This is one of my images from a wedding I done for Chloe & Reece. The wedding ceremony and reception was at the Woodlands Hotel Broughty Ferry, a great location for a wedding they have some great grounds.

Hi Colin thank you for your reply. I don't usually post here as I feel my work is not as good as some of the other incredible images that grace these pages. I do love to look at other peoples work and see what they are up to, its a great way of getting ideas.

Anyway here is a couple more. hope you like them.

It took me a while to build up the courage to post images here. Because the general standard is very high, it can be a bit intimidating. But I think it's good to post images and putting together photographs that are good enough to show is a worthwhile challenge.

I've built up enough confidence to feel my better stuff stands up OK here. It pales into complete insignificance beside the best images that are displayed on POTN... but it's OK enough for me not to be embarrassed by it and posting it helps me improve. I think it's important to show your work and yours is more than good enough.


Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.

Thank you for your comment It is very intimidating to post your images beside some extremely talented and high end photographers on this forum. You never know the type of reception you will receive.

And thank you once again for taking time to look and reply to my post. I may post some more in the future.

If you make it obvious that you have a grossly exaggerated opinion of yourself and of the quality of your photographs, you might get roughed up a little here on POTN.

No risk, otherwise, and the worst you will probably encounter is some good advice on how to improve your images ... delivered without savagery.

You certainly shouldn't feel like that. There are photographers on here from all levels and I think your work has the ability to stand by itself.

No matter how good you become in the future there will always be those that are better. Keep in mind too that 'better' is relative. You might look at someone else's work and, while it's different than yours, does that necessarily make it better?

Post away, Gordon. Never worry about being good enough. This isn't a competition. Not to mention that you might pick up a few tips to improve this or that aspect of your shooting.

Thank you for your kind comment and taking the time to look. I am sure I will post more often.

Your images stand up with the majority of wedding togs on here Goggs (rhyme fully intended). Yes there are some great images on here, but, generally speaking, you only see their best shots. The bread and butter shots are left out of the portfolio and what gets shared. Generally, they will edit all shots for contrast, sharpness and colour, but reserve the very best from a shoot of 1000+ images for extensive "Wow" factor shots. If they didn't, it would take months to fully edit everything they give the couple to that standard. And as they probably do a gig (or two) a week, they'll have more wow shots to post on their website, FB, Flickr or on here. You are putting yourself down. Your shot's are as good as mine. Only little niggles are too much vignette, and highlights on the ring finger. In the "Post your best shot' on the wedding talk forum, there are lots of images like yours and mine. Congratulations on some great captures. Easily worth £5-600.00 if you were doing this for a paying client.

Excellent photos! What kind of flash/lighting did you use? It worked out perfectly.

I understand being intimidated to post photos but people are very helpful. I think your photos are great and you should keep posting them. I'm a total newbie, usually hanging on by my finger nails, as far as learning. I've posted some real messes in the critique forum in my quest to improve. I have gotten some great tips and feedback on improving.
