[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Originally shot in B&W. On a second thought, after taking into account the ambiance of a traditional home and a wedding in an ethnic Malay costume, I converted it into sepia and added more noise to enhance the rustic and classical look.

Shooting from a low angle has helped me to observe the Rule of Thirds where the focus of the subjects is well placed in the top 1/3 of the frame.

Thanking you in advance for viewing and your kind words.

Hello Agoes! Nice scene, very happy people. Nice lightness. Good BW effect. Very good POV and composition. Good luck!

Very nice picture - gentle black white - good perspective

Greeting from South Germany

Hi Agoes,
When I first saw it in thumbnails I thought it was a painting. Nice one!
This is a very beautiful and amazing shot you have. It's a very good idea of converting it to sepia. And even adding noise to it was wise. :)

Great job! I like it!


Super fine this is Agoes. The beautiful ethnic Malay costume is enhanced by the sepia treatment. Your composition is strong and powerful, sort of like a Malay version of Romeo and Juliet. Best regards

A sweet shot. You've done a great job with the placement of the couple within the framing elements - and an interesting POV.

Unfortunately, they do look a little uncomfortable at being so close to each other - the distance between their faces is barely the width of a hand, and while it looks great in a photograph, in life it feels a little awkward and I think they show that here.

Even so - I like your treatment of this!

  • Great
