Default Cowboy Wedding

The bride requested this pose. I agree with her.... I liked it.

Taken with a Pentax K-30 using a SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 ED AL [IF] DC WR lens. ISO 800, 1/45th @ f:8

Not traditional but if they wanted it and like it then you did the job... and got control of the light with just enough on her.

Interesting concept!

For me, with this image it's all about the lines. The lines of the door and also their bodies. I'd try in Photoshop to square out the door frame. The image was probably not taken square to the frame and its warped the frame. Then I'd burn down all the stuff above the door the make everything in the dark area go black, with no detail.

Finally I know it's easy to say afterward, but their body placements could have been helped a bit. For me I don't like that her back is not straight. Her right arm needed to go in a bit more so her hand would be further behind him. Her head needs to be tilted up just a touch, and his head tilted up a touch as well. His hat is merging with the top of her head. I'd also play in post, with maybe making the background go more white, to lessen the detail of the background. Don't know if that would help or not though.

Overall I like the idea of the image!

I like it, perfect for black and white.
Just enough detail in the silhouette.
