its post.

I willed the veil to fly!

It was perfectly windy and sunny that day...mixed with a perfectly lovely bride with a perfectly long veil. Was just one of those times when all of the pieces fit.
09/16/2007 11:06:49 PM
Did you use any softening filters on it when taking it or in post?
And was there wind that day?

As an aspiring wedding photographer this is simply the goal for me.

01/15/2007 10:46:03 PM
I hope you have printed this gorgeous image as large as it should deserves to be. I think it will only be a 'nice' image if it's smaller than 16X20", and preferably larger than that. On a high quality Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper, preferably. This image needs a lot of real estate to show how excellent it is. An 8X10 would be an insult to this extraordinary image.
