Too small

The photo needs to be larger. The photo has a snap shot feel to it.

Very sweet. You're going to get dinged for the size though.
02/06/2006 09:42:11 PM
looks way to snapshotty 3
02/06/2006 03:26:28 PM
Nice snapshot.
02/05/2006 11:17:11 PM
It's difficult to see details in such a small image.
02/05/2006 06:02:47 PM
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.

a nice personal snap of someones special day - will mean a lot to those involved but not a carefully designed shot.

I really would like to see a larger image so that I can properly rank it.
02/03/2006 05:29:43 PM
Image is to small use the 640

Tell them congratulations on their wedding, may they live happily ever after. If you want a better score though, I would suggest uploading a bigger image next, I find that the closer you get to 640 pixles, the better an image scores.

A very small, very "snapshot" picture. For both reasons, it's really hard to judge: images that are tiny are difficult to find deatils in. "Snapshots" are simply not the types of "photographs" that these challenges tend to be about. The content of your shot is appropriate, but your picture is nothing beyond what you'd expect to find in a photo album.

Why did you upload it so small? This could have been a nice snapshot, but overexposed on the whites, due to the flash, I guess. The background is distracting, too. When taking wedding shots, one of the most important technical issues is to have a correct exposure for whites. Therefore, lighting is very important.

The couple looks so happy... Sad this image is so small and not allowed to properly display their new bliss. This will result in a low score.

You might consider a very tight closeup crop of just the couple's heads cutting out as much of the background as possible. In the crop I'd position the woman's nose right smack dab on the left "rule of thirds" line and include the crop to just below the man's boutonniere. And please save it to a full size 640 pixel wide image. You and they will be glad you did.

The size of the picture does not maximise the impact of the image.
02/01/2006 07:23:04 PM
gotta post them bigger
02/01/2006 04:16:24 PM
size matters on DPC
try to make the longer dimension of the photo 640pxl for submissions to DPC so you don`t lose points for image size.
02/01/2006 02:10:28 PM
Looks like a happy couple, but image is too small to see much at all, please read the tutorial "Using Photoshop to Prepare Photos for DPC Challenges."
02/01/2006 01:29:17 PM
Sized incorrectly, poor lighting and subject placement. 1
02/01/2006 01:25:20 PM
too small.
02/01/2006 08:56:00 AM
I'm just afraid that this will be voted down because of the size, you should use the 640 pixels that we are allowed to use in challenges.
02/01/2006 03:36:28 AM
This looks like a snap-shot - the background is very distracting. It would also help if the image was larger. As it is it is too small to judge easily.
02/01/2006 01:24:04 AM
Too small to see properly
02/01/2006 12:57:09 AM
Too small.
