This images has so much story.
Wow.
I've always thought that the most "successful" images are ones that make ample room for the viewer to add to the story, to participate in it.
This, to my way of thinking, is just such an image.
Thank you Alan for bringing this one to life.

I can't meaningfully add to what Julian has said, Alan, and he's a master of this very approach himself. Beautiful and life-affirming.

I really would like to see this in black and white. With the two silhouettes in the top left it would mak it interesting.

Thanks for the suggestion Paul. I did experiment with conversion initially but you have inspired me to revisit!
