Some people say I still live in a fairy tale like little eight year old girls do.
What is love?
In that little world of mine, love is what I haven't yet found and, most probably, never will.
They say I'm too demanding; that I expect the impossible...
What, then, do I think love is?!
I think love is: Mutual...respect, faithfulness, togetherness, happiness and so on...
I guess maybe I AM too demanding!
My geese know what I'm talking about :)

What is love?

It's the second time I post this photo of my geese but with different pp work.
The pond is actually heart-shaped.
With PHOTOFITRE I covered the BG with outside progressive contour after having cropped the image. I used the blur tool around the edges of the pool and eliminated its edge on the right part of the heart to make it more "hearty".
To finalize the framing I used "spray photomasaque".

I'd like to wish everyone...love...Like Paulo quoted:
"To make a work of art you need not only talent, you need not only strength, you need also to live a great love."
"Para fazer uma obra de arte não basta ter talento, não basta ter força, é preciso também viver um grande amor."
-- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Hello Lurdes,
From the love path to the love pond...
It seems like we're dealing with a love triangle here; who's the brown chick?
The heart shaped pond and the pure whiteness of the geese represents St Valentine's quite nicely.
Thanks for sharing,

Olá Lurdes

Seja o o que for... o Amor é o motor da VIDA... uma vez mais rápido outras ...

Hi Lurdes:

Beautiful picture.
Very well composed with nice pp work. TFS.

Welcome Lurdes,
love - it's hard to tell in a word. Better to show on picture like Your photography. Well-thought-out allegory of love and very good composition.
Regards - Slawek

Maria, GREAT imagery here! Your cropping, formatting and framing are exestential to say the least. You are indeed a true romantic. Cheers!
