Sorry... no news of a wedding for my crowd here... It's my daughter and son... and my engagement ring.

I was asking them to pose with the wine glasses (in front of our Christmas tree) and she suggested the ring part. (small flashlight highlighting the ring was my idea)

Yeah. She's brilliant. *grin*

But, it was last minute on night of rollover... and I don't think it's brilliant enough.

That's okay. We had fun. And that's good enough for me.

Happy 2012, folks!

I hope it's your best year... EVER!!

Such lovely bokeh to portray celebrating. Congratulation on your engagement (if that is your fiancé :-) )

I like the nice warm tones of this photo. The bokeh is wonderful. I wish the glasses were a little cleaner and there was just a tad more light on the glasses. Still a nice image though.

Love the golden tones and that lovely bokeh. A nice sentiment also. I'd have perhaps had a more even amount of each of their wrists showing but that's a small nitpick, just personal taste, the composition doesn't suffer as it is. Could be a wee tad sharper overall but I do like this.
