If I'm traveling, my little camera is always there. But I am not looking for photo opportunities. The most interesting photos I get by chance.
The young couple I saw in a former tax office in Kassel. There are Documenta13 visitors to the exhibition of world art. The two looked at chalk drawings on a blackboard.
I saw the couple when I was just left the room. Both were constantly in motion. I raised my camera - and only had about two seconds for this shot.
The couple did not pose for me or others. It's just a normal pair of visitors at the art exhibition.

I like those king of shot. This couple seems to be posing for you. This image is very sharp and beautifully composed. Though the background looks false, being monochrome, it does add to the quality of the picture.

Caro amico Wolfgang,
hai ragione gli spunti fotografici spesso si presentano senza cercarli.
L'importante è avere sempre con se la fotocamera.
La giovane coppia è stata ripresa in un atteggiamento molto naturale e rilassato.
La ringhiera è un ottimo elemento per il FG.
Nitidezza super, colori fedelmente naturali.

This is another just great photo. The background is so wonderfully fake that it reminds me of some old movie with an Alpine landscape backprojected in a Hollywood studio. The nice couple standing close together with their full attention directed at something we can't see is a fine shot in any case, but with this background it's just superb.

Superb candidate for a candid shot. I agree with you that some of the best photos are of the contemporaneous variety. In this instance, the exposure and resolution are exquisite. Warm regars, Wolfgang, have a good weekend.

Even you got only a little time, you managed an excellent portrait of this young couple. You have chosen very good low angle viewpoint and fabulous exposition (DOF-clarty-light). I like the BG, it fit so well to the composition. Without your explanation I'd believe that this is a photo from a holiday place and thet the couple has posed to you. I like it very much, really very good work. Have a nice weekend.

This is a wonderful shot full of romance and caught at just the right moment. Well done!

a lovely portrait of the couple being so close physically, emotionally and mentally, sharing the same focus but different opinions (I think). Although your composition brings us close to them they are deeply immersed only in their awareness of each other and in their discussion. I like very much the framing, the soft light and the absolutely natural colours. The background offers unexpected context and nice luminosity, so does the railing. I love the intensity this moment has for them. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hi Wolfgang, Wondereful double portrait of this young couple. So clear and colourful. And nice mountains they have as a background. Well, photographer of the people must act very quickly to catch the interesting scene. Not the case with the photos of the architecture, there you have time to think.

I love photos of young couples engaging in everyday life situations. I remember when my wife and I were young, and these kinds of photos bring back loving memories of our first years of marriage. Were still madly in love, but the young innocents of your lovely couple here, makes me wane for the those exciting adventurous days.
Simply a gorgeous POV and presented with great care to details and clarity. Colors and lighting are flawless. Most excellent presentation here Wolfgang, BRAVO.......and thank you!!
TFS.......Your Friend from California.......Buddy
