Well done! Extraordinary! You have captured a very compelling image! Provocative. Somber. Weighty. Tender. Disparate indeed! “The whole is other than the sum of its parts.” – Koffka Reply ↓

A perfect quote – it really captures the essence of this photograph. And of course your descriptive comments really describe this image so well. Thank You
A compelling shot, Mark. Haunting eyes!
Thank you Paula. I find myself drawn to the other person just as much but I do agree very haunting eyes. Have a good day.
I’m very glad you do :). Thanks for stopping by
A human portrait, genius work Mark, your work is matchless, an inspiration to aspiring photographers, me, Wow!!
Arjun this is a comment I will never forget and inspires me so much so I thank you with all my heart.
The picture and title strung many a chords…I admire your work, Mark. Bravo!!
An intense portrait!
I think so too, it is one of my favourites so glad you liked it.
that is striking 🙂
Thanks Joshi. Always so nice to hear from you.
Agree with all others — a very powerful photograph Mark.
Thank you so very much Uday! I’m always so critical of what I post so to get your feedback means a lot. Take care
Wow Mark! Did the guy on the left pose or was he just coincidentally looking your way? The photo is compelling and beautifully done.
Hi Tina. He was fully aware so I was able to get great eye contact. For me I really like the contrast with the other guy who is not making eye contact. The two balance each other nicely for me. Have a great night.
Another wonderfully intriguing image, Mark. The magic of this portrait is that I feel like I am part of the scene yet an observer at the same time. Drawn in, then I step back. Excellent work.
I love your observation of this image. Thank you so much for commenting it’s always great to hear your thoughts.
Quite a captivating and compelling image. The sorrow expression on both of them brings out a special message. I really like the tight composition and the dark tones in the photo. Great work!
Thank you so much Otto, I’m really glad you liked this particular one as I feel it is one of my better images. Have a great day 🙂
Such a beautifully balanced shot Mark and so full of tenderness . . .
Hi Patti, I always love to hear what others feel so I thank you for this. I never really thought of tenderness to describe this image but it certainly is there so thank you for a different perspective.
Reminds me of Halloween, but it’s probably not.
You are correct, nothing to do with Halloween. This was taken during Toronto’s Gay Pride event. The eye’s and aura around these guys caught my attention, for me I just knew it would make for acompelling image. Thanks for stopping by to comment 🙂
Everything I love about candid photography, you’ve captured so much in this shot, wonderful !
I can’t express how much you have made my day with such wonderful and heartfelt comments. Inspiration comes from many places and such generous words really help me to continue on with my street work.
I wish I had the confidence to attempt this sort of work, my own photography is small scale and domestic but your images are full of life and that is inspirational in itself!
I’m trying to build more and more confidence as I go it’s always a little frightening doing street work although people are usually more than ok with it I find and you end up meeting interesting people.
I suppose you just have to get started and not worry about it! I think a lot of people must be flattered to be photographed, I’m determined to try it – you’ve inspired me!
Excellent!! When you challenge yourself great things can happen.
