Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

But I don't understand what the gentlemen do ?

@Hiro: Thats some chimney sweeps in traditional working dresses. There are even lucks symbols here. (If you rub a chimney sweep three times by hand, you'll be lucky for a year) This bows here are parts of there tools. The woman just fixes a heart-ballon on the front arch. The bride and groom will go through the arches after the ceremony.

Marjolein from Enkhuizen, Netherlands

A beautiful b/w with remarkable red shoes. A long time ago I read a book called 'the red shoes', which I believe you have also read. :-))

@Marjolein: I know just a Hans Christian Andersen fairytale with this name. But this here was a spontaneous idea. Because her shoes were really in excactly this red in middle of all that black there. Have a nice weekend :)

Benkirane Thami from Fès, Morocco

Excellente mise en scène rehaussée par l'effet de la désaturation!

Wonderful capture with the excellent selective color. The red for ladybugs? Ladybugs are also lucky symbols, I think.
