    Beautiful shot Franz - my #1. And that is one of the loveliest wedding dresses I have ever seen.

    Congratulations, Franz. Beautiful capture.

    Ditto Mepo's comments. I can see she was nervous, lol! But, Michael, flattered as I am, my shots usually aren't this good.

    This seems to be a different style for you (not a snail in sight). I sense a lot of happiness and that makes me doubly glad! Congrats on a beautiful photo.

    Thanks a lot, Michael. This is a very nice compliment!

    Amazing shot - perhaps the style of dodrizzt or jade (meant as a compliment). WOW

    Thank you all for your nice comments.
It's the wedding of a friend of mine and she was really nervous - no, better said she was highly excited! I took this picture a minute before she was ushered into the church (...hope usher is the right word...). For me this picture conveys a lot of meaning. It was a great day and a great party afterwards.

    Lovely composition all up.

    Really nice capture - love the crop, which focuses attention solely on the hands. Perfect exposure and great detail.

    Nice composition, and nicely lit.

    This is a striking shot that caught my eye immediately. The focus and subject are clearly the hands. There is an element of mystery -- perhaps she is a bride. The only real color are the hands and flower stems which works really well. Top notch.

    I like this. The white lines in the background work brilliantly with the folds of the dress and the Extra Info is very good.

    A lovely shot in which the hands tell the story without a face to go with it. Nicely done.

    The play of color against white and grey tones works very well here as does the framing. Well taken and in my picks, I sense there is the promise of something more you could do to bring this up to the next level though I'm uncertain what. There is nothing technically "wrong" with anything you have done here that I can see (lighting sharpness composition framing, etc.) so the more I look the more I like this.

    like this one with good detail. i may have cropped to below the bust level with the elbows to make more of the hands to remove the distraction of the wire decoration.
