~Happiness in Union~

My best friend's and their happiness after a fine ceremony of union.
The day was hectic with lots of running around and rain, rain, rain.
As we ventured closer to Clearwater Beach-Honeymoon Park.....the weather looked not so good. Yet it stopped raining.
After the ceremony and taking pictures and just celebrating the clouds cleared and the sun was setting beautifully over the horizon.
And this is a capture of that moment. The sun setting and bathing my friends with its warm glow.

pp-crop of the original...my other friends are in the other half of this pict. Anyway, wanted to seperate them into two couples. Some color adjustment in curves and highpass filter for some added sharpening.

ps-colors....look a bit muted....hmmmm....since settting up my epson printer R1800 my color profiles seem to be off for online imagery...not sure if that makes sense...but my images(well along with jpg compression) have been less saturated.

Bello retrato, refleja que están muy felices.
Bien la composición, la claridad en general y el colorido.
Felicitaciones Michael.

Hi Michael! Long time no see! Wonderful portrait of your friends, with the perfect light. I like the setting, very casual, seems to go well with this couple. And her smile is very contagious! I wish we could see more of the heart drawn on the sand, though. Hope things are good with you!!! See ya around!

Lovely moment, nice photo, very clear.

I agree with Tournesol her smile is very contagious... It also looks like he is having a hard time holding it in! :) They look very happy...
I like the way they are centered in the heart!

Good to see you, Michael. Very nice picture full of happiness of the moment. Nice use of the environment to make a very nice portrait of this happy couple. I like her bare feet peeking under her dress. Well done!

nice shot! I like her expression. Very genuin and not for the camera. Nice warm lighting too. Great jog.

Nice moment, Michael. I think the cropping did well for the balance of the photo.

Hi Michael, A very kind & warm feeling! Mood of joy that hard to describe in words... Great tribute for your best friend!


Beautiful candid portrait, full of exuberance. Marvellous capture. The picture says it all.


The joy shines on this picture! The light is beautiful. The naked feet of the bride, and her generous laugh, give to the pic its special mood. The composition is good. Congratulations,
