Technique: D700 with 24-120 Nikkor lens at 120mm; 1000 ISO; conversion to mono in Silver Efex Pro.
(2021) UPDATE: I certainly didn’t have this interpretation of the shot in mind when I took it, nor when it was first posted here, 10 years ago now.
The other three people present are dark, placid even – and even I can see that the jeans on the left are not “natty gents’ wedding wear” – tho maybe for “The Younger Generation” this no longer matters, which is an attitude I wholeheartedly applaud.
But the person in the right foreground is bright and smart, probably in all senses of those terms, and elegant even – and that pose is nothing if not assertive.
