Judges Comments

  • 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.
