Hello from the Critique Club!

I have studied your image and have the following to offer:

Composition/perspective - placement of the subject within the frame is very well done. I am a bit distracted by the elbows being cut off, but at least that is consistent. There is a lot going on which makes it a bit busy - flowers, the bride, the rose petals and all the wrinkles in the background. Most of this is offset by the overall beauty of the shot.

Color - there is a lot of colors in this image and all have been very richly developed. This shows a good command of your camera and capturing the reality of the surroundings. There appears to be a slight off hue to the skin tone, but it is not a distraction nor does it impact the image too much.

Lighting - very nice lighting control. I cannot discern if flash was used or if it is ambient. Again, a credit to your command of the camera There are no harsh areas in the photo - no glares, flares, or wash outs. The veil gets lost in the sheet but it appears they really are very close to the same shade of white.

Challenge requirements - first, as stated above, this is an extremely pleasing photograph. But to me, for the challenge, there is just too much color and dark shades to be a good fit for a light on white. The veil being lost leaves the hair against the white sheet, the skin is too dark to be 'light' and the only real area where the dress meets the sheet is disrupted by the dark ribbon.

Overall/my opinion - very well shot photograph that demonstrates an excellent eye composition, a good ability to grasp the moment and get the right capture, and overall control of the situation with your lense. Very well done!

Great pic, original! I have never seen a pic of a bride laying down! Your focus is right on. Well done! The rose pedals add so much.

This is very pretty and "soft." It's like she just collapsed on the bed in pure joy. It has a casual sense to it which I like. The bouquet and the petals around her add a nice bit of eye candy. Some may say that it's too much darker color to truly be light, but with her dress and the lace on her wrists, I think it still works.

One of the best, 9. Call me crazy, but my brain wants this to be flipped horizontally. Not sure why.

Beautiful colors here. Nice and soft. The skin almost looks too smooth. Unnaturally smooth. I do like the overall look of the image and the composition is putstanding. I give this a 9:-)

Awesome picture. I wish it was "light" on white. I feel bad giving it less than 10... but I really dont find it "light".8.
