Last Steps  by Marcelle Raphael

281 Views Nikon D70 Black/White Texturized
This is an image I just had fun playing with. I tossed it as a junker in 2008 and did not present it to the bride. After going back through some more images, I found this one, said “hmmmm”, cropped, texturized and here it is…. I sent it to the bride. She LOVES it!

    It is very beautiful!

  • Thank you! It’s from a wedding I did in 2007. I’m on this kick of looking through all the images that I discarded. This was one.

    Well I sure hope you gave this one to the bride! :-) She looks stunning.

  • lol. Nope! It’s been over four years and I had originally considered this a junker. I just tagged her with it on facebook. LOL.

    I love it – not a junker ! Look how the wind takes her hair…
    I like how she looks up – it adds a spiritual dimension, I think.
    The processing is really great too ! xx

  • Ulla, I wish I could take you everywhere I go for all the positiveness you exude all the time! Thank you!
