    Ok, I vote for #12 – great moment, great composition. BUT, #8 was a very close second!

    • Nancy Marshall says:

      #8 – The bride and groom’s energy seems to be reflected in the sky. Are those clouds real? In any case, it’s a cool photo.

      I also like #9 – appears very natural, but still well composed.

      • Brittany says:

        I would of course have to say #13! #8 is also awesome…very classy!!!

        • Tonya Miller says:

          #10—love the motion, the real life situation, the spontaneity (& the subjects :))

          #14–same reason (i don’t know these ppl tho, but i love their personality which shine in this pic)

          Dave–it really is impossible to choose because all of them are fanatsic for different reasons.

          • Brad says:

            #8- Great pic of Beau & Jules!

            • Allyn Gick says:

              #2 for sure! I just think it is a breathtaking shot. I loved every one of their pics I saw. Love the colors and composition. (#12 was the other that really caught my eye. )
              …but #2 is my pick

              • Matt Ferguson says:

                I like number 1, that’s my vote. I also think number 8 is a nice image. Nice work on the clouds, it really frames everything nicely.

                • Looks like Julia and Beau are pulling ahead, but there’s still plenty of voting time left, so don’t be shy!

                  As for the question about the clouds – they are very real. Very little post production was necessary. Other than the RAW conversion in PS, it was very nearly straight out of the

                  • Sara French says:

                    #12 is my favorite for obvious reasons…but I would definitely say #8 is a close 2nd

                    • Johnny K says:

                      # 7 gets my vote…I am a sucker for the lighting.

                      • Kenny says:

                        #8 – “A Classic Wedding” – Beau and Julia’s Wedding

                        Great pic, Dave.

                        • Katie Bucklin says:

                          #8 because it is an actual wedding photo but I really love the composition of #12, too! I’m a sucker for bridge photos!

                          • Tara says:

                            #10. I love their smiles. They look so happy!
