Lovely photo with lots of atmosphere. Well captured at exactly the right moment when the lantern is taking of. Great how the people are looking up at the lantern, thus drawing the eye of the onlooker towards it.

I am writing this critique on an iPhone. Later I will look at your other photos and offer more comprehensive critiques with my computer. I did not want to lose this superb photo. The composition, light management, exotic subject have all collaborated to make this a first rate photo.

Maria, I didn't want to let this shot sit with so few comments. You've captured this moment beautifully - I can't say enough about the way you've composed this shot, and how every element draws the eye to that perfect glow in the lantern. Stunning lighting, even if the figures are a bit dark that's a choice more than anything else, and one that works. Fantastic photo.

A nice romantic capture, perhaps even a little bit hopeful. A few weeks ago, in my neighborhood, we released one of these wish balloons in celebration of a house that had just turned 100 years old. Who knows what wishes went up to the sky that night? Just as we don't know what wishes went off into the sunset for these two... but given the romantic setting, we can perhaps guess ... :)
A nice moment you have shared, thank you ~
