Some may think it a stretch, but I think the bride's fist-pump of joy totally makes this shot. Yes, I know it's grainy, but I like this photo dammit! ;-)

Congratulations Manic and Chiqui. I just read through all the comments and figured out who this ecstatically happy couple are.
The picture had put a smile on my face when I first viewed it, and I came back to see who they were.

Seems like the priest is the main figure here.

I really like that the focus (figuratively and literally) is on the official. I fitting protrait. How many times has he stood there?

Love the smiles....love her dress...love the shot....nice to see a really happy scene. Wish the bride and groom were more in focus but I am giving this a 8 because it appeals to me so much.

I would like to see the hands more in focus, but great energy in the happily ever after sense!

Sorry - I don't see this as meeting teh challemge and I dont like the soft focus on the star (the bride) and sharp on the minister.

Wonderful expressions on all of them.

In a way I hope I'm not the first to point this out, but just in case... ;^) The hands of the couple are not the focal point - the pastor/minister in the background is. Kind of a bummer because this had potential with the composition; position of camera to include all three people is great, odd number (3 people) is good, the couples hands are positioned near a ROT point. Best of luck in the challenge.

It's a bit a strange choice to focus on the priest
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Your focus is misplaced. The minister is in focus and the couple (and their hands) are out of focus.

Nice framing and expressions. Looks like a focus miss, unless you purposely wanted focus on the officiant. If so, you should reflect this in the title.

The expressions in this photo are great... I'm not sure I love it for the hands challenge, but then the more I look at it the more I'm convinced it's fantastic for the hands challenge. Thanks for something to think about...

Well, I can narrow it down to two people that may have taken this shot :)

The focus is on the pastor rather than the hands, so that makes it a little bit of a stretch for the challenge. But good luck to Manic and his new bride, nonetheless!

Wonderful composition! Focus a bit soft. Congratulations Manic and Chiqui!

Interesting choice of focal points.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 04:23:30 PM
it's great pic, but with the focus on the pastor's face rather than the couple's hands, it rather looses its way in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 12:53:50 PM
Aha! I seem to recognize these two. I don't know if it works for "hands", but it's such a joyful image - love it!

Nice moment. A little fuzzy for my tastes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 05:33:59 AM
Shouldn't the focus have been on the subject instead of the priest?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/22/2006 03:51:07 AM
the focus on this shot is off...it's a HANDS challenge???
