    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 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.

    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?! :dunno:

    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
