- I fell in love with this image for reasons that, for whatever reason, makes me reluctant to attempt description. Sometimes an image can strike us with such a guttural force that telling someone why you like it feels more like counseling or an interrogation than inquisitiveness. Nonetheless I can say that the light in this image is not only rich and inviting but that spot of flare provides an artistic expression that borders on symbolism. Beyond that, the composition is relevant to the scene and the subjects share a beautiful moment as they are bathed in the beauty surrounding them. And that’s pretty much all I want to say for this “session."
