Q: What is the difference between macro lense and macro extension tube

A: Do you know?

While I chose two female models for this photo, it is less about sexuality and more about the couple. I purposely shot this photo the way I did so that viewers could see come to their own conclusions about it. Some people see the figure on the right as turning towards the one on the left, while others view it as turning away. While I made a specific choice while shooting, I leave it to the viewer to decide what direction they see.

    I don't think it matters whether the figure is turning toward its partner or away, the vagueness suggests unrest, and a stage of transition in the relationship. There is a disconnect between the figures, which evokes an emotional response to the photo.

    I love the emotional aspect of this photo through the girls' eyes as she watches her partner toss in her sleep. Then I further read your description and loved it even more... it's great that you have left the mystery of perspective to others who are viewing this photo! fantastic
