I saw this photo this morning, good idea on how not to do it:

it took me a good 10 seconds to realize they were sitting on the guy's legs... I thought they were just little people.

This looks to be a snapshot of a guest. The people on the picture look to camera left, most probably towards the wedding photographer. From that point of view it MAY not look THAT awkward... :D

And one legged guests! That threw me off for a minute as well...

I though it was nice that the photographer managed to get the building in the BG......particularly well done given all that open area to the right.

...as has been pointed out: they are looking at the offical photographer...who has that open area to the right in frame and no building in the background. The shot is probably a snapshot by a guest.

And I couldn't actually figure out what I was looking at until I read the thread! Talk about a real world optical illusion!

LOL, is that what you take away from that image? Way to bury the lead!

I was referring to the photographer the took the image in question......just not good framing.

Others have commented adequately on the other stuff, I didn't want to simply repeat the comments....I was pointing out the disadvantages that the "me too" GWC is at and how his image is spoiled by being a "me too twat".

:):)
