Re: Couple from London last week

I'm always interested to view other street photographer's work, you've achieved good eye contact here, and the second shows empathy with your subject I believe.
Do you say anything to your subjects, or are you like me and move on quickly? My view on life is simple, the picture is on the card, any communication isn't going to make the picture better, so off I trot. If I'm unnoticed, I'll work the subject as much as possible.

Re: Couple from London last week

Sorry to learn about your wife, Peter, I know how that is and how photography/painting works wonders.

The portraits are good, I like #1 better, the eyes have it.

You left your masterpiece to last, WOW what a shot, that MOON! and love the PP.

Three excellent pictures and a positive way to deal with a sad occasion, I hope this marks a turning point for you as you struggle to get on with your life, with better days ahead.

Three nice shots Peter but my favourite is the last one. It's got lovely colours under the moonlight. All the best wishes for the future.

I agree with many of the others who have commented.
Great pics, colours in #3 are superb. Did you add the moon in post ?

Good to see you out again, what an inspiring way to celebrate such a sad occasion. Enjoyed all three, but the third is a little special.
