Q: Best All Around Canon Lens

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

This man asked to have a photograph with his wife before she passed away.

I asked him to kiss her on the cheek,
without hesitation he gently kissed her cheek.
And for a moment she looked like she remembered her lover.

I think I caught something special here.
It's been a while.

    With a nice tight crop on just the subjects, this could pass as an Avedon. Well done!

    It's a special sentimental image. Might it not be simplified and made better by cropping off that wall plaque - it draws the eye to the wrong place.

    Wonderful! I think the title and plaque enhance the mood, like she is swept away in the romantic moment and the past... beautiful image and very moving...
