I have had the opportunity to be present at Slovak wedding in the church. Young bride was beautifull and a bit sad. Sadness was short and unusual.

HI Stefan

I also tend to think she just has drifted away in thought rather than that she is sad. I hope it is like that anyway! It is a lovely photo

Hi Stefan, Lovely image, she is deep in thought. Beautiful softness about the photo, yet sharp where needed..

Just lovely.. well done.

kind regards

She is VERY beautiful, Stefan. The impression I get from the image is one of her just being deep in thought for a moment rather than sad. (But I wasn't there.) You managed the light very well. POV and DOF enhance the quality even more. Well done! TFS! - Cordelia :)

Yes, she does look sad - but I hope her heart isn't breaking and that she is happy now.
She is beautiful, and I love her gown. Us ladies looks at the dress, and it is very simple and plain, and I like the pink lace and how it is placed on one side of her bodice.
Stev, this is a lovely image,
Thank you

nice capture of the bride

Hi Stefan

You have really captured a beautiful moment. Sad of thoughtful? I think she looks thoughtful.... mind elsewhere for whatever reason. Stunning camera work. Into my favourites!
