This a rather unique image in the genre of live band players in silhouette because, beside the fact that itʼs a really nice photo executed well by the photographer, itʼs the long stretch of band members with the equally long, linear background that “sold me” on this image. And if youʼve ever traveled south of the U.S. border through Mexico and particularly Central America, youʼd recognize the fencing style so popular around various public venues that host music, speeches, markets and such. So, the fencing, art into a short painted concrete wall, adds to the image as a setting descriptor.
Really nice reflection and framing and the bride is caught at the right moment with her dress. Beautiful.
Classic good use of reflection and silhouette combined. A picture within a picture. I like the crispness of the image against the reflection.
What a peculiar and funny juxtaposition as tourists pose for selfies using the beach wedding scene as their backdrop. Meanwhile the photographer, shooting a bridal party photo, notices a fun moment, grabs or spins to his wide lens to create a carefree juxtaposition that subtly suggests the fragility of our facades - that context changes everything.
Here’s an interesting use of lens flare, spreading across the frame in linear form as though becoming another row of spectators. And if that isn’t enough, the photographer chose the right moment to make the frame, as the bride smiles beneath a burst of light that acts almost as though it were crowning her for the day.
The choice of black and white and the lens flare add interest to this creative frame.
I liked the sense of place in this picture. It was beautifully composed and used reflection and light well.
I like the idea of taking a chance to do something different. Nice sense of place with the city below. The couple seem to be hovering above it.
