Judges Comments

  • Very nice light on the grooms face and love the juxtaposition of the three gentleman helping and the one gazing out the window in the background. Could use just a little more detail in the blacks but it is nice that the faces are opened up enough to still carry detail.
  • What a great shot of the groom being attended to -- I was drawn in by this picture immediately. The light that illuminates the groom, the seriousness of the tone all in concert with the layering of the picture is wonderful.
