My absolute first attempt at HDR! Perhaps this was not the time...lol!
...but I loved the image, and I'm sure my HDR skills will improve over time....well...maybe never enough for the purists.....I'll have to do landscape for that.....
The was a candid image taken at a wedding, and she was a fabulous bride with a great sense of humour....
Thanks to all those who took time to comment and vote... :)

Cropping is odd as it cuts woman on left. You might have a story here, but the image is depressing and the title does not help either. It doesn't work for me...

Moving people are not easy, nor plausible, subjects for multiple blend HDR.

Very interesting character study, but the tone mapping with black over her skin doesn't improve the shot for me--it distracts. Also, did you consider cropping out the woman on the left; she distracts as well, being faceless. But the others complement the scene.

The photo most certainly fits the title. Not sure it's wowing me much, but I don't think that was the intention here. Bit of a busy scene in the background, but a good capture of a moment that is different from the usual wedding photo. I was going to give it a 5, but the more I look at it, the more I appreciate it and I think it deserves a positive side vote.
