This might be one of the few times a muted gray sky works in the photographer's favor—when it's filled with a soaring groom! This graphic black & white shot is full of charm, and it took some seriously on-point timing to capture such a great expression. Notice, too, all the triangles that help make the composition so powerful—the upraised arms of the "throwers," the almost perfectly symmetrical arms and legs of the groom, and even the facade of the church in the background. Those diagonals all make the image look as full of life and energy as the event must have felt to the men.
