Hi everyone, :D

We have two finalists for our poll who also were the only contributors of this challenge. : )

They both were very responsive and hardworking with their submissions, creating images that are in trend with the Valentine's Day as we know it these days.

Thanks to both and now off we go voting girls and guys! : )

Congratulations David! And thanks you Pat for the participation. I did not have any shots or inspiration for this one, I hope I can send something in for the next challenge!

:D :D You sound so cute, Dr. Harout! :D
Nothing to be ashamed of at all actually, as I'm sure you all realize. Some subjects are just more appealing than the others and will always be for Photoclub Alpha forum members.

You should be having a good throaty laugh instead, in my opinion. : ))

This is a surprise indeed - after all these months of not being here :oops:
I've/we've been very busy doing pot boiler photography - nothing as interesting as birds/insects/landscapes. As it's holiday time I popped in to catch up and got this pleasant surprise. Nice! A very worthy winner in David.
Thankyou :)
I'll try to upload some more photos soon.
