Great pic. A little too processed for my taste. The original is much better IMO.

You're Welcome!

This is a classic photo of a couple in love. Wow. You captured it really well. They will love having this photo in 20 years when everyone is heavier and backs arent as strong...LOL Nice.

I may be completely off base with this but from this end this picture appears to have had some very serious alterations.............

Great composition but looks a bit dangerous. Seems a tad out of focus. Not sure it meets my idea of a portrait but still a great capture.

wow. i love this. everything about it reminds me of a series of photos i took at acadia national park recently (the setting and editing and mood i was trying to capture) only i think you did a better job, especially in the last category. great work.

Great picture! Love the colors to add drama! Congrats!

Good photo, just a bit too much empty space, IMO.

Amazing shot.

I'm sure this wasn't your intent, but to me, this would make a good ad for contraceptives. :-) I like the sky background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like the pose and the BG, but the processing needs a littl emore attention. There is obvious halo around the girl from where the burning on the sky ends. Also above the rocks. Overall i like the way you are going with the processing, just needs a little more work to make it "sing."
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2005 05:17:20 PM
Love the overall feel of this shot. There is one "splotch" of gray in the sky right above the rock on the left that is a little detracting but overall a good shot (IMHO).

You have some dust in the sensor! Nice picture!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2005 03:42:56 PM
Not a portrai.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2005 12:37:17 PM
I really don't think this is a portrait. They are experiencing their happiness, not sharing it with the viewer. Also in this case I think the background should also be in focus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2005 09:28:54 AM
focus appear to be a bit soft to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2005 08:58:07 AM
Cute Picture. The background is too distracting though, maybe a tighter crop
  Photographer found comment helpful.

10...Love it!!!!

Was this a backdrop? The background doesn't look real. It's a beautiful picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 07:44:55 PM
green screen? not really a "portrait" though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 04:46:39 PM
Great lighting! I would rate this a 10, but it seems to me that the sky is a bit over saturated, and there appears to be a dust spot on the left side of the photo. Great job, though. I like this shot a lot.

this photo is amazing..beautiful colors...makes me smile

this could be a greeting card. nice colors the only small detail is the black dot to the left of the photograph just above your horizon line - I still scored this very high because of the wonderful emotion you've conveyed to me.

09/12/2005 02:36:07 PM
Lovely! One of my favorite of the challenge, hands down!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 11:32:00 AM
cool, but seems a bit over-processed. very pleasing to the eye otherwise
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 10:22:15 AM
blemish in the sky to the left...nice sky otherwise
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 10:04:11 AM
This is a wonderful shot. Love the color of the sky compared to the rocks and what can I say about the models! So Natural! I am so envious of these two! 10

Heavily processed background takes away from image and adds to the cheesiness factor.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 01:46:51 AM
Wonderfull shot. Love the offset images and the way you this one shot makes you feel so much emotion...I can see the preceeding moments as she rushes into his arms. Not many shots can do that - true talent.

looks like a magazine ad. the focus is a little soft on the couple but still an excellent photo!
