Re: Their eyes met

Intriguing, powerful and very well executed. Is there a story behind the concept?

Re: Their eyes met

That's a lovely shot nicely executed. It was an inspired thought that made you think of shooting it too.

Hi John - there may be story, but it's not anything I made up or are aware of! To be honest, it was a grab shot whilst walking in Covent Garden. I just noticed the glimpse and pressed - a fine testament to the AF capabilities of the E-M5 and the Panasonic 12-35.

Sorry. I made a minor change to the Flickr image (wound down the NR) and it seems by replacing it, the link is lost. Here it is again:

My goodness, that's all the more remarkable and an excellent demonstration of "the decisive moment." It's so good I assumed it was a set up with models. You must have finely honed observational skills and lightening fast reactions. HCB would have been pleased with this!

A magnificent image, among the best of its genre I've seen in years.
