I met this couple at Palazzo Archiginnasio. They were happy while posing and smiling for their photographer. I took as discreetly as possible a few images. It would be rather unreachable to meet them again and give them this image, but I do hope for them to enjoy for ever happiness in their new life!

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge perfectly

First of all congratulations on winning the challenge, a well deserved result. In terms of the challenge brief you have fulfilled it to the letter with this image that suggests them heading towards a future together. I do have mixed feelings about the image, Im not too keen on the selective desat I think it was unnecessary the couple are the obvious focal point. The blurring is also unnecessary I just think the image would work on its own without. The final point the groom looks as though hes walking out of the pillar I think slightly later timing would have improved it. Having said all that your voters obviously enjoyed it, well done Paschalis.

The leading lines out of the image is a nice touch. Beautiful wedding image. (voted earlier)

Doesn't necessarily tell the happiest of stories. as she seems to be running away and drag him along, but I love the partial desaturation and the sense of movement created. In my top 3. Good Luck!

Beautifully done! Partial desats are difficult to get away with but this is handled perfectly (IMHO) and I love the sweeping feel. I'm sure this is a photo any bride and groom would be thrilled to have in their wedding album.
