Judges’s comments:
Very simple shot with a strong graphic appeal. the veil and framing of this image really make it a strong image. It is an excellent example of how something so simple can still be very dramatic.

A nice silhouette. i believe this image would be stronger if the left side was cropped and the top was cropped down to eliminate the bar. That said, it is still a very nice image.

Engagement Portrait - 5th position

A really nice way to illustrate this. Very well done and very different. The only thing I would suggest is to change the arm in the last step on the woman before they meet. Currently, her arms extends into the couple and I think it would be stronger if there was just a little space.

The warm tones here are a nice touch and I love the balance with the bicycles on both sides.
