Strong. Very strong. I love the compression, giving the blurred background and almost tapestry-like feeling, that greatly emphasizes the inter-personal distance.

I'm content with this image Andreas and appreciate your support of it. Apparently it has struck many as exploitative. But isn't that what artists do? Don't we enlarge upon the anecdotal moment to reinforce an emotional communication? In a sense, isn't all art exploitive? I'm thinking that the theatricality of this spotlit moment amid the bustle of impersonal shapes may have touched upon an ungrounded emotional wire in many viewers. Hmmmm.... Isn't that a good thing?

It is - and you have every reason to be content. What makes me wonder is, that you answer a comment with a delay of half a year :D :D :D

As it's not that long until then: Happy happy, as a friend of mine uses to say :)
