Wow, e-sessions are not easy. First of all, they can be very awkward if you're not used to doing them. The girl has been a patient of mine since she was 10. She knew I dabbled a little bit in photography, so I bit off a little more than I can chew. I have the utmost respect for all of u guys who do this.

I don't think you did too bad! The last shot is the only one that seems like a throw away one to me.

Thanks Jerefish, no hdr on that one, although I did add a few more clouds to add more drama.:)

Some are nice others not sure about the angles etc. By biggest concern is there is not consistency across the set they all feel very different. Try processing them all with a similar feel I believe that makes for a more solid set as a whole.

Pretty well done overall. My favorites are #3 and #4 (and the hand was cut off high enough that it doesn't bother me). The interaction between the couple really shows their connection. I just wish her ring was straight in #4.

Thanks spesmeadeus, I agree. I need to create my own actions and presets if I'm going to do this because right now I process each image individually. That makes for a smorgasbord of styles.

Thanks moreronn!

I'm not a big fan of HDR, but you did a GREAT job with it. Like others have said, I would have created a consistent feel to the images unless the client requests otherwise. I like them all except for the last one which I feel could have been cropped tighter leaving the grass as a secondary focus.

I agree with the last one. This wasn't a paid job. They were kind enough to let me practice on them, u can tell I'm still trying to find my style. Here's one more from the session:
