Crop out left part of building to focus more on people
on Jan 19
What an adorable pose and title -- love their expressions. This sure makes me smile and feel warm inside. While I like the strong angle of the curb coming into the frame, I would have rotated clockwise until the corner of the building just above her head was vertical; I find the tilt distracting in an already very busy image. As you are already missing the tip of her gown, I don't think the loss at the bottom would hurt that much. The HDR is well handled, especially nicely done on the background and not overdone on the subjects. That said, I find the background much too busy for this moment and the HDR brings out all its bright busyness. The image has a lot of immediate impact, but it seems misplaced for a portrait.
