Wanted to share one of my favorite shots from 2014 - that my wife took - while I was shooting a wedding on Michigan ave in Chicago, IL. She said she was trying to get some blur action behind us, then saw this crazy vehicle coming and was frantically adjusting her camera to try to capture the madness. She got her settings just in time. And for reference also attached is the shot I took - not great. Wifey showed me up.

Is this the husband/wife team that shoots Canon and Nikon? (One half of the team each dedicated to a different camera system?)

Maybe that explains the vast difference in photography styles and why one shot has such poor color saturation. (It almost looks sepia or monochrome!) LOL!

Seriously, this is a fun thread. Is it just me or does the jepabst shot in front of the bride/groom with the skyline and street behind them almost have a 3D, sort of toy perspective like the couple were "dropped into" the scene in photoshop? Don't get me wrong, it's a great shot, I'm just wondering how you got the shot to have sort of a surreal quality to it. Twilight Zone perhaps?
