I'm really not sure how I feel about this one. It IS an expressive shot, and it gives me a clear feeling of two people letting go of mundane concerns. What would I expect to hear from these people, if I ask them how they expect to pay the rent on their upcoming adventure?

"Rent? Laundry? Car payments? Hell with that! Can't you see we're saving the world here?!"

I'm not sure what my mind is caught on, though. Something feels amiss. Perhaps I think the expressions are a little forced? I'm not sure if that's it, though. Certainly I can't point at anything in the picture or in my heart that makes me feel that.

I think it may be as simple as a mismatch - the foreground model seems to be quite windblown and carefree, like a "I go where the wind takes me!" adventurer. In the background, though, the model seems very serious, with cares and concerns larger than this world, or, indeed, how she'll pay the rent. I think what I'm feeling (Now that I'm typing it out) is that these two seem to be embarking on whatever journey together, but the way it affects them is almost as if they have two different journeys in mind.

I think you are looking into it a little to hard ..A mili second later and the expressions could have been totally different ...and everything you just said would be wrong...to me the picture says ...someone with a camera asked two people to pose for a photo ..and this is the result ....a very well taken picture of two beautiful people :)

Well, this is me. I always seem to get more out of Vik's photos than most people do, and I love it lots! Maybe I really am looking for something that isn't there. On the other hand, if that's the case, I still often find what isn't there in Vik's photography, whether it's there to be found or not. So maybe it's just not finding what isn't there that's throwing me off.

I always try never to hold back - I try to include praise wherever I include criticism, but the one thing I always try to post is an honest assessment - not 'good job,' or 'nice shot'. I know some people dislike that, and I try to remember who these folks are, but happily Viktoria never seems to mind.

It's about a point of view... To me, she doesn't look serious at all... maybe just... curious? ;)

I don't know; her gaze seems a bit too direct to me to be curious, her expression doesn't seem to show any surprise or puzzlement, the kinds of things people show about things that make them curious. Part of my impression of this shot also stems from the title, which may cause me to apply seriousness where others would not.

No matter what the case, though, you're absolutely correct - every work of art ultimately has 1001 interpretations - one that the artist sees, and a thousand that everybody else sees. Sometimes the viewer percieves the 1001st meaning, sometimes not, but they're never wrong.

Hey. It's my favourite photographer with my favourite model (models?)

Nice shot. Lovely poses. I think it's overaly too brownish, but I can't blame nature fore being like it ^^. I'm wondering how it'd look black and white with a little more contrast.

PS. Rebecca look very tall on htis one. How high is she?
