I know it won't do well. I know many people have no idea who Montagues and Capulets are. I know many people don't consider set up shots as art.

I know... I know, but I simply don't care.

I like the tones of this and the processing is really nice. I am not fond of the "staged look" of it; that said, it could be a "surprise" set-up for the young lady??. Fun shot.

Nicely framed ceremony. The tonality implies stability of the commitment. voted earlier

Firstly, I have read some Shakespeare, and, although I am getting older and more foggy, as I seem to remember, it does not go well for the star-crossed lovers.

Technically, the composition and concept is very well done, the sky tones and distortion are a bit off-putting.

As a whole, your picture may have more hope that the lovers, and if it means anything, although they have different balloon and shirt preferences, they both love jeans and snazzy sneakers. Maybe they can build on that.

I always thought it was a little different than that but that's a neat take on it.
