The texture of the raindrops on the car windshield is great! Great use of the light to make that happen. Very cool! Nice touch with the flowers near the windshield wipers.
Great texture and light.
Rain may ruin many a wedding day but in this case the photographer effectively made use of lighting and the elements to produce a creative graphic portrait. Nice job of making a standout portrait out of what could have been nothing.
The photographer did a great job using rim lighting in this portrait to highlight the couple yet not keep them totally in silhouette. That in combination with taking advantage of the environmental lighting produced a beautifully photographed portrait that succeeds on every level.
The setting in this picture is important, of course, but it could easily have been a cliched hindrance rather than an asset. Eiffel Tower? Yawn! But the photographer created such a striking picture, taken at a just-a-second-before-the-kiss moment, that the iconic tower is simple a place setter. That eye is the center of the photo. Beautiful.
There is nothing subtle or reserved about this portrait. But the photographer controlled the natural light's exposure, the artificial light's exposure and coverage, and the composition of the elements, that the picture becomes a story-book illustration. That could have gone tacky and bad, but this photo is just plain good. A slightly more compelling moment would have amped it up even more.
