    I think maybe a faster shutter or stopping down with the fill flash may have darkened the background and kept the subjects well lit. Almost there....still a lovely natural shot.

    I thought this would rank higher. In my TT. Beautiful smile and a vey attractive couple. I do not do "people" well and am envious of those who can capture emotions such as you and Anthony Comyn.

    I am a sucker for a photo with a happy dog. These two pals seem to be really close friends. In my favs.

    Really nice natural grouping that fits thte theme well. Did you have to say "cheese" to get the dog smiling? LOL

    Beautiful smile from both. Posed for sure but I don't care. Well done.

    Thanks for the comments.

ysal - Many thanks.
aoc - You could be right.
cookiejar & Jade - An explanation:
We were just leaving their place after a wonderful lunch and I asked Angela if I could have a shot of her with her puppy (Scotch) for the challenge. We were pressed for time as she had a student coming over (Angela is a voice coach). The top step was not ideal but it did give a good shooting angle. I used a fill flash to compensate for the glaring sun. No need for a lot of posing instructions; Anglea is one of those people who always radiates happiness. She decided to give Scotch a hug and I was lucky enough to capture that moment. And Jade, you are perceptive, the background - although not ideal, will anchor this photo at their current home at a very special time for Angela and her husband.

    Set up which is obvious and the topic said it shouldn't be. That said, the two subjects really are wonderful subjects and very camera friendly. Otherwise nice colour matching, and an overall warm glow, just bordering on being overexposed. I would prefer to see one background, the sky and trees or the brick wall, filling the background frame, but not both, yet somehow, for reasons I can't explain, the split background I feel adds something essential here, maybe a sense of spontaneity to an otherwise posed shot; makes me think you didn't set this up so much as say, Hey look here, head's together, click!

    A lovely portrait of a young lady and her friend! Good interpretation of the theme. In my TT.

    Very nice double portrait, though I think that a closer crop on the two faces would show the color similarities better.

    Nice colour matching with the hair. Good light gleaming in their eyes gives a feeling of liveliness .It is a shame you couldn't find a simpler background.
