Yes, added to which I don't want to be taken to a whole lot of images. The OP should post just a couple of images and then he or she may receive meaningful critique.

To the OP - I don't mind clicking on a link to see your pics just for the record. I don't see why people get so upset about it.

I don't think people get upset about it - I'm certainly not but I was merely informing the OP why I didn't view his images. I still maintain it's more sensible to post a couple of pictures instead of a whole wedding.

Brutal lighting, lack of lighting, brutal shadows, feet cut off, blown whites, people that are too centered, are just a few things that I noticed. Overall these are ok snapshots but not something that I would expect from a first or second shooter.

My critique is that several of the shots, such as the bridesmaids (like when they were getting ready), they have slightly awkward expressions on their faces, like you caught them at an akward moment or something. I agree that you need to work on your flash technique ... also, could be the web compressoin or something, but a few of the shots seemed a bit soft.

That being said, I did see some good moments. Keep shooting!!

Fair enough, but I think that if the photos are all on the web anyway why not just look at all of them? Then you get a feel for the whole set of work and can see any traits that are common to all photos, or if specific problems only relate to individual photos etc. I certainly think it's worth critiquing a whole wedding album - it's pretty rare that anyone would see just 2 photos from a wedding set. If you only want to comment on 2 specific photos then you can still do that.

Sorry, maybe "so upset" was the wrong thing to say - didn't mean to be argumentative - I just don't see the problem with the OP linking to all his wedding photos.

^^^^^ That's what I'm talking about - you can't get comments like that from posting just 2 photos from a wedding set.

Next step: controlling your depth of field to draw the eye toward your subject. That means much wider apertures, backgrounds that are not right behind the subject, and more creative framing.

What lens(es) did you you use? Right now I'm not seeing anything that couldn't have been taken with a P&S camera

I won't go to a link instead of looking at a couple of photos.
The purpose of critique is to examine and comment on the quality and impact of a photo.
If you want comments on a web site or an album you should put it in the presentation or business section.
To assume that anyone wants to examine and comment on more than 3 or 4 photos is not, in my opinion, what critique is all about.
If I viewed a couple of photos and thought that it would be constructive to check out the rest of the album, then I would go out of the way to look and comment on the album.

Pick out your best, or a couple that you want or need particular advice on their content. You'll find that members are more likely to give advice.

It isn't that hard to post a couple of photos...really. :)

Calm down mate. If you don't want to comment on his photo album, don't - just move on to the next thread. Nobody is asking you personally to look at all his photos.

I think you did pretty good for your first wedding. The lighting looks a bit harsh to me on many shots though. Maybe try to work the flash a little better on the next one.

I think he can do what he wants to do:D I will wait until he figures out how to post some photos he really wants C&C on. Maybe the ones he just missed on, or his favorites.

Probably better that I didn't look at any of the photos.
I'm not particularly gentle with critique anyway.

I still maintain that asking for critique on an album of photos should be reserved for the buyers.

mate, this is a place for people to post stuff to ask for critique. The OP did that. If you don't want to critique it, don't. No need to keep telling everyone that you don't want to.

Move on son.
