Judges Comments

  • Everything came together in this image, the lighting, the moment, the angle, to take first place for me. The bride, you see her full length leaning away, while getting enough of the groom to explain the champagne blast. Even such a small detail as the cake topper of the bride and groom kissing contrasted the image of spraying champagne. Nicely done.
  • Gorgeous, saturated color and light...peak action...I like how the spray envelops the bride as she reacts to the surprise. That is a serious champagne cork pop!
