I'm worried about you, Pedro. Twice in a row you've entered a photo that I love. This could spell scoring doom for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 06:39:38 PM
Well, we both know how much this photo rocks. I'm discouraged at it's placement but soooo glad you entered it. :)

sheesh. way underrated..

classic shot...I'm thinking there's a lot of DPC voters that owe you a kiss goodnight....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is awesome. I can't believe it didn't score higher.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 12:10:21 PM
This is cool. The choice of the breezeblock concrete block background really makes it sing ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 12:02:07 PM
Man, in my eyes, this is close to the best.

Your wedding photos are so original, I love them, and this is one of my faves. Just brilliant!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 05:46:07 AM
DPC knows photography like America knows soccer, and this score and placement proves it.

Criminally under-appreciated shot here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 05:00:44 AM
I look at this picture, look at the score, and then I bang my head against the wall. You are truly one of the most original photographers out here...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2007 01:23:30 AM
Ya know... there are in the box thinkers and out of the box thinkers.
There are brilliant photos..and not so brilliant photos..
but this one right here???? Brilliant!!! Based on the majority of comments you rec'd as well.. I'd say the people who get it are as magical and rare as this photo is.

Timeless work P. Rox .. to quote Az.. Rocks!!!
and the fact that your brain gave this portrait life.. is why you remain one in a million to me.. one of my photography heros.

** not a bad score given the amount that entered..but still a gross injustice in my opinion **

What an f-ing rip off. This is brilliant. I guess people don't like smoking brides. I do.

Hey P'. Good choice, certainly not your standard fare. Good Luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2007 04:39:36 AM
Interesting portrait. Not your run-of-the-mill wedding photos. Also has a retro feel to it (maybe that's just the cigarette - you don't see those in photgraphy much anymore).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2007 03:41:33 AM
Strong impact with this one.....

One of my all time favorites on the site, and perhaps the best wedding shot ever!

Grat job, Jack

Good subject. You should really quit smoking! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awesome candid, or a great setup shot (fooled me if it was!). Very nice composition and processing. Back to bump you up to a 10. Love this shot.

Great portrait

Evocative photo. Not something I'd shoot myself, but exquisitely captured and presented. 9

I know I've seen this, and honestly don't remember who's it is, and won't go looking either - I'll just smile and admire it all over again.
Well done!!

Awesome image. So fun and "tough". Beautiful woman and such a great idea. Great grainy texture. Would add this to my favorites but I think it's already there! Back to bump you up to 9.

not attractive!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2007 03:17:56 AM
Can't help myself, I need to say this she looks alot like a famous romanian actress "Maia Morgenstern" (Mary from Mel Gibson's passion of the Christ) http://images.google.ro/images?q=maia+morgenstern&hl=ro&lr=&sa=X&oi=images&ct=title

Good picture!

I don't get this.


I hope those are bubblegum cigarettes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 10:49:10 AM
Pedro, this is still one of my favorite bridal portraits. The look on her face and the tonal range are perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2007 09:03:52 AM
great!

01/14/2007 11:35:01 PM
What's not to like here? Ok the cig may not be good for you but it so makes the pic.

ETA: Returning to bump this up. Btw, I forgot to say this must be Pedro's although I don't think I've seen this shot before.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2007 02:11:53 PM
An excellent wedding photo! Certainly not the 'usual'. Only thing I findslightl distracting is I am not sure if the photographer is standing at an angle to the model or whether the image isn't quite straight (hope this makes sense)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 10:52:20 PM
Hey Pedro, I loved this shot when I first saw it - just classic!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice. I give this a good score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2007 10:38:55 AM
Very expressive.

This has so much personality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 11:43:00 PM
A bride with attitude. Gotta love it :)
Everything here is spot on. I like this shot most for it's uniqueness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 07:39:48 PM
Hands down, one of the best wedding portraits I've seen...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 06:00:53 PM
the B/W really makes this photo work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 02:13:36 PM
HA! Excellent. I love the real life feel to this. You definitely captured who she really is. Nice contrast and clarity. Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2007 01:19:19 PM
As far as true photography goes, this is what it's all about. When I look at this I get a sense of timelessness. What's rare about this wedding photo is that it has a captured moment that both the bride and advanced photographic eyes can appreciate and cherish. It's a nice piece of commerical work and art. It's a brave move to enter something like this in a community like DPC. It's contrasty, grainy, her heads chopped off and most of all- fucking awesome. Keep it real and take the powah back. 10

HA HA HA HA So loving it. Going to a wedding on Sunday. I wish I could get the bride to pose like this for me.
