    While in Los Angeles this past week, I went to Malibu to rest and relax. I was enjoying the beach and decided to go for a swim at the sunset... When I looked over and saw this couple in a moment of deep and beautiful love. It was too perfect to not get a photograph of. I went and asked them and then took my camera into the ocean to get it from the angle I saw it in. The burning sun behind them, their deep embrace, the ocean crashing all around them... All symbolic of such a perfect love.

    Great job overexposing the background Adam — this light gives your frame a magical feeling, as my eye focuses on the moment of these two deep in love. I love how wide you shot this photo, further revealing the landscape to this scene. I love seeing that no one else is around. This photo does feel "symbolic of such a perfect love." I bet this couple loves this photo and are really appreciative of you taking this for them. Well done.
