My models accepted to pose in fron of the window, but asked me for a watery background. Very easy as I have recently shot some 200 shots of the spillway.

Then, I cloned out the window and left naked them and nature. Which one?

Paula, I definitely like the version with the windows better- partially because they are more silhouetted here than in the second version. The darkness adds a sense of quiet solitude for the couple as they enjoy the scene before them.

I'd vote for the window-version, too. The light and skin-colours look more like 'inside' and you did such a nice work with the reflections...

Another vote for the inside version. The composite works well.

Amar, Andrea, Colin, Fabio

Thanks lots. I, too, am more for the windowed version, gives more the sense of the inside outside, and they wee at the window when I shot.

Very good composition & creation. The window makes the figures look more beautiful. I vote with the majority.

The first one definately. Because their dark bodys are well balanced against the bright outside (as a person would see standing behind them). The windows also give a sense of depth. Excellent execution.

The window version makes it, I like very much the left illuminated side in contrast with the dynamic water, very nice artwork Paula, regards

Cherlyn, A.K., Jay ( see? I listen to you;-), Ferrando, Chips, Adolfo
Thanks lots. It seems my frist choice was the right one; keeping the window frame does give the picture a different balance and depth. Thanks again. Grateful.

Definitely 1st version wins. Excellent work.

Wow. This is a piece (peace ?) for mind. An impossible picture, the description of true, naked love ? Or real human nature ?

That is not for me to answer, but I appreciate a lot.

Alec, thanks.

Spencer, I adore waterfall, would place one inside my room if I could. Was so glad whrn the models asked for a water background. Thank you lots.
