Judges Comments

  • A well composed moment that captures a sense of hurried but careful preparations. Graphically it benefits from some fortuitous coincidences: the similar bend in the arms of the women in red, and the curve of the pregnant woman's belly mirrors the curves in the paintings on the wall (as does the hair of the woman climbing behind the bride).
