Well done.
Why the need for the composite?

I had to composite the image because each person was lit individually.

Ah Ha, I've done that. Nicely done. Tripods are a pain but they do come in handy from time-to-time. :-D

Don't know if I can find the image easily; I did a composite with bride in the center of a stable and groom in several of the stalls.
Then another image with groom in the center and bride in several stalls.
As with your shot, each lit individually.

Its fun when there is time to do something creative.

Again, nice job.

BTW, are you looking at the new 200 units? I think they may be the cat's meow for receptions and fast moving bridal party portrait sessions.

Very nicely done. They do take a bit of effort but when done correctly like this composites make great images.

Thanks guys. It really didn't take all that much time. Five minutes for the shoot and ten minutes in PS. However I wish I had moved the groom (on the left) over just a bit so his body would cover the little bit of window behind him.

That would also have minimized his reflection in the mirror at the back of the room. Although that doesn't really bother me very much.

That part of the image is possibly dark enough to perhaps cloning it out of the picture is going to be just fine? Either way it's not that distracting to me. Well done.

Did you try cloning it out? Does not look like it would make any difference in the shot itself and just take away from noticing it. Nice job on the post processing.

The only nitpicky thing I could see would be lack of any kind of shadow from the guy on the right. Again, quite inconsequential though. Love that game room, what fun!

EDIT: One more, the lighting on their faces are coming from different angles along the 3 gentlemen on the left, I guess the one that stands out is the farthest guy out along that line.

Nice shot. Any chance you can post one of the original shots.


Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
