Quick snap out of my office window when I noticed there was a wedding shoot in front of my door (happens often). Only got two images, this is the funnier one.

When people ask me what kind of photography I do I always answer "Anything but weddings". Really, I wouldn't shoot a wedding for any money. So when I entered the challenge I thought it was a fun shot and quite obvious by the perspective and the situation I wasn't the wedding photographer, but an uninvolved spectator. Sadly, nobody seems to care and judges solely by the presence of a bride this couldn't be a street shot.

This is really good.. I love the quirkiness. Monochrome and contrast are great too. I did not score this as well at the time as I certainly would now. I guess I've learned something here.

She looks a bit like a cardboard cutout.

Funny pic. I hope, for the both of them, that she's placed on a platform. Great B&W with details in both the blacks and whites

Nice try. A little slower shutter speed would but the veil out of focus so it would look like it's blowing and would keep the dress from being overexposed.

Quirky wedding shot. Very nice.
