Weekly Photo Contest: Feb 4 - Feb 11 (Theme: Romance)
Welcome to this weeks photo thread!
We're coming up on Valentine's Day, so it seems to be an appropriate theme for this week's contest.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
1. You may only submit one photo per contest.
2. Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
3. The contest runs for exactly one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread)
4. At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible. (Judge has 24 hours to make decision)
5. The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme)
* To see all of our past contests please see the sticky thread here *

Submissions are now closed. Not a large group of shots this time around, but my quick look through shows a pretty high quality in all the submissions, so it will not be an easy job judging. Since I'm going to be out tomorrow night, and out later, I'll get to it right after this post!

And here we go!
Well done on the framing and leading lines to the couple. I only wish they were a little closer. And... that there wasn't a telephone pole growing out of one of the heads... But maybe that's what the other person finds attractive.
Old love is some of the best love. This is the kind of image that really brings out what love and romance is and how it survives over the years. It's simple and expresses the feeling very well.
Now we have the opposite of old love with a very young couple. As I look at them I want to know more - what are they looking at? The building they're coming out of is dark - what is inside? As far as the quality of the photo, it also falls on the "snapshot" side, though it is more in the street photography category as well.
So now I must come to the winners. Once again it is tough picking. I'm looking for the images that speak to me the most.
First the almost-there's...
And the winner, which has such a strong feel that I just keep going back to it.

Now I have to figure out a theme.
(To answer the criticism: I don't 'retouch' permanent parts of people. Doing so removes the entire purpose of putting a human being in front of the camera. In fact, I rarely even retouch the transient parts.)

Congrats on the win Mustang_dvs and great job on judging keleko. I was unable to find something to enter on this weeks theme. But I am all ready to see what the next theme is.

Keleko -- thanks for the feedback and an excellent job of judging. When I saw this couple at the nursing home, I thought they had been married forever. I found out later that they were both widowed and found each other at the nursing home. This was very much new love.
