Beautiful images. The BW turned out very well. The last shot, although against the forum guidelines, is great. I love it. Now, let's pretend I didn't see it. That way no rules are broken.....right?

Thanks Cal! I knew I was being naughty by posting that last one. I just really like it and wanted to share it.

The conversion excellently concentrates the attention on the hands & rings, and removes the distraction of the colour of the flowers. Great!.

I was looking at the B/W and Color ones thinking what it would look like with the flowers left in color. Then there it was! I am glad calr didn't see it so you could share. One of the many advantages to this forum is exploring and sharing and trying new things. Thanks

Great shot. And nice use of symbolism too.

If this shot had been taken at my wedding I would have it hanging on the wall for sure.
