The "glow dots" naturally occurred in the photo, but I enhanced it a bit in #1, and removed all of them in #2. Which is better?

I like it with them. Some may say it's distracting but it adds to the "magic" of the moment. It gives it a more southern dreamy feel

I like this idea as well. Keep them in the air but off the couple.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

I think the dots are insects. We have this a lot here in Georgia during humid summer days. They come out more prominent when you use the back lighting with dark backgrounds.

Speaking of insect shots. This one threw me for a loop...

They were all hanging around the posts and formed in vertical formations at each post.

Okay here is the final version :) And bugs makes sense--it was a very hot and humid day. Less magical knowing it's bugs though :( Cameraman: those bugs are WEIRD!

Very nice! Bugs and all. Gives a very country like setting. And it makes a big difference not having the bugs flying in front of them like they were. Nicely done!

The edit looks great. What's left of the bugs in the air helps the overall mood IMO.
