My first "all day" booking Midday `till 10pm.
I was dehydrated, hungry and tired.
My first go at off camera lighting for the first dance.
Learnt loads, not too many mistakes.
Any thoughts on these shots. Some are obviously plagerised from other members here.:oops:

Dress & shoes - beautiful!
Doorway - cute, but I would like it better straightened
Flowers - nice, but maybe crop a little off the bottom
Kiss on beach - I like it!
B&W - don't care for the expression on her face
Face under veil - a bit close up for my tastes.

#1 - Pretty good, just seems abit "muddy" to me
#2 - Agree with KathyH, I think it would be better straightened.
#3 - could be better with a tighter crop
#4 - is the best shot!
#5 - don't like her expression at all
#6 - a little to closeup!

1. I rather like this one. It has a vintage quality.
2. See Jeff & KathyH's comments.
3. Too much real estate at the bottom of this one. And I don't like the tilt.
4. I like it. A lot. A whole lot. :)
5. I simply don't like the expression and the PP on this one.
6. Back off a bit, and you'll have a winner. The closeness accentuates the lines in her face and the bit of a doublechin. Women can be sensitive about things like that.
And I don't think I'd worry to much about the plagiarism aspect. I've seen these shots repeated in one way or another over and over again on the digital wedding forum. Think of it as going with a trend. ;)

1 has a nice atmosphere. 4 is wonderful, I would not change a thing. I would not want to display 5, Her expression is not flattering and the graininess makes their skin look awkward.

Thanks for the comments guys. The beach "dip" is my favourite shot too! I realise I`m a bit close with the veil shot, I might use the liquify tool to get rid of the double chin!

The last 2 I don't like for basically the aforementioned reasons. The first one is very nice, the second one I like the best except for the tilt.. the third is a nice shot but I don't care for the tilt and so much extra foreground it is unbalanced. The fourth is very nice I would love to see it black & white.. it has a nice feel to it that I think could be captured best in black & white.. very classy shot, great composition. Using the liquify tool in the last one will be difficult because of the texture of the veil. Nice job overall!

I'll try to be a bit original in my C/C, so I'll avoid repeating what has been said in previous posts.
#1. Not fond of how the shoes are positioned. It could be the PP as well, but I can't make out easily how they are placed. It always takes me a few seconds to "see it".
#2. Not crazy about the posing. At least the arms are not hanging on each side of the body, but the bride is almost straight on. Put her at an angle and get her to stretch her head out, to soften the lines in her face and chin. Of course, there are multiple ways to achieve this and you need to find one that makes the bride look gorgeous.
#3. You need to rethink the composition on this one. The building in the background is light and competes for attention from the B&G. I don't like the posing of the groom at all.
#4. Best of the set by far. Well executed.
I'd personally trash #5 and 6.
Hope I'm not too harsh ;)
