    A scene right out of a Bollywood musical number, from the camera angle of a blessing angel. The lovers’ bodies at a diagonal against the backdrop of blossoms, their bare feet, the flare of the woman’s skirt in the shape of a flower—all bathed in morning light—give the scene its idyllic feel.

    I agree with Elizabeth's comments. There is almost a swirling effect to the composition. Stunning, eye catching and ultimately also beautiful.

    Perfect Bollywood style shot for a wedding album. Loved the way u did it  ,  making light , scene , posture, background complementing each other.

    It is good frame but not spontaneous. It looks 'composed' and artificial.


    However must appreciated for wedding album. Thank you for sharing.

    @Sourav Howlader  Yes it is composed , but the love they have for each other isn't artificial as the couple here arenot bollywood actors who can act they are normal people like you and me . Anyhow It has been mentioned clearly in the above description that the scene has been created as it was a pre-wedding shoot . Do read carefully before commenting . Thanx for the appreciation.

    @Ankit Narang I agree with you Ankit, it is a scene, but a beautiful one, that represent love, care, emotions. You cannot make this shot spontaneous, especially at the wedding. It is very beautiful!
