So two months ago I bought my first DSLR on a whim at Costco. Since then I've soaked up all the knowledge (and gear) that I could get my hands on. Did a free shoot through Kijiji (like craigslist) and this is what I ended up with. I'd love some feedback. Two lessons learned - have gel for your flash, and 2.8 isn't quick enough for night time receptions.

These look good. You could reduce that hotspot on lady in #4 (bring backs highlights slider)

Cute shot and good exposure on #2

Not a big fan on selective color. My rule is to use it once to try it out and then never use it again.
