Thanks John-

This shot turned out better then I expected. :D
The lighting in the shot is two very bright recessed cans. I took paper towles and wegded them in to block out 75% of the light.
I did not use a flash. I tried but ended up with reflections off the glass and the wine bottle. I found that setting the ISO higher and the shutter speed slower I was abla to get more in focus and a warm feel. the candle was a last minut idea because the shot was still kind of dark. all in all I took this shot about 25 times to get it right :? 8)

8) 8) Nick 8) 8)

Welcome, Photoj!

Is your entry a candid photo, or did you plan the scenario and had the pair pose for you?

Candid. I took my D40 out with a Lowepro Slingshot bag, not really planning on shooting anything. What made it worse on the day was I forgot my 18-55mm kit lens, so I had to make do with the 55-200mm VR. Fortunately I didn't do any serious photography that day or miss too much; it rained later on.

Well remember these themes are all open to interpretation - maybe Love doesn't have to always be a traditionally romantic image...
