Since she's already wearing the ring I think that a caption such as "She Said Yes" or "I Do" would have been more appropriate. This is a nice, stock-like image; it looks almost like a jewelry advertisement.

The catchlight really helps to draw attention to your model's eyes. Her smile almost looks coy, but feels a little too posed to have full impact. The text on her hand clearly conveys the message, but I wonder whether her using her finger to beckon the viewer with a "come hither" gesture would have conveyed the same thought more effectively. I find the gleam on her ring a bit distracting; if this were an advanced editing challenge a little judicious burning might have been in order. I have mixed feelings about the B&W. I think that it draws attention to her lovely skin tone, but it also highlights the color difference between her eyebrows and her hair, which I think upsets the otherwise balanced presentation. The close crop helps to accentuate the intimate feel of the image.

I would have never expected to see the word "fishified" in this challenge. The text and title are well chosen, but the execution of this shot is not as strong as the shots that it tries to mimic. A more well-defined shadow (and if possible, less blown-out text in the background) would make this a sure ribbon winner.

Even as currently shot, you probably could have adjusted curves to bring back a lot of the over-exposed areas and to increase the contrast in the shadows. Graphicfunk did a nice write-up on adjusting curves in this thread.

Nice contrast throughout this image. If the names in the foreground were less noticeable I'd have disliked the way that the image is framed. I'd prefer to see a little more backlight to help separate the man from the background. This is one of my top picks for the ribbon.

The obviously painted background makes the shot feel a little fake. I would have prefer to see the white balance set to leave the lace more of a true white.

Open Your Eyes Honey

Comment:
Something about the pointy toes on those shoes reminds me of the wicked witch of the East(?)'s shoes; I'd be better able to focus on the intended meaning of your photo if not for this odd association.

The rose petals and the position of the feet are nicely done, but the lighting could stand some improvement. The fold in the background makes it clear that this is a white bed sheet, and the white is overexposed around the rose petals. Playing with the curves would probably have allowed you to make the entire background white without blowing out the detail around the petals. I take it that the sheet forms a rounded corner as it transitions from vertical to horizontal; this does a nice job of hiding the seam and creates a more studio-like feel. The image seems to have been slightly oversharpened; if the background weren't such a bright white I doubt that the effect would be noticeable. The white background also makes your model's skin tone look a little uneven; in front of a more organic looking background this probably wouldn't be noticeable. I think that a little bit more breathing room behind the raised heel would make this image look a little more balanced.

I like the composition (even if it is a little clichéd), but the branches intruding on the silhouetted couple are quite distracting.

Was this taken with a camera phone? Please submit an image that's large enough to see. The florescent light above the couple's head draws attention away from them.

The spotlight effect is very distracting, but given the amount of visual clutter visible in the background even with the vignetting this may have been the better alternative. The white flowers appear to be overexposed by the flash. Shooting this with a shallower DoF and placing the model's faces closer to the center of the frame would have improved this image.

Three Times A Day
by GolferDDS

Comment:
The lighting seems a little flat; a light from behind would help to separate your subjects from the background. I can't help but wonder whether the different styles of brushes used is an intended part of the metaphor, or just an artifact of the oral hygiene habits of the members of your house.
