Judges Comments

  • This is such a beautifully comoposed photograph of a spontaneous (and slightly surreal) moment. Every individual, every line of sight in the frame takes the eye to the bride on the shoulders of the wedding party. The bizarre clown's head the bride is wearing is perfectly positioned in the frame. I love the two men in the foreground looking up at the bride, woman in the bottom right of the frame who is looking at the woman to her left whose two hands point up toward the bride. Everything in this image brings attention back to the bride. I have as much fun looking at the individuals in this photograph as they seem to be having at the wedding. A joyous photograph. Can you hear the music?
