it's one of the most inspired and inspiring photographs i have seen in a long long while. definitely worth the DD and all the recognition. splendid really. the cool tones, the pronounced veins on his hands, the way the girl is wrapped all around him like he's all she needs...really, i've been looking at this image for quite a few minutes now. and damn, i swear it's going to stick with me for a long time. really well done, kudos.
