- I've seen a lot of images of people throwing, zinging, shooting, pitching and tossing everything from bird seed to the traditional rice but this one resonates in a particular way with me. First, consider the composition, elegantly imbalanced, which helps convey the frenetic feeling of the moment. Secondly, the bride's expression reveals her joy, in spite of the bucket load of "good wishes" and "good lucks" that she is receiving. It's a joyful moment expressively conveyed.
