Don't take the wrong way but that might be one of the last shots we show with the drone and maybe not even then. His thinning hair is not what I want to show any groom if it can be avoided. Have any others to show off?

Not taken the wrong way...I believe you are missing the whole point though of the image...As almost everything in this site, it's all subjective...Thanks for the input.

I like it but think it could be improved by repositioning the couple. Their shadow is a big part of the image and could be improved. Move them fractionally to the right and get the bride to move slightly so they hold hands with a gap between them and the shadow would open up a little and become much more interesting/part of the image.

Yeah Ive tried over head shots like that befor. Not from a drone but from up on a wall but it only works if you arnt showing thinning hair.

I think the shot could habe worked better if you made there shadows interesting

I'll just add one more thing. I don't think I was missing the whole point of the image you were trying to accomplish. I think most photographers try and do create beautiful artistic images and want to show what they are capable of doing from years of experience.

What we always try to remember, even though we want to do wonderful creative things, is who we are doing this for. Bottom line is I can appreciate what you were going for, but the end user who does not have the trained eye (and not that mine is that trained either :) ) but he will not see the thought and effort you put into creating something very beautiful for them, only the top of his head and how thin he is getting. A shame that is the case but they will show that photo to no one.

I have done these as well and I never admit it but I will fill in that bald patch on occasion. Never had any negative feedback from doing so.

It's a good idea but I don't really "get it." As others have said the groom's thinning hair is highlighted by this angle and the advantage of this angle is to get a new perspective on their connection or their context. I get neither of them from this shot because I can't see their faces and the context that surrounds them is uninteresting. Just my .02, just trying to provide some food for thought to make some unique images in the future.

I think it's a good idea, and definitely another perspective not commonly seen.

I think it would be really neat with some interesting foliage/flowers or water (beach, or surf) with the couple looking up to make a really cracking image, to take advantage of having a wide angle and full depth of field image.

Very best,
