hidden beauty

I decided to do something abstract today. This was another shot from the same wedding as yesterdays image. One of the guests was having an engaging conversation with another friend. Since throughout the ceremony we couldn't really see her eyes I thought I'd record/capture it.

beauty is very hard to hide, don't you think?

Fabulous photo with the focus on her beautiful mouth.
I do agree with Mary. It's a very beautiful picture
harder than we think possible...
now this is quite a good shot to show off your distinctive style...tigh framing that lets us feel the emotion, innovative composition and an air of subtlety because of the beautiful processing...
