I see what the others are saying, but I think it's a really moving shot because there's a distinct seperation between the two. It's kind of depressing, like there's something between them weighing them down.
Wow! And I just posted something in another thread about how so-called *mistakes* can be wonderful - this proves the point even more.
Someone up there mentioned cleaning up the solar flares - I wouldn't bother. I think they look perfect here. The entire image speaks of being a dream, and the sun and the flare only intensifies this dreamy state. How excellent you were shooting in B&W.
You should be proud of this one! You ended up with a great image.
