Well well - surely a well spotted motif -and a fine title to follow - I like the composition you got here - only too bad I won't allow myself to take this kind of shots ;-)
Thanks for letting us see this Adi.

I can't believe I'm going to technically critique this shot (am I so old already?) It's a terrific composition, your framing choice is very funny indeed. I would say that the contrast is a bit...um...flat and the focus a touch...um...soft...but the humor of this makes talking about the technical details a bit silly so I'm going to stop and just laugh a bit. Cheers.

She obviously wasn't impressed about you being so close...
A bold composition, I admire wide angle portraits-- the closer the better I say.
Perhaps the contrast is a little flat, lacks a little punch but essence is there. Compositionally the girl's head seems to be floating, I miss her ear. I do like that you have cropped out the other person's head-- really forces our attention on the girl (unless one cannot suppress their libidio and is drawn to oggle the breasts) but to crop any closer to hear head would upset the balance so well done there.

Michael says that the fact of having cropped the woman's head forces our attention on the girl. Well I'm trying hard, but am not so sure about it. This composition allows us to settle a frontier between what we see and what we can imagine.
There is a clear subject we can all see, and that we can logically interpret by focusing on the girl's face expression. And there is a more subtile subject, not perfectly clear because related to our personal and subjective view on our environment, when we focus on the woman's breasts.
The colours seem very soft to me, and therefore very natural. The tight crop on both heads seems appropriate and in harmony with the open interpretation athis photograph allows.
