I would like to commend you on your juxaposition of ideas in the piece, when I have seen a similar theme or idea there are always very 'young' people featured and the slight imperfections in the skin tone in this piece show how real the emmotion actualy is! Both captured at this moment have left the viewer with an almost tantalising idea to see the lips move together further, this is helped my the angle of the lips and the alinement of the noses. The shadows in this piece are very well done, amazingly good job and keep up the fantastic work!!!

I am not versed enough in photography to give you professional feedback. But on the viewer side I can say that I love this composition. Everything about it breathes intensity. You captured a sense of suspended movement in the pose that begs to be resolved by fulfillment of the kiss. The strong contrast between light and shadow really draws in the eye - I love good black and white photography with its emphasis on illumination and shadow. The textures in the image - the beard,, the tattoo - also add to the interest and provide contrast to the softer lines of skin and muscle.

This image drew my eye as soon as I saw on the page.

This is very beautiful and real! No covering of flaws, just true and passionate love. The way it should be. I also love the way you have everything toned. Great job! Also I love that its not done with younger models. And I am really really curious as it what that says on his arm.

Very beautiful and passionate pic, capturing the moment right before the kiss actually takes place was smart becasue personally i think this moment (at least from the point of the viewer) can look more passionate than the kiss itself (i.e locking lips).
