I really liked this one, and am shocked that it did not do better. I was one of the 15 sevens. Perhaps pics that lean more towards the imagination, or ones that are intended to elicit emotion don't work well in some competitions. I think the focus/blur is perfect for this fantasy style pic.

This is a beautiful shot! I didn't have a chance to vote on it in this challenge, but i definitely would have bumped up your score.

My prediction came true :(

This is a wonderful photo - very monetesque, and is very underrated.

this editing of the couple doesn't work for me, the blurred foreground is good though.

The overall blurriness of the picture messes with my eyes. 3.

Surreal, lovely colors. The hands behind her back seem odd. I doubt most voters will appreciate this photo or the PP, I do. Very very high score.

I would like to have seen the yellows more yellow and brighter, the greens a little brighter as well. Also I would have liked a different title.

Either way - 10. Yep, I like it.

I'm sorry to say this, but I find this painful. I think you were trying to go for a soft focus look (which I quite like at times), but this has gone too far. Hopefully you still have the orginal and you can re-do it - perhaps someone could even help you with it if you'd like.

Guess you were going for a dream like quality. It might have worked better either less blurred or less bright, I think. Not sure It's a good choice of background except may for the handrail, but the white is too bright for me?....not sure. It is different and I do appreciate the attempt.

This looks so beautiful. My preference would be to have at least the couple in focus, or part of them.

A special shot the couple will love. Good luck

Billy Idol :) Great composition and location ... I wish something was in focus though ... and it doesn't have to be the bride and groom that I think you have OOF deliberately.

The soft focus effect isn't working for me.

Hmmm...I don't know what note to put on this picture...There's no point in focus but it doesn't block the lecture of the picture: everybody understand what it is...
and I like the colors too...It's really not easy. I would say a 6...

Overprocessed. I can barely seen any kind of focus at all.

It's a nice idea, but I think you went a little overboard.

What a wedding photo. I love the colors and loving glow.
