Won't you accompany me for life....

By LittleRockPhoto
Taken with 105-300 Sigma lens mounted on my Nikon D7000. I am asking for input on how this one could have been composed differently? Keep in mind that the bride was hiding the dotted yellow line where she was positioned.

welcome to our community Robert, in my opinion there is nothing wrong with the composition as is, the bride is nicely separated from the background, positioned well in the frame, good detail in the dress, left arm is a little awkward, a bouquet in her hand would have helped here. all in all a good image.

Hi and welcome to EPZ.

It is a nice picture overall.

I think one of the most important elements here, apart form the posing, the positioning, the background, the props, is the actual point where the bride is looking at. No offense meant, but she looks like she is waiting a puppy to go to her. I think she should be looking straight to the camera or at least to a height we would expect her beloved person to be (supposedly the same?)

An alternative posing could be one that she walks away from the camera and turns 1/4th of the upper torso and head to invite her other half into walking with her towards the future...

All the best to them.
