Beautiful Bride, Lovely Lady, waiting to get married. Hopefully I captured the emotion of the event, she was quite nervous.

I never like partial desat shots, and this one falls right in there.

Taking an objective view, the composition is quite nice, but you have made the flowers the main subject by removing the colour from the bride, yet the flowers seem to be slightly out of focus.

The area of the shot which is in B&W seems to have a lot of grain. This might work if it was the whole shot, but because of the coloured flowers it has actually ended up feeling like you have two separate images, one superimposed on top of the other.

Not sure how I feel about the desat.

Not overly fond of the selective desaturation, sorry. The image looks quite grainy and the composition is odd with the flowers overpowering the bride.

personally I like what you did with the de-saturation on this...but I don't like the color/tone on the flowers...they don't look right
