Here are two images from a recent wedding I did. I finally got to shoot in a beautiful Church. I shoot with 2 60d's and a Sigma 17-50 OS and a Tamrom 70-300 VC. The first picture is with the Tamrom at 141mm, f/4.5, 1/40 sec shutter and ISO 1250 hand held. I was pretty impressed with how well it performed.

I'm sure the couple was happy with those images. Were you looking for constructive critique on the pics?

I am always open to critique. That's a way to sharpen your skills.

Speaking about "sharpen" ... they are not as i expect from a wedding ...
i feel they are a bit blurred (it's just a feeling from my computer), post processing or shutter speed too slow ?

This may be my monitor playing tricks on my eyes but based on the first image the groom looks to be balding...in the 2nd due to lighting or something it looks like he has a starfish on his head...that's the only way I can explain it each time I look at it tho my eyes get drawn to it...

The man is thinning on top, it's something that happens. Not sure that falls into the photo critique category.

Be careful with that...I once "corrected" a woman's blemishes/rosacea and she was not pleased. -?

In addition to what the others have said above, I think you could choose a better crop on each picture. In the first, I would do a vertical crop since the table and cross on the drapery is not centered. Personally, that would drive me nuts not having symmetry, but thats probably just me. The 2nd image, I would crop just above the knees and take enough off the top to get rid of the metal "thing" hanging from the wall.

Of the 1st image I do have some pulled back shots in both portrait and landscape. Most of my cropping is done when pictures are order depending on size. For instance the 2nd picture is getting put on 11x14 canvas gallery wrap which should work out pretty good.

Just wondering why you didn't bump the ISO a bit and get your shutter speed to a more hand-holdable and sharper speed? I was always taught to make sure you get the shot sharp and worry about the grain later especially at weddings. Shots are good but I think they could be better with more sharpness.

Point n shoot, I wonder that also. I think it is just the pressure of weddings and thinking they looked good on the LCD screen. Luckily they are a tad sharper on my computer before uploading but could have been better.
