Love the focus on the giraffe and to feel them both moving & moved. Superb portrait & souvenir - seems the animal herself would love to hug t°° ;)

Ha! Very good! Great capture of the moment. I'm sure the giraffe just wants to wish them a long and happy life together!

You really have caught a tender and loving kiss here, by this couple.
A great shot.

It's a soft moment of love and the sweetness of the photo is perfectly convenient for the feelings.

He waqs just checking that the brides eyelashes weren't bigger than his!

I guess you want us to look at the giraffe rather than the couple.
Different. But for me, I prefer a focus on the couple (well, that's just my personal taste) :)

Hi Dulcie ... oh what a fabulous candid! I can't believe the synchronicity ... I shot this one last weekend ...
20 Oct 2010 10:24am
What a lovely picture!
20 Oct 2010 11:54am
She is jealous, she wants a kiss too:)) Splendid image. Beautiful day.

LOL.....at the wedding all of the guests should have an opportunity to kiss the bride! Well seen and captured Dulcie! ;-)

Love this compo , but not these tones for this occasion . Pure BW I see as more suitable here. Yet, this couple should be focused , not background . Let me know what you think of this critiques ?

@Mariana Maodush: I always appreciate your critiques, Mariana. :-) I agree this shot could have been made in B&W.
I was more caught up in the silliness of the scene rather than the formal depiction of the couple.
Thank heavens I was not the principal photographer for this wedding, so I COULD make some silly and irreverent shots. So, yes, the tone and the focus is much about the nosy giraffe, and the bride and groom get short shrift. (But, I have more photos of them to come.) Thanks so much.
A very beautiful B&W shot !

marvelous portrait. i love the tones
20 Oct 2010 3:32pm
what a fun photo!! i bet the couple will love it!
20 Oct 2010 4:37pm
I've been expecting a photo of the bride and groom but never, never did I expect there to be a giraffe with them! Perfectly whimsical shot - excellent!
20 Oct 2010 4:55pm
wow, terrefic shot
20 Oct 2010 8:19pm
Lol..isn't three óne too much?..
Beautiful shot again!
20 Oct 2010 9:12pm
Oh, this time as many before on other pages I did a mistake - I never read the title . I always look at the picture expecting to get a story . I really did not see this giraffe, but I though of some weird tree !
Now, with your reply and reading title I see the purpose of your shot - just a fun :) Sorry for not seeing this giraffe !
20 Oct 2010 9:20pm
Just a great catch, on your part !!!! seems you were definitely in the right place, at the perfect time!!!
21 Oct 2010 12:57am
That's a wonderful photo Dulcie, a romantic moment beautifully captured... I really love that nosy, very special guest...
21 Oct 2010 2:27am
Wow, what an amazing shot! The giraffe in the background is fantastic and the kiss is,too!
21 Oct 2010 2:53am
Marvellous capture, I wonder what the giraffe thinks as he seems to be very interested. Wonderful processing, I think you got a very fitting tone to that motive.

Amusing scene for a bridal

Would so love to see this in color. Three-way, eh? And note the groom properly attired. You are catching a very hilarious KISS.
