About the Image(s)

I just came back from an overseas trip to Sri Lanka, where I was born, after attending a wedding of a close relative. After the customs were completed, the couple came out of the building, where the ceremony was held, and released a few pigeons. This shows releasing of two pigeons. There is a person behind the couple inside the building. I didn't bother to remove her. Like to see how I could improve the photo.

Sam, welcome home and welcome to DD#24. I love the expressions you caught on the couple's faces. Your lighting, focus and exposure are spot on. Having the flowered arch and doorway in the center is not as important as giving the couple and pigeons space to release. I suggest cropping the left side, which is negative space making the space about the couple's joyful ceremony. Dr. Jim   Posted: 10/08/2019 12:45:27

I like how you got the instant that the couple let the doves go. I love the facial expression on the faces. This image really tells a story. Well done

Luckily, the couple released a number of pigeons. I had my camera in rapid burst mode and captured a number of shots. This is one of the photos taken.   Posted: 10/09/2019 17:16:21
