In the Washington news business, the technique of putting the subject between the camera and the light was called, â€œRiding the lightâ€ This was a good job of riding the light and the lighting of the people at the tables make this much more. The fact that the foreground and the balloons are not burned out is another factor in making this a winner.
This photo works because of the groom's reaction to the confetti falling on them. It is a nice moment of a couples early hours of marriage.
Nice motion. Lively image. I like the strobe. Light works. Depth of field is perfect.
This picture exhudes elegance. The lighting, position of the couple dancing, and the angle of the photo are what makes this stand out.
The use of color and composition creates a beautiful mood and makes this a strong image
Real slice of life moment in this picture. Glad the photographer made the guests the focus. Great moment to capture.
Great emotion. If the photographer had gotten down just a little bit and eliminated the guy over the man's shoulder this would have ranked higher. Other than that it is a charming picture.
This photo worked so well for me because of the intimacy that comes through, like the couple feels that they are the only ones in the room. The balloons, spectators and color added more layers to make this a stong image.
