[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at Champs de Mars near by the Eiffel Tower, this couple were having a photo shoot by their hired photographer and by all who had a camera around, which included me...

I was lucky to get this point of view where I could frame both faces through the veil and her left hand with the shiny golden wedding ring :)

Applied some contrast and played around (slightly) with other settings, also cropped the right side and increased the negative space in front of them and used the clone tool to fill it up.
Framed in a simple white 'paspartout'.

Superb POV and shade gives it a little veil of mystery.

Hi Galder,

This is a beautiful portrait - You have chosen a good POV and the composition is lovely. I like the expressions captured on the couple's faces in profile (I presume they were posing for the hired photographer and looking directly at him). Nice detail and perfect background, I think the couple would like your shot to add to their wedding album.

HI Galder,
What an artistic wedding photo! Great creativity with this veil covering both spouses!
Nice soft render to both portraits!
A great dark BG o enhance the composition.
Well done,

Beautiful creative shot- Well managed light and perfect POV with superb timing! Good notes to explain how you achieved this marvelous shot! Well done and TFS!

best wishes,


That's very cool .. the way you captured them through the veil. Nice to have that solid black as a BG, whether you produced it yourself or not.
Great job

HI Galder, this is so beautiful, what a dream! Unique composition.

I like your pov and your use of the veil to soften the images of the people. It has a good dof with nice details. Nice colors and textures. Well done, tfs.
