The photographer blew out the shot (overexposed) and it was too far gone to bring it back. Photographer screwed up.

Is it just me, or did he miss the focus?

Wow, that looks really awful!

By the way, it is against forum rules to post an image on POTN that is not your own. I would remove it and give a link to it instead. :)

The glowing is so weird. I mean sure, the whites of the dress are blown, but that doesn't explain the glow, does it?

Looks cooked in post processing. Blew out dress, brought back and he put a glamor glow action on the image.....not too appealing. definitely glamour glow applied.

Looking through the rest of the blog, there are a lot of re-occurring technical issues on many of the different images. I would definitely go with under-exposed or used Gaussian blur with overlay in PS..

You guys are so very critical...jeez...lol. Anyway, I looked at the website's other work (portfolio) and the work-in-question looks consistent with past events. So, in my opinion, I don't think the photographer (and/or company) is entirely at fault, if at all. The client should have done a better job in searching for a photographer that meets her needs/expectations. Just my opinion.

They're not too bad. Aside from the noise and clarity. Probably a pretty good deal for the price. Why try to fix a jpg? Have the bride ask the photographer to apply different post processing settings.

Yesterday I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and the photographer already posted pictures on her blog to preview the day and as we were looking at them the bride was kind of upset that she 'glowed' in all the outdoor shots.

The images in the blog seem to be of a consistent standard with all the others on the photographer's website. Personally the overall style, exposure and processing are not to my taste however I think your friend has little room to complain as they are consistent with the work of that photographer.

If you go into a store to buy something and they have several of them on the shelves, all exactly the same. You pick some up, look at them, then decide to buy one. You take the box home, open it and then complain you don't like what is inside it... who is to blame?

Totally overexposed the dress, and poor quality lens means poor contrast.

To be fair some wedding dresses are both phosphorescent (ie they glow) and they have reflective fibers. To expose for the dress the faces can be 3 stops under. It could be that the bride chose a dress that doesn't photograph well and the photographer did the best they could, because the faces are well exposed.

Though I think the photographer cooked it, used poor lenses, and didn't have the experience to underexpose the dress and fix it in post. Some recovery will be possible in post.

Suspect they got what they paid for.
