Bridal Glow

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
BetterPhoto.com Photo of the Day  
Bridal Glow
Bridal Glow
I took this photo of the new Mrs. Sarah Palmones-Soliban in the wharf of Malipano Island, just as we were finishing the shoot and she was making her way back to the shore. The wind gently tossing her hair caught my attention and the way she was holding her bouquet so high. Candid moments like these make for a better capture because she wasn't aware how beautiful and glowing she was at that moment.

Beautiful idea, but the pasting and blending were far to sloppy. Photography is becoming very un photographic these days.

Thank you for the constructive comment, Ms. Naomi but I didn't paste and blend the image "sloppily". She was shot on location in a beach with a studio light. I enhanced the image according to taste because it was supposed to be a dreamy wedding shot. She wasn't "pasted" on a background. Here are other images: http://jojiealcantara.multiply.com/photos/album/135/Trash_the_Dress_A_Different_Wedding_Photography
Again, thank you for the comment. I too am very conscious of pure images, and not just photoshopping for the sake of covering a bad photo. Thank you.
