Behind the curtain of a wedding photo

This photo I am showing you here was taken with my 50mm Lens on my Nikon D2x, ISO 100, 1/25 shutter and 3.2 aperature. I was on the second floor of a big building with a wide open window behind the bride. We had almost but not quite direct sun streaming in onto her from behind and to my right. It was about 2:30 in the afternoon so the sun was way high in the sky. You can see the tree tops in the back ground out of focus because I was shooting at 3/2 Aperature and they were about 100 yards away. I had one of the brides maids hold a reflector low and bounce light right back onto the Brides body and face. so the reflector was bouncing exactly opposite of the sun light. (Thank Megan!!!) Here is a behind the scenes photo of me taking the photo (thanks Danielle!!) and the final version of it. I worked it in lightroom 3.2 beta and made it B/W with just a hint of brown/yellow added to the dark areas for warmth.
