Happy Valentine's Day

I thought this photo of my girlfriend Robyn would be appropriate since today is Valentine's Day. I took this photo when we visited the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City. The pink glow on the wall and on Robyn's face is from an art installation that was basically a pink fluorescent light fixture.
I was happy with how the softness of the lighting, the focus and Robyn's smile created a warm and gentle look to the image.

I cant say anything bad, cause i like the photo... by the way did you tell Robyn to "think of Ian" before you took the shot.

Ha ha! Hops and I say Happy Valentine's Day, too!

I think the photo is kind of neat because it looks like a black and white photo thats been tinted pink/red, but its really an unaltered color photo.

Brocco- No argument here, makes it real easy to take photos of her.

I like the dramatic red/orange light bringing out her features in a subtle way. Lovely.
