    Thanks so much Yuki, sorry I missed your comment. My trustworthy Lx5 isn't that trustworthy anymore, so I'm less a panny user these days.

    Congratulations Dov, this is very well deserved win. Your B&W people images are always amazing.

    Thank you all so much for your heartwarming comments, and for the honour of 1st place. This was taken in a small gypsy village in Transylvania, Romania. We met this family, and took some photos, but many of them felt posed and unnatural. We left them as the sun was going down (the source of the beautiful light), and I changed to a zoom lens to get a shot of something else/ I turned back and saw them sitting together relaxing, I ran a few steps back, got on one knee and took this without them being aware of it. Thanks again

    Congratulations, Dov, on a great shot. It's your usual great work, but not a subject that I would have connected with you. Tell us the story. Best wishes. Bill

    I knew this was the winner as soon as I viewed it. My number one! Now you need to tell us where it is.

Worthy of Nat Geo.

    What an apt title for your photo. You've captured the moment beautifully, and your choice of B&W is perfect. Absolutely stunning.

    Very nice, great framing and the PP work is well done. Will end up at the top or very close.

    I'm sure you've heard this already, but this is an exceptional photo. Your choice of B&W only adds to its appeal. Good luck. This is so very good.

    I cannot find anything wrong with this. It is a 'view of life shot' that any of us would have loved to capture. Hope you will put the back story in the forum after the contest is over.

    Nice historical feeling in the picture. Well composed. In my favorites.

    This is a great shot. I have no idea where it was taken, but it seems like it could be right out of Frank's "The Americans" or several other 20th century documentation portfolios. While I agree with the sentiments of your title, I would either have left this untitled or kept the title to the purely descriptive. Sometimes the picture tells the whole story. Still, nice going!

    Lots of character here and great atmosphere in the setting. Focus is sharp and the black and white gives it a timeless feel. A masterpiece.

    Excellent capture of the family and their interaction. Great poses, lighting, exposure. Might prefer a slightly tighter crop. Well done!

    Wow. Any high-paid journalist-photographer would be proud of such and image. Perfect for B&W processing; sharp focus and lots of human interest. Just marvelous.

    I think this is a Nat Geo or Life magazine quality shot. Not only is it well shot, but the warmth and happiness of the subjects come through clearly.

    Good choice to do in black and white. Like the upbeat mood you captured. Nice composition and contrast. Top 5.
