Tearful bride

From the same wedding as this shot, I've decided to process another shot as I'm currently working on this album. This was from one of the really emotional moments at the service, I made sure I caught this one quite well ( in that I took quite a few shots) as I'm not normally blessed with good candid moments. Most of the time I seem to be at the wrong place at the right time.

Again this might not be to the taste of those who don't like noise in their images. I do like this one though.

You just know that I am going to love this, totaly beautiful Jide, Absolutely perfect Mr Blurr. Mal
Jide Alakija: Thanks Mal, what do you think of my noise work in this one? I used a selective mask this time.
hey jide,

wow, this is a picture perfect capture. this is, in my humble opinion, one of your best wedding photos. really well spotted and quite an awesome capture.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Nicole. I wasn't too sure how it would be taken after my last noise shot.
Hi, May I ask you have a look at Obadiah Shoher's book and blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict? Google banned our website from its advertising program for “unacceptable content," and Amazon deleted all reviews. The book, however, is only honest, and the measures suggested are only rational. Shoher is a pen name for veteran politician. He dealt with antiterrorism issues for most of his career. The Samson Blinded dissects honestly the problems accumulated since the Jews returned to Palestine. Advocating political rationalism, it deplores both Jewish and Muslim myths, and argues for efficiency and separating politics from moralism. Please download the book from www.samsonblinded.com/blog Being banned by Google, we depend on links to bring Shoher’s message. May I ask you to link to us? Sure, we’ll be glad to link back. Thank you in advance, Anne White.

Lovely shot, and love the noise. I'm beginning to embrace noise, especially when it contributes to the mood of a shot so well.

I'm thinking that this might be one of the happy couple's favorite images.

I like this very much, however, when I looked at the other shot, I did not recognise her as the same bride. It is a very touching photograph.

really like it...the over-intensifies yellowish light and her her downturned face really bring out the poignancy that you're trying to portray...
