The Top 50 Engagement Photos Of 2018

Tinted Photography Report

Willy Chan 9 months ago

This is not a photo, at best it is heavily composited from multiple items. If this was an "art" contest that would be fine, but not for a photography contest. The sky is basically pasted in then flipped for the reflection effect for the water. In order to take a shot of the milkyway you would be taking a 20-30 second exposure. There is no way two people would be able to stand perfectly still for 20 seconds, nor would the dress be positioned like that with the back part of the dress hanging in mid air for 20 seconds. Also, astrophotography shots are typical shot with an ultrawide angle lens to allow for longer exposures without star trails and motion of the milky way, which would mean the people who were on the horizon would be severely pushed to the background and would be tiny in the frame. The perspective here is closer to a "normal" angle of view. There are tonnes of other issues with this image. Here is a photo which I have taken of the milky way, picture the couple on the horizon.

Now this is a photo with love in it. the composition is a bit plain, and the shirts could be something other than the color of the bed, but the subject is amazing, good position and genuine feel of love and compassion. Photographer should have lit the subject on the right a little better, but good placement of hands and arms, good sense of softness with the emotion coming out.

Good colors, but too much loss on the top and use of Photoshop. A tighter scene in the rule of thirds might save this image.

Ethereal, otherworldly, interesting use of light and shadow. No real emotions to speak of between the subjects though.

Not a huge fan of this image. It feels like a cosmetics/makeup advertisement to me.
