Il n'y a pas d'âge pour paraître deux amoureux même si on est moins collé à cet âge. Ta photo est très intéressante et belle expression du couple. Excellent éclairage, bons détails et parfait rendu des couleurs.
Tous mes compliments et bonne semaine,

Nice capture, perfect title ! Why not, this couple is also a pair of beautiful jewel, looking to the photgrapher.
TFS and best regards

This is a fine composition with the nice couple. They indeed are like gold and silver. A photo very high on the emotive count. Superb choice of title and excellent framing. Like it a lot, thanks for sharing.

I like the seeming juxtaposition of gold and silver written on the glass window behind this lovely old couple...I presume. Of course, the elders, having acquired wisdom through time, are really the jewels of the town. Beautiful and lovely shot!

They look very happy together this couple sat outside the jewellers. Lovely dual portrait beautifully presented.

They certainly look like jewels, the question remains who is Au and who is Ag. They look like a very nice couple and at least the lady adds a lot of colours to the view. They seated themselves beneath very appropriate signs.

an image full of wonderful symbolism and detail. Characters like this are priceless and you have captured them beautifully in this stylish image. A real delight! The way a country looks after its senior citizens speaks volumes, something that this present batch of politicians should perhaps ponder on a bit more often.
Have a good week - B.

How appropriate a title for this lovely photograph and, of course, the first thing that came into my mind on seeing this was the old song "Silver Threads Among the Gold"!
These two people do indeed appear to be a charming couple, judging by the way they are sitting and obviously relating both to each other and to the photographer. You've caught them in lovely light which brings out their facial features and the features of their clothing ever so well, and they are very cleverly portrayed against an absolutely appropriate background.
Lovely light and colours, a fine composition and superb details and sharpness throughout.

This is a very fine and attractive picture with this elderly couple. They look very happy and they also add very good colours. A very good snapshot!

The jewels are this charming couple, but you knew that, didn't you! Clever title and a delightful scene. You can tell the couple felt at ease with you taking their photo and I like the characteristic background which sets the scene delightfully.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day

Love this comparison, Leslie - Gold and Silver indeed, and these two seem about the happiest people in the world. A really nice little portrait, thanks for sharing it.

You're capturing well this couple by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the charming elderly couple which is sitting on bench in front of jewelry store. She wears showy and nice clothes and he is the atmosphere relaxed naturally. And, many jewels in store draw out an unique effect in this image.
