Image of the Week Returns

My image this week is from a recent wedding in July. My bride, the now Manina Bush was relaxing before the nuptials. I am not a photojournalist so this is not a grab shot. I asked her to look out the window. The pose was all her own. I captured this image with a Nikon D300 at ISO 800 at F4.0 at 1/40 sec. This image can be captured several different ways. If I wanted to tone down the flair from the window and get more detail in the dress I  could have sped up the shutter but the bride herself would have been underexposed. This is the balancing act that photographers encounter at every wedding. You lose something to gain something. I lost a little of the dress but I gained I believe a better overall image.
