very nice, you might want to play with skin tone in 3.

this is my quick hack at it I increase saturation adjusted the WB played a bit with the curves to me it gives it a more natural color to in in your original file i looked like it had a yellow shade to it

They all look at least a little soft to me. Im guessing that is due to compression?

White balance is way off on first and last.

Agreed about them looking soft.

#1: Not sure what you were tying to go for. Looks like she's looking at someone off to the side and her hand/arm is cut off. There's something also on the floor of the tub.

#2: Decent shot.

#3: Weird angle. Part of the chair is distracting. Hot spot from a secondary light source towards the upper left. (?)

ooooo... ok.. I will try that.. I haven't really edit the file.. this is the original out of the camera.. I just want to see how I should edit this. Some people like it soft color.. some people like the nice color contrast.

Yeah the room has fluorescent lighting..

Thanks and I agree look more natural...

I thought wedding photos need to be soft? or is it just depending on the photographer style how to edit them? I'ms till unsure about this..

#1: is it the rug distracting? I can remove the rug perhaps.. I just thought the tub looks unique and the bride up for laying on it

#2: Thanks

#3: this is when her bestfriend giving her backrub before the ceremony start, I just thought they look so cute.. I'm still practicing and need more guidance using external flash.. i think that's what happened.. or that might be the light from the window too? I'm pretty sure I bounce it 45 degree to the wall..

anyway you think I should crop the top of the chair? lemme try and see what it's look like.

Thanks Nicksan.

Do you still have the RAW files? Edit those and then process.

You can always soften sharp photos in post. You cant make soft focused shots sharper in post. Make the clearest images you can and then alter at will.

I do not get why she is in the bathtub ... and do you have any other pictures? I'm curious to see more of the set.

I've seen bathtub shots executed to perfection. It can be interesting if it's done right.
