I think this shot is in perfect TE style: it gives us an image oj Japan tradition - with grace and simplicity - and a beautiful example of using colors and contrast!

I commented once this lovely picture a long time ago, but it desappeared.
Thank you for posting it again. It's always a pity when images are gone, toegether with all the comments & critiques you got...
I will try to repeat my comment at the time - I especially loved the different material / fabrics used for the dress, the pure shinny white of the under clothes, and the pattern and relief on both the upper parts of the ceremony dress in different tones of white, all being made of silk I think?
And then... Her pose of course! Like a bit shy, almost sad, wonderful!
The quality of this image is excellent, crisp and clear, all toegether wonderfully framed, congratulations!
Amicalement - Viviane

Outstanding portrait. Picture balance can't be better and the moment captured neither. Well done,

very beauty and impressive portrait! The wonderful white kimono and the tones of the face of the bride are very beauty! The expression of the girl, with close eyes too, are great!
Very well done, regards,

Unique capture with the women's head covered with white .. White swan though rather rired and sad that happy.. maybe that was only the moment.. maybe Japanese sense of emotional expression.. Anyway, tender and calm, unusual portrait..
with regards, Agnieszka

Truly a stunning photo.
Overall very tidy approach that preserves her moment of bliss.
Composition is very good, especially with this level of zoom. It really lets us indetify with this bride, we even get a slight impression what she is feeling at this moment.
Exposure looks good and overall quality looks great.
Thank you for sharing.

Excellent crop. I love that the shot is so sharp, that you can enjoy details such as the different textures of the different layers of the kimono. Excellent portrait showing the emotions of the bride. Regards, Yvonne
