60% that it will even last... sorry

Very nicely done. I love the crop allowing for the blown fabric.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2008 07:48:19 PM
Nice image, the background just doesn't seem to fit & the border is to thick.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2008 07:25:52 AM
nice classic
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/30/2008 03:15:01 AM

nice; love it; hope my wedding photographer will have at least of your skills
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 04:26:23 PM
This is beautiful. The tones are lovely.. .the breeze just makes this even better. I wish he were more 'into' the kiss with his hand reaching for or touching her.. but I won't complain about it. *wink* It's really a lovely 'feel good' image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 01:37:36 PM
This is a beautiful picture in white and black, very well taken.

IMHO the best in this challenge... love the tones and :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 03:11:35 PM
Moving his right hand to her hip would make this shot infinitely better, great composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/27/2008 04:38:37 AM
Excellent light and I really like the tint
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 09:31:41 PM
Great tones and I love the intimate mood of this shot. Pleasing contrast and so well composed. Back to bump you up to 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 10:52:22 AM
Maybe water should be darker, or something else to provide more contrast? Nce and sharp.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 06:32:54 AM
Beautiful people, beautiful tones. Love the slight brown tint, the dress flowing in the breeze, the composition, simple background, placement of flowers, capture of the kiss moment. Wonderful shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2008 12:43:14 AM
I love the shared kiss, the flowing dress, the B&W toning. I kinda wish his right hand was somehow more involved to add a greater sense of intimacy to the moment.
