Judges Comments

  • Sometimes simple and straightforward is the best way to tell the story, and it did in this case. Straight to the woman catching the bouquet, and then you get to explore the rest of the image and focus on the other faces in the shot. Very nice.
  • Good angle on a classic image. The expression really pulled the image together. Well done.
  • Ahhh... so here it is... the near perfect bouquet toss image. One could not have staged it more perfectly than the photographer who had the wherewithal to choose the right position and moment to record this lovely scene of a classic tradition.
