So I was going through my images from 2013 and realized I never posted this engagement session to my blog. Figured I'd post a few pics here. Let me know what you think. The post is here as well: http://joedantone.com/​?p=2878 (external link)

Thanks guys, yea it was a branch that I wish was a little wider so it covered the right portion of the frame a bit more.

The second one is awesome. The large object in the foreground in #1 is a little distracting.

Love the second shot. For the first one, I would have cropped out the black slash all together...not sure how much that would take away, but for me the branch killed that one for me.


Why don't you take a picture, it will last longer....

I would crop the second one to vertical. The bricks and green wall are too blurry at that point to benefit the photo. To me it sort of divides the photo in half anyway.

In respect to the first one, even if the branch were wide enough to cover the entire right half, it still wouldn't be visually pleasing. You could use an adjustment brush to completely underexpose the right side, and if that branch covered, that's exactly what it would look like you did. If you're gonna cover part of your scene with something in the foreground, it needs to mesh with your subject, not detract from it. Think an opening in a wall and your subject visible just through that opening.


Some moments are too amazing to be ruined with words.

Just to touch on the second one, I'd crop like suggested.

The first photo, I would use as an advertisement. Myself, I use a diagonal slash and gradient to black. In the black I put all my text.
