    Hi Kim, I think this shot is a bit close-up for my taste, I personally like to give this particular moment a bit more privacy. However I doubt it was an intrusion, as long as you were quick about it.

    The main critique I have is that, considering how close you seem to be, I wish that I could see her face too, and not just his. When you get this close, it can become weird to see the side-angle view on people’s faces sometimes. I’m sure you also got some of her face while he was looking at her, too, though. so those two images side-by-side in an album would be much better at telling the story.

    Other than that, the next thing that stands out to me is that I wish the background had been a little bit more illuminated; I’m not sure if you entered this EXIF information manually, but it says f/4, and I would have definitely shot this at a faster aperture, whether you have a prime or an f/2.8 zoom here, I’m not sure. You could also probably go at least 1-2 stops higher on the ISO, for the D7100, and still get great results.

    Whenever you notice people in the background with lights like this, try and take a quick step to the left or right, and hide them behind one of the subjects’ heads…
