It's all done

First of all thank you for all the wishes and congrats sent yesterday, I've (now WE) never received so many messages like that even during my birthday, it must really be special. As such I've decided to put up one of my special shots from a recent wedding.

Thanks ALL.

Not sure about this one... the rows upon rows of empty seats gives the impression that there were barely any guests at the wedding... But i love the way you captured the motion in the groom's stride.
Jide Alakija: The couple were walking from the chapel they got married in through the main church on the way outside. It was taken in a very large church with many chapels. Sorry dude, just what the camera saw.
What's up with your blogpage Jide? It seems to load differently to everyone else's...? Poor guy on the left, has anyone told him...lol.
Jide Alakija: Differently? I don't understand. Can you explicate please.

Very sweet shot and even sweeter editing you have done here, there is this quality in this shot that just screams out "Blow me up to A1 size cause you know thats the only way to enjoy me" Has this dreamy feel to it. for me an awesome picture and edit.

This I really really like

Great shot Jide, I like the way you have left the very dark roof area in, it contrasts well with the perfect exposure of the lower scene. Mal

really nice shot, captivates the joy of the moment
Jide very nice shot, this simply tells me you have begun your "walking down the aisle" preparations.
Jide...the quality of this image is really superb. It reminds me of the old Venetian oil paintings where everything is crystal clear and the lighting surreal. Really, really nice! (PS: thanks for letting me know about my RSS...I need to fix it).
