At a cafe in Split, Croatia

I am having so much fun with this whisper, dreamy, hazy effect that I had to use it to enhance this photo of this intriguing couple I took last year while on vacation in Croatia. This couple was sitting near us at an outdoor cafe in Split and I was so captured by them that I surreptitiously got off a few shots (shame on me). She had on a wedding ring but it certainly didn't seem that they were married to each other given the body language and all. He's leaning in and very interested. She's smoking and somewhat aloof although also interested. Where's it going....?


Check out my other photo for the Day 16 challenge on my blog:

    Nice work!
  • Carol 3y

    It's very romantic, and also a little mysterious. Her eyes sort of draw you in.

    Its nice to see the "Whisper" technique applied to this kind of photo. One of my favourites in the group...

    Great choice for the term "whisper" -- a dreamy image with the air of secrecy. Lovely work. (Seen on the Beyond Layers Day 16 page.)
