This portrait is haunting, but still a lovely study of a young boy's face. Nice, artistic quality to the tones and the lensing is very good.
Nice, straight-forward portrait. Simple, but effective. You really get a sense of this kid's personality.
Stunning portrait of this girl. I loved the light.
Simple yet full of drama. The body language says so much about this bride-to-be.
A good job of seeing visual promise and then waiting for a bit of a moment to bring it all home.
Some images are just pleasing to look at. This beautiful image is one of them. I love how the geese repeat the pattern of the breakers in the water just ahead.
This photographer obviously has a keen sense of humor! People say that owners often resemble their dogs—apparently that holds true, even on their wedding day.
I love the seeing here. Such a different way to shoot a detail that gives it a really unique perspective.
No matter how long I stare at this one, I can't really figure out what's going on in the image, but it doesn't really matter as it's about the repetitive shapes of the Converse All Stars. Very nice frame, especially with the hands on top balancing the white of the shoes on the frame bottom.
This barren brick wall and singular window/sign was a great backdrop for the perplexed bride and young attendant. This image jumped off the page for me when I saw it. It made me laugh out loud as I looked at the bride placed perfectly against the window of the rustic scene, her temperment obvious to the reader. Focus might be a small issue here.
We love the point of view on this photograph. The environment is so rich and alive; you can only imagine where that bright blue car is going.
