The first thing I saw was his long sideburns, NaCha. Are they coming back in style??? grin

Seriously, you did a great job of "catching" them.
Nacha Kama: LoL....I guess.
Thanks Granny!

I bet they don't mind. They have no attention to spare for you and your camera. Very nice street shot!
Nacha Kama: I know Martin....whether I was there or not...i don't think with the mood their in they would have noticed anything but themselves :d
Thanks for stopping by as usual
Good capture, Nacha. I like the naturalness that is seen. They knew of your presence?
Nacha Kama: Hmmm I don't think so...even if they did...like I said ...into themselves...smile
Thanks Anyways

My face became a little bit rose!!
Great shot!
I am longing for taking that picture!
Nacha Kama: I hope you find a cute couple miu*...Am glad the image changed your skin tone L:dL!!!! Thanks for stopping by dear.
Great finish on this photo, nice effects.
Nacha Kama: Thats alot!
Your one dangerous lady, lovely moment shot.

Your processing style has caused a lot of blow outs in the background, these areas actually might now have no color reference, which would really show if say, this pic was printed large. More care has to be taken in this area, especially if the end result of your work will be outputted prints not stored somewhere on a HD.

In summary hon, Skee loves the moment, loves the creativity but questions the processing.
Nacha Kama: Thanks Hon. Thanks for pointers.....
PDA! Lets go to the park, see wkat John legend has caused!
Nacha Kama: LoL!

Great capture, no bother they will never know they were captured - they don't seem to be holding back.

I read what mista skee said - I think he may be right so I will have to remember.
Nacha Kama: Yes very into themselves Louis...smile...I did the same thing you did when you captured the guy taking a Nap wink

great candid shot!
Nacha Kama: Thanks
Skee is right about the printed finish but I do like what you've done here and I love the captured moment and don't worry, no one is going to mind a lovely lady like you taking shots like this, now if it was an old dude like me they'd be yelling for the cops or pulling out an AK smile

Nacha Kama: LoL!! Johnny
You too can get a steal like this...it depends on where you can find thos kind of people and with the kind of camera that you have.....just ZOOM! wink
Thanks anyways

nice shot at the good moment.
