DIVORCE, PART I

That is her actual wedding dress, and that is his actual wedding ring (but not his hand). This is a composite of three separate shots. Lots of photoshop, obviously: contrast masking, texture, blur, desaturation, and a hint of green color cast added, along with the usual exposure and sharpness adjustments. Also, the original had a straighter composition and more space around the edges. I decided to crop it (using the HD video aspect ratio) with a tilt and cut off portions of the elements within the frame to try and create a rougher, out-of-control feel. Note also that Russians wear their wedding rings on the right hand.
