Hi Clive - surprised to see you looking for a critique?! This is going to be tricky! I'm going to have to nitpick...


I'm not sure I have anything to add. Could it be sharper? Probably - but I don't think it would be appropriate.


I really like the concept and I'm 99% sold on the result. With the benefit of not being the guy standing on the hill taking the shot and capturing the moment, I would have placed the couple a tiny titchy bit further right and up in the composition. At the moment, my instinct keeps screaming that her foot has been cut off - I know it hasn't but that is the visual effect.

Overall, nice work - I'm sure that the lucky couple were thrilled!

One of my favorite type of newspaper assignments is to capture "wild art", which is defined as "Stand-Alone, Feature Shot, Enterprise art are found moments that are intended to be realistic slices of everyday life" (definition taken from this glossary). These are typically images that caption themselves, not needing a lot of words to get their point across. For this challenge, I'm scoring images as whether I'd like to see them on the front page of a paper as feel good wild art. If I don't think they would make the paper, I'm then asking myself, "does it make me feel good?" If it doesn't do much for me, well then, oh well...

Cute, and on topic. What's not to feel good here?
