    Those are often the best shots! Do you mind if I ask how you got the background so white? I think having the background free from other clutter/distractions adds so much to the effect created by the "dreamy" DOF and great expression on her face! Was there coincidentally a white wall behind her?

    Yep, that's my family room's white wall, but it was not by accident. I always try to eliminate distractions when composing. There was an outlet just out of frame to the left and a table to the right. I shot this at 50mm f/2.

    Seriously, I really like the the clever DOF you selected, the perfect framing of those baby blues on the top third and that expression is a beauty.
    BTW, the bride is a really good B&W image as well.
    Thanks Steve :-) I could stare at those baby blues all day!

    That is a bore through your soul look that only a wife can give.

    We where looking through some older photos when we passed this shot. My girlfriend insists that I share this shot, because she claims that I always make this face when being the co-driver. I really don't... I think

    Scary times driving with her

    I'm more interested in that car.. Looks clean!
    Adobe, give us courage to edit what photos must be altered, serenity to delete what cannot be helped, and the insight to know the one from the other.
