Judges Comments

  • Just a great scene and strong moment – this felt like a scene from an opera. The photographer picked the right composition – stepping back and allowing them to be small in the picture – made for great impact in color and in light.
  • This photo is almost too perfect. The moment itself is undeniably on target as Champagne flies upward against the bride’s recoil, beneath a chandelier that seemingly drips from the ceiling. The light, color, setting and composition bring it all together for the viewer’s pleasure.
