Proves that wedding photography does not have to be cheesy. Great shot!

Hard not to guess who this is. Great work as always.

bizarre wonderful photo 10. That tree trunk is a great composition element emphasizing the "joke" and the fronds of the trees are visually delicious. The embrace, even though relegated to second string, is authentic and loving, so that we believe in the notion of "soulmates" this plays off of, and the title transcends punning to achieve metaphor (and I notice a visual similarity between the couple and the feet to match the verbal pun).

good idea...

I'll bet she's got smelly feet and hairy legs. lol
It really is a good photo, though, with an interesting composition and dragonaizer effect works for me. I'm ambivalent about her being pushed against the extreme side of the frame. I'd be curious if the bride found this picture complementary.

Usually I rate wedding pictures in the low end of the scale as I find them of no interest to anyone but those who took part in the event. But this is different and I like it a lot. Great shot with a lot of warmth and positive feelings. Very well done and worh an 8 for now...

Love the sandy feet. Great perspective, line and exposure. Unusual for a wedding shot which is GREAT!!! Love her smile and hand cradling his head. Nice work. 8

You do this for living i guess. Very good.

How lucky they are to have such a ridiculously cool photo for their album! I love that her sandy feet are more in focus than her face, but they express the same almost reckless joy as her smile. The detail in the texture of her skirt adds so much. Beautiful!

Right then, joke's on me as I now have to plough through 564 images and bump them all (yes, all of them) up. There'll be a third run through for fine tuning. It's day two now and I'm running late, sorry.

Great idea, but it's still a picture of feet. Might a diagonal axis help? Feet down in the corner and the heads on a thirds cross-hair? Lot of joy in those faces and a very fresh take. 7

Good idea, but she needs to wash her feet. (No, I'm not referring to the sand!!)
