Congratulations to FotoHouse for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 3 votes - View Previous Winners


I proudly present this photo: Engagement.

This is one of my more intimate works w/ the primary reason being that it is...well, a portrait of my soon-to-be wife. And although I had personally preferred this shot being more candid and less processed...she requested that it had a high-fashion yet avant garde setting. As for interest, the colors purple and blue were selected to convey certain hidden expressions. Purple represents the essence of devotion needed to sustain learning how to love, also mystery to the uncertainties of marriage, and the dark yet beautiful side of the light. Blue emphasizes the lighter side defining faith, trust, and confidence to commitment. There is a double subject matter where the attention travels between her and the engagement ring. Her head is slightly tilted to invoke the suspension of being ready, but at the same time unsure what awaits--or at least the gesture we were after. The bokeh from defocusing the dress allows for a more shimmering effect when the eyes read from the ring into her face or vice versa. Even though she is not a professional model...I felt she did very well and more than happy with the results--her being happy makes me happy. I hope many of you can enjoy this image and let it resonate with you. Thanks for viewing.

The colors are rich and vibrant. I like the way it flows, the balance, and a bokeh to die for. Thanks for sharing.

Well done! I love the fact that you put a lot of thoughts into creating the image. Nice play with purple and blue colors too. What matters most is the happiness of your client, in this case, your soon-to-be wife. She put much trust and faith in you, and surely must be very happy with the outcome. Congrats on successfully creating this image and your soon-to-happen marriage.

I've learned from winning awards, it's more than putting your finger on the shutter and hoping to get lucky. The best images usually has a story--translating that story through imagery is what is difficult.

Thank you! I am not too happy with how fm upload posterizes the lifts--will need to upload via link from my actual site for true quality fidelity.

I didn't expect for this to be featured given the lack of interest from the forum--or at least appeared that way. And also because it was a rough post where the image doesn't adhere to it's full quality at all.

Thank you. I'm honored.

Love the narrative behind the photo. The shot speaks volumes even without the story behind it.

Congratulations and best wishes to both of you! Keep on clicking and sharing.
