Silhouette du soir

Today the wife and I celebrate that we got engaged 10 years ago. To mark the occasion one of my favourite romantic shots from our recent trip to France. This one was an early evening shot in Blois (Loire), severely post-processed to give it a special feeling - not just a black and white conversion but also playing with extreme contrasts and shadowing. Scorned by Flickr Explore in spite of a rapid number of favourites - never mind, I love it.
