i like the concept, but it lack some umf.
not mine, btw.
lots of stuff going on.. shallower DOF would be nice to kinda get rid of the busyness of the background..
I really like it though.
its too dark..
not all of your subjects are looking into the camera hence them getting lost into the rest of the crowd.
you should've panned the camera w/ a slow shutter as the bride went passing by.
needs moar tilt shift
Took me a while to actually realise the bride was there
i really like that photo
i want to take heaps of stuff like that when i go to NYC
too busy, IMO
Needs bride in front of groom to pull attention to subject. Could also have bride and groom closer.
not enough focus on the subject, way too busy. You shouldnt have to look for the bride in a photo.
There are things that you can do in PP to salvage the shot, but ultimately, re-shooting is the best option.. I like the concept, but I think the execution was done poorly.
took me a long time to realize there was a wedding in this picture...
Too dark, too busy and lack of subject.
Pic blocked for anyone else?
There is so many things wrong with that picture its not even funny.
I am guessing some tourist shot that pic while crossing the street.
Only an HDR shot could save it...
i think it's kinda blah as well, but it was good enough to make the new york times.
well now it makes sense. i can understand why the PJ photog couldnt do some of the things i would have wanted to do, since this image wasnt staged.
lolololol i remember seeing that couple getting their shots taken
the two photogs make sense now
contrast too high, should have used a strobe too for fill
I tend to agree with those saying that the photo is too busy, lacks an appropriate DOF, and has a poorly positioned subject. Ideally, it should be re-shot, but as that is not a possibility, I think the best way to salvage this shot, as overdone and cliche as it is, would be to desaturate the background. At least that will draw your eye to the subject.
Quick 30 second rendition.... spend a few minutes and it may be a usable shot?!
Don't really like how the groom is muggin the shot. If he wasn't i think it would be def better
if he were looking straight ahead it would make it much better...
not allowed in photojournalism. You can crop, do slight color corrections and thats it.
The person that took that was a staffer for the washington post
