Judges Comments

  • Great moment that captures the humour. I like this photograph because of what it communicates. Moments like this – “May I see your ring? Oh, it's so lovely!” – happen all the time at weddings. But this bride is definitely not a material girl! She's in it for love. The composition is clean and contains only the essential elements needed to tell the story. The bride bending away to kiss her husband as the woman admires her ring makes the viewer smile. A nice moment.
