No takers on my shots to see how I'm doing? Anyone care to comment to see how the pics are? Steve

The pictures look great to me. They will be REALLY happy with them. I thought it was kind of funny in the 3rd picture though, the guy on the right looks like he wants to kill the guy in the middle haha.

You'd get a better response if you posted some pics - people don't want to click away from the forum for a number of reasons.
Ha ok joe, cheers Ratjack

Creativity is good. Many are out of focus, soft and overexposed. What equipment are you shooting?

Mmmm thanks it was the 60d with the canon f2 100mm, any advice to make them better. Soft?, i am finding the 100mm hard to get right focus wise, it seems to hunt, and fixes on varied things. maybe i should try shoot over f8 instead of under f4 which i have been doing?
same comments as the others, however they are better than the older sets.
or this one is you didn't cut off the groomsmen
or this one not dead center but on the third point adding much needed negative space to the left
i would highly recommend shooting more closed down sometimes, especially if you often miss so much focus. you can always add background blur in post to other techniques to isolate the subject. iso needs to be as low as possible. f4 will usually be plenty to grab the couple or a portrait, but for the group shots it may not be enough, especially through a longer lens.
overall i'm sure the couple will be happy, we have a much more critical eye.
Thank you so much as i want to perfect evrything cheers

Cheers Phil, how can i get evrything pin sharp? The 100mm is great but really focuses on a certain things and seems to grab it...Am i better just rolling manual focus everytime... or should i shoot over f4 to try not get as much bokeh? When the lads say some shots are soft do they mean its not pin sharp? Also post processing? Is it not always to vignette and just use simple colour grade if any? Steve
I wouldn't do any most of the time, but that is just me..

you need to be aware of how close you are to your subject and the DOF a certain f stop will give. f4 would be perfect in some instance and others not enough. i would also suggest you use a higher shutter speed, a few of your images, notably the wedding party shot above, suffer motion blur.
