Judges Comments

  • Very "Reservoir Dogs" style. Love the use of street/alley environment.
  • Concept, execution and degree of difficulty are factors in exceptional Bridal Party portraits. This photograph has the contemporary feel of “realism” fashion photography. It is both casual and elegant. Supplemental light balances the backlit scene. The bridal party members are in a real setting behaving naturally. The grouping seems unforced, yet the composition directs attention to the bride and groom. The photograph creates the appearance of being a real, albeit almost perfect moment.
