    Hi Jennifer;

    I would like to see the background blurred behind them ... especially the chandeliers. The subject layer position needs to be moved a touch. You need a good thin accent line to give separation from the background layer.

    I wish we had bigger than a wallet size to look at.

    You are gonna get dinged for multi points of interest.

    The couple, the chandalier, and the candle.

    BTW, I have found it best NOT TO photograph your light souce.

    Interesting... I hadn't even thought of the light sources as points of interest. I thought they added to the romance. But, I can see what you mean.

    Now that I look at it bigger, I had a print slapped down because the bride was of larger size.

    Just a warning...

    Oh Donnie that's just wrong! If a judge or group of judges ever commented like that, they should be removed. We can't all go out and hire supermodels to do our comp prints. Don't get me started. I already kissed and made up on the step mount issue.

    Jennifer, I am not a judge nor have I ever competed so you take anything I say with a gain of salt and listen to those who compete or judge. However, This couple is the area of greatest contrast within the framed window. The light backgound does tell the story. I am not as bothered by this as D. Craig and Donnie. But, I am not a judge or competitor so what do I know. Nice image and it was great thinking on your part to capture this moment.

    What Ron said!

    If you were not paying attention, you would have miss this!

    Ron is so wise, that we (okay, I) lost sight if this image from the couples perspective, and only looked at it from competition.

    Yeah- that is a shame. She was the most beautiful bride I have had in ages... and I get some really pretty girls. She just had an energy that was gorgeous!



    Beautiful girl no matter what her size!

    Donnie please don't take my comment as saying you were wrong in any aspect. I just meant that the judges were wrong by knocking down a merit due to a girls weight. Just bad judging and bad judgement.
    You're cool and I respect your comments as always.

    Yes, she is a beautiful girl and bride.
