Thanks I enjoy hearing what people think and views on how a image is perceived.
Thanks

Very nice Concept!

I do find the words on the left a bit jarring though. Maybe using a relevant religious text ?

The shadow effect worked well. I can't say the text choice is great. Yeah, I know a lot of those words go right along with today's modern marriage arrangement. However vulgar, noisey, et. al are words associtated with a wedding day. I assume a band, the definition of love, and a heart shaped shadow all speak of a wedding picture. It wasn't so long ago someone else posted a picture of a ring in a Bible. I believe the text in that picture was equally ironically inappropriate for wedding day memories.

I agree, if I was doing this for someone else (let's say wedding) I would use a softer text or even create my own...but seeing how this is my wedding ring, almost every word describes the last ten years, but a good ten years at that, but as in any relationship you have your soft good moments, and your brash hard moments. My wife saw the photo and laughed about all the words and says that she thinks I hit the nail on the head. lol....tomorrow will make ten years for us, there is the first corner stone.

Congrats on the first 10. NOW the image becomes great. See its all about subjectivity. Its all irony and tongue-in-cheek. Knowing the story makes me love it even more. For a wedding wrong text, but for a 10 yr long marriage ever so appropriate. Thanks for putting the story together and making it so sensable.

Nice execution. I wonder how it would look with both rings.
Congrats on your anniversary. Nice to hear that it's been a good one.

Thanks, i thought of that but the only problem is her rings are a little too much (not simple), but I might try and see if I can come up with a different layout
