Judges Comments: Nice image with strong emotion with spontaneity.
This is a powerful moment. The elderly man’s expression as he sees the bride, likely for the first time before the ceremony, works together with an all-important detail – her hand grasping his wrist with a gentle squeeze, just enough touch to wrinkle his skin. Their paired hands lead our eyes directly to his eyes where we can linger for a moment to consider its impact.
