Two years after I took this photo this couple just got married in LasVages with 'Elvis' officiating the ceramony.

I had good color when I took the shot so I didn't need to change the contrast/exposure. Created OOB and placed a texture layer around the edges.

I like the "out of the box" composition. It all works!

Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

Rita, OOB stands for Out Of Bounds. It simply is a term to describe the technique where the subject seems to be coming out of the frame.

Patricia White has several OOB photos in the club.

Great original shot and creative post processing. The hdr application is accomplished and the different fx in and outside the frame add to the dimensionality of the image.
