Absolutely amazing shot.

Nice Work!

I would have scored this image higher but I was momentarily confused as to whether the B&G were "dancing alone" or if the blonde woman nearly facing the camera was dancing alone. Obviously you mean the couple but my eye was drawn to the woman equally as much.

In the version you posted here...

the other woman doesn't stand out as much and the couple is the obvious focal point. I can see you cropped it for ROT but the original image is much better to me.

This is very cool. Super well done and seen.

I'm surprised at this too. I really don't see how some people honestly could give it a 1, 2, or 3.

I love it and really expected it to place top 10 at least.

Diego I am very surprised at this finish, this is a much better photograph than 5.7. Anyone who questions this being rule of thirds needs to read a book. So very well done. The best thing about this photo is that it is natural, no set up, no lighting, no high priced models, just a shot you saw and photographed.

This is what I'm talking about! The blond on the right is begging for attention but the white dress of the bride pulls you right back over. What a great photo, kind of makes me want to get married all over again so you could take this of me and my wife. 10 BTW, great title

At first I wasn't sure but the more I looked at it, the more I liked it. I would like to see with the aperature set a little higher so everyone is in focus. I think the white dress would still really stand out.

Good composition and lighting. The eye is drawn directly to the lady in white. However, the smiling lady on the left is a bit of a distraction as she draws attention away from the main subject. The lady in red is a perfect contrast to the couple in the spotlight due to the placement within the composition. 9

Impressive for basic. Interesting to ponder.

I have to admit I'm confused by this shot.
As I looked at it I thought "this is the rule of thirds: the bride is singled out in the crowd only because it is on the third line!!".
Then I read the title ...

Who is dancing alone?

What a great shot. I love all the different expressions on everyone's faces. The angle is great...makes it more interesting. Nice job.
