I like a lot the way you framed this in 2 halves, in & out ! Plus the timeless tone. Really good !

I love the toning Peter and the general air of "We don't need chocolate".

right back to you , and first what I said - wow, what a brilliant tones ... Tell me please Peter, how did you get these tones... It is split toning , right , but these green is timeless ?
And now - compo is for 10 !!!! Perfect , all is perfect ...
I just came home and trying to visit back and friends who commented on my last picture, and this one is really, but really the best from 80 pictures I saw so far :)))

@MARIANA: ".....Listen, do you want to know a secret? Do you promise not to tell? Ohho, closer, let me wisper in your ear, say the words you long to hear..." Yep , I know my Beatles (Gosh he's that old) .
No split toning, here Mariana. Duo-toning, So simple

This is a classic shot, like something from Dosineau.

@Twelvebit: I'll take that for a (big) compliment. Thanks! But Doisneau enscenated his pics, not me (here).
