First wedding? They are awesome! Love the under-pier shots best but all in all a cracking set. Well done!

I love #6,7 and 8. I like #5 too, I would love to see a little more of the bride in 5, but the posing and the rest is very good! Well done!

I like them. I also like jayspec's C&C. I may not agree with it, but if I had posted the pictures, I would like someone to be honest and shoot strait with me :) .

Wow Jayspec .. pretty harsh on the subject of the beer bottle on the 5th image?
I too always think it's a great idea to put down beverages, however, in this case it works!

I think he did a great job for his first ever wedding .. matter a fact, the image in question
sorta has an HDR look to it. That's also a + for this shot .. I thnk for what it is .. it worked great!

Lighten up on the guy lol .. I'm sure your first wedding was nominated by WPPI for all kinds of awards!
Then again ............. perhaps not. Using all caps is not something taken lightly either!

Geeesh .. I think you did a great job BJWOK .. for your first ever attempt.

thanks tomi!

i think the more concerning thing about jays original post is that he has no link to his work/portfolio for anyone to compare his talk to his walk.

jay? you got a link mate?

thanks again tomi :)

I didn't have a problem with Jayspec's comments. I did have a problem with the tone of his comments. I agree with most of what he said, but often it's not what you say, but how you say it... BJ, have you ticked him off somehow before this? Jay, try to abide by this one: "It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice." (I think that one is attributed to Archie Manning)

In defense of Jay, I think most of us will agree that there is a lot of mediocre work on here that is lauded as wonderful or nice, when perhaps the truth would serve us better. Now, on to the images. (Sorry, had to say all that)

Biggest complaint that I have with these images is that you need to watch your compositions much more closely. You have a lot of horizons cutting through heads and such. Not crazy about the angles on the first two either. Actually love the PP on #5, and with a bit less foreground, more background and no sailboats running into heads, it would be a great! shot. As it is, the couple will probably really like these images and they are your real critics. Hopefully, however, some of these constructive critiques will be helpful and hold you accountable for making improvements! Keep posting... (and I don't post near enough of my own work! :lol: )

Overall, great job - for your first wedding. If you were a seasoned pro, I would expect that you wouldn't make some of these glaring errors. But good job and as I said keep it up! ;)

I think you did a great job!!!

By the way, I just did a search of Collierportraits posts and Jayspecs posts. Why is that you both post less than mediocre photos (3 posts combined) yet feel the need to tell everyone how it is? None of the photos that you have posted even come close to the photos that you comment on. If you don't believe me do your own search. Beach shots? Jayspec portraits? Maybe you guys should take some of your own advice.
