Howard, Mike

Thank you very much for your both comments! Exactly, in the backround is a 
man but wthout any relationship with the woman, however all your suggested 
questions are very interesting and I agree about that the pictures posing a 
question are more interesting. Concerning the burning suggestion I keep it 
to try when I have the time to work this negative in the darkroom.
