Seperate worlds

I guess yesterdays image wasn't to the taste of many. Well that's a pity, I can please everyone all the time.

This is a shot taken at a wedding. The lady in the car is the bridesmaid and the boy the ring bearer. I think the rest of the story is clear in this image.

Apparently I have a very distinct style. Would you have thought this shot was taken or even processed this way by me?

u do definitely have a distinct style but this shot is not the best example of that style...not to say that this shot isnt good...its a brilliant take with the different expressions and the creative composition...

Still on vacation but decided to comment on this smile I like this one for the reason that it shows the beauty in the bridesmaid as well as the excitement in the ring boys face. I would say those two are required for a succesful wedding and you have captured that here. I even think hiding part of the bridesmaids face adds to the picture and keeps it from being boring. Ok enough said, I like it
off course u have a distinct and don't pretend like u don't know, people can recognise an Alakija shot when they see one. one of the things i like about ur photography is the moments u capture, it is photojournalism with the Alakija stamp on it. very evident here

Just the right balance of reflection, capturing two emotions. Lovely.

I would say it is classically Jide. Not the best example I would show people but it is a great shot. I like to think of them as your reflection pieces. Plus little man is going to be happy with this picture and it is nice to see Suru comment.
Very creative shot

This is a clever way to view two people in different positions from the same viewpoint.

It has the added bonus of showing the interaction between them, and their attire and their smiles convey the event that's making them so joyous.

The whole concept has a very positive feel.

The first words of your intro of course led me back to yesterdays...
