The light, the scene, those beautiful saturated colors are as much a feast for our eyes as the feast the waiters carry. It’s an image to savor with a salacious imagination of the food, drink and merriment behind the walls of that tent. The waiters are highlighted as the setting sun lingers long enough to paint them onto the canvas behind them. That’s pretty flavorful.
A beautifully made photograph, this image has a perfect mix of composition, light, reflection, graphics and timing.
The body language of 'Charlie Chaplin' says it all. And, the inclusion of the wedding cake let's us know he is performing at a wedding. The juxtaposition is very funny!
A throw back in time. I love the blank stare of the impersonator juxtaposed against the elegant tiered wedding cake. One has to wonder what he's got cooking beneath that bowler hat. Great vision on the part of the photographer.
The bride and groom, presumably lit by a slaved strobe, anchor this vivid moment of a “fire breather” performing at their reception. The cool light of the flash brings an interesting balance of light and color to this dramatic scene.
Great balance of action, light and composition — and a tough technical image to make. The performer is just about to eat the flame (which is a perfect highlight to his body) as the couple enjoys the show. I only wish that the light on the couple was warmer to match the beautiful light on the performer.
I really like the view the photographer used when they shot through the horses. This was a different look and I think it really worked. It is important to point out that you don't always have to see every part of the subject to know what the subject is.
This is a fun image as a musician gets a little crazy and revs up the revelers by literally “getting down” with his guitar. The expressions of the crowd provide the right perspective to the scene as they create a leading line and a visual frame for the moment.
Excellent composition and framing by the photographer to emphasize this enthusiastic band member as he wails on the dance floor.
It’s all about the composition in this image that found the right moment accentuated by the shape and form of those beautiful white drapes. They frame the worker whose action is accented by the orange spray bottle. That’s an important detail of this image that provides a quick narrative for this scene. That whimsical chandelier offsets the image, adding balance and a touch of fun.
It would have been fun to see a performance with Cirque du Soleil style, in a plastic bubble, on water. But this image created that desire through the use of (what appears to be) natural light in (what appears to have been) a difficult lighting circumstance. Regardless of the light source on the performer, it’s just the right amount to reveal the moment while preserving the mystery and mystique of the event.
