I really like the pose and the arch framing them. The composition is excellent, and the fill light balance out the ambient very well. However, the post process lighting on the ground looks odd, and I can easily see the cloning part.

Thanks, the ground isn't cloned too much... just burned along the sides to give more of an appearance that the light is coming through. I did clone a couple areas to minimize the tracks of whatever vehicle was going through there... maybe I should replace the ground altogether. I don't like how I had his leg there either, but it's not a deal breaker for me. Thinking of entering this into competition.

I like the image very much overall. I do think the leg is up a big high but it doesn't bother me too much and is a small nitpick. I think there is too much foreground, but again, that is just a personal opinion. Well done, I'm sure they will love the photo.

Very painterly! Really like the sky and grass in the background, and the leg thing doesn't bother me too much either. I agree with Niccas9, the clients are going to love it for sure. Assuming it was for clients and not a model shoot!?

Yes, it was for clients... might try to enter this in a district PPA competition as well... I'd like to clean up the sand in the front a bit, might try some sort of composite...

Solid photograph --- great composition + control of the natural light!

If I needed to find something, I would call out the groom's posing --- it just doesn't seem like a powerful pose to me. I would have kept his leg down and had the bride step in between his legs with one of her legs to lower her height and also add a nice curve to her midsection.

Also, the repeating patterns on the ground from cloning stand out to me as well.

I agree with your thoughts about the tracks on the ground; I started to wonder who would be driving in there. I also checked out your site; a lot of terrific images there. Good luck in the competition.

As everyone else said, I couldn't stop looking at the leg. Gorgeous photo though.

Great photo! As with everyone's comment, the leg looks off.
