photoblog image Traditional Bride and Groom

Traditional Bride and Groom

The traditional wedding involves a meeting of the elders from both families and having discussions in Edo, paying the dowry (which is now just a token amount), and giving the bride to the groom.

Etomi this is a lovely lovely shot, I can see U used the sepia tones on the 350D, quite nice. Have u tried combining sepia tones with the different filters, it gives the image a kinda duotone.
E Etomi: I took this pic in colour Asiko.Do you mean Cs2 filters> I'll give it a try next time. Thanks
