Okay I'm running out of stuff to put up and so I'm puttin up stuff from my archives.

This was from a wedding I really enjoyed covering about a year ago. The bride walked down the aisle with her friend and her brother. You'll notice the dialogue between her and her brother... I wonder what they could have been saying to each other.

Okay on an honest note, can you tell me what is unique about this shot? Would you have thought that this was one mine?

Whats Unique, it's got your unique clarity and PP style all over it.
Would I have thought it was yours, refer to answer above grin

I like the range of their facial expressions. Also, before I read your explanation, there's a certain ambiguity about their roles. Why does the bride have 2 men walking her down the aisle? The picture keeps you guessing!

I love this photo ! Love the happiness on her face, that smile is so infectious !
Hmm... Canon EOS 5D - not a box Brownie so the viewfinder's at the back, not on the top. This looks like it was taken from waist level or below, so you had to have been in a most unwedding-like position on your knees or your backside on the floor.

Can't imagine what bro was saying to sis, unless it was something out of the side of his mouth like: "Just keep walking ... look straight ahead. Ignore that weird bloke sitting on the floor; we'll get the ushers to remove him . Don't let anything spoil your special day."f

This is very impressive for ISO 3200, by the way. The noise is not too intrusive as it might have been on a camera with smaller sensor cells.

She is SO beautiful! And her dress is divine - sorry I'm not a photographer. But it's a great photo!

Have you noticed how the red is captured in detail to practically each petal on the roses, the ties ( if I can call them red) and pocket rose. The picture gives the term £happily ever after" a physical definition.

Amazing dress too........
