Alessandro Baglioni | Alessandro Baglioni Photographer | Firenze Wedding Photographer
Strong image with great focus, moment, colours and interest. However, the subject matter is directly in the middle and one of the most interesting elements of the image (the face on the left) is awkwardly cropped.

Mark Wallis | Mark Wallis Photography | London Wedding Photographer
Superb capture. The body language combined with the dramatic lighting makes this image a masterful piece. / This is my absolute favourite shot but I could not give it full marks because of the cropping. I think this picture would become one of my all time favourites if you had cropped the top white ceiling and some of the left of the image. The focal point is so interesting I would go in closer. The white part of an image is the first thing that attracts the human eye and therefore the ceiling is only a distraction. But it still rocks what proves to be a difficult category of the competition.

Juliana Mozart | Juliana Mozart | Brazil Wedding Photographer
Moment well caught, amazing framing, great use of shapes with interest created between the geometric shapes of the architecture and the organic shapes of the people. The bride and groom create an interesting statuesque shape and there is a delicious play with light on the floor. / The dark silhouettes of the onlooker guests makes this image very surreal.

Chris Hartwig | Chris Hartwig | Marseille Wedding Photographer
This could have been a winner if the edge of the dress had not been chopped and the horizon was straight.

Adam Ludwik | Adam Ludwik Photography | Katowice Wedding Photographer
Strong reportage image, elegant and sophisticated. / The love and emotion is so palpable.

Gretchen McArthur | Fritz Photography | Portland Wedding Photographer
I love the situation but I don’t like the blown out details of the dress or the toning.

Kirsten Lewis | Kirsten Lewis Photographer | The Outer Banks Wedding Photographer
Great light, composition, colours and emotion. My favourite parts of the image are the speckles of dust and the bride’s expression.

Elaine Soong | Just Married Photography | Calgary Wedding Photographer
This is an example of an image which photographers will love but brides don’t choose for their albums. But the repetition of the triangle both at the top and bottomed (with the hands) make this a very clean and clever image.

Cristina Lima | Cristina Lima | Belo Horizonte Wedding Photographer
The composition is strong and there are many areas of the image which a fun to look at. A perspective from the floor looking up has elongated and flattered the couple and given us the possibility to see the ceiling. The ceiling looks like a galaxy of stars and planets and as a wonderful bonus there are interesting parts to the lower part of the images room.

This would have been the number one for me if it had been cropped differently. I love this image but there is too much skew space at the top.

John Lyons | John Lyons Weddings | Windsor Wedding Photographer
Timeless & classic. Personally I am not a huge fan of sepia but the image is close to perfect in its quiet naturalness.

Pedro Barros | Cristina Lima | Belo Horizonte Wedding Photographer
The colour treatment and the way the foil confetti is gently sitting on her shoulder make this image.

Daniel Poletto | Rejane Wolff | Campinas Wedding Photographer
One can feel the joy of the bride but the image has a few distracting elements at the top.
