2 & 3 are bang on.
5 is a really nice shot, but needs a little bit more exposure, but it still looks really good.
(I am on a works monitor though.)

I would prefer to see consistent lighting throughout, but that just me being picky!!

1) not a fan of where all their hands are.. They are just hanging
3) looks flat and under exposed
4) the lighting looks a bit strange.. Almost like OCF??
5) I like a lot
6) looks like she's uncomfortable, like she's bending her next a bit far

Nice photos but i think you can make it become more attractive by adjust their contrast and colour scheme. The photos still lack of depth. Correct me if i'm wrong :)

Hi there!

here's my feedback :)

1. I can sort of see what you were trying to do here, but I think it's missed the mark. The shrub is very distracting and ugly, I'd prob bin that one.

2. That's a really fun shot, great expression on the bride! You've got heaps of light on their faces too which is great.. but a little over done on the PP, it's stands out from the rest of the shots which don't look so embossed.

3. Is fun too. Great exposure. The crop may work better if you flip it perhaps, not sure.

4. So you have the people facing the sun, so they're all squinting that's not a good look. Then they're also all standing very awkwardly.
My advice for this shot would have been to have their backs facing the sun and use a flash fill, or over expose the background to have their faces exposed nicely. Then, for posing they must be standing CLOSER together. The gaps between them probably didn't seem that large on the day, but in the photos they're obvious and it's making them all look awkward.
In the future when shooting a crowd, tell them to all bunch up as close as possible... tell them to really get in there and be on top of each other!! It'll get some smiles out of them too because they'll all be feeling a little more relaxed and less exposed!

5. is gorgeous. Love her expression. she's a stunning girl !! Could be brightened half a stop though to put some more light in her eyes.. only just slightly however :)

6 is gorgeous too, show cases her dress really well, it's really pretty. Only thing I would have done differently is a shallower DOF to separate her from the background a little more.

You've got some great stuff there! :)

Thanks for all the pros and cons. Really is some great information for future stuff.

Lots of squinting. But I think they look good, otherwise.

2 is my favorite. Looks great.

1, 3, 5, 6 all look under exposed or a bit flat. Try increasing the exposure and playing with the contrast. I usually try to make the dress look as white and bright as possible without totally blowing it out.

1 is lacking depth of field a little and I agree with others that the plants are actually too distracting. But, I do like the concept.

4 has all the people squinting. I usually try to keep the sun behind my subjects. It gives a nice rim light as well.

5 a little off camera flash would have helped make this pop more. Maybe playing with exposure/contrast will help.
