Re: "Giant step for mankind"

I guess I'll play Simon Cowell here.

This doesn't work for me. The foreground objects doing the framing are in too sharp of focus. They distract from the couple, leaving me wondering which is the subject. The rest of the people: I see a lot of backs and no clear faces. All in all, the people are too small to maintain my interest. The idea is a good one, but I feel it simply is not well executed. Conceptually, I'm struggling with why the bride and groom are framed by a pair of what I'm told are feet. If not for the explanation, I'd have just wondered what sort of sculpture you were hiding behind to take what appears to be a paparazzi type, surreptitious photo of the wedding.

If, in my lifetime, I will have produced just one image that makes a real difference in the life of another, I will have achieved my highest goal as a photographer.
