The sun was very harsh indeed. A fill-flash next time ? Just to clear the shadows out of the eyes. I take it you added the vignetting in as a PP effect ?

Very nice set. I'm not a fan of the vignetting, but it does work a little.

nice shots.
is it just me, or does horizon in middle of shots #1-4 seem a little distracting?....

The church,.. distracting ? Surely that's highly symbolic for a couple about to get married....

fill flash for sure... i like the setting...church in the background is a nice touch...

maybe go for a sepia look or a black and white ( with grain) add to the texture of the fields themselves...
a good friend of mine told me once... " never wear blue with brown ";)

just my 2 cents.....

how about a little B&W pp.....
The color is not working for me.
Fill flash + ND or polarizer. I would use the ND.
(This would allow small DOF to help isolate couple in a couple of shots.)

#7 is the only one that looks/feels clean-cheerful-special moment.

do you have any shot where you show some eyes (spot meter skin) and blew out
the highs?

Not trying to sound harsh ... just a different perspective.

Later,
Mark

The sun was crazy harsh. You can't see their eyes. And no close up shots?

1-nice, but the vignette is too strong and center's the steeple. My eye went to the steeple 1st.
2 - cute picture, my 2nd favorite one. strong vignette again, but I am drawn to that bottom corner nicely.
3 - my favorite. Great concept.
4 - same as #2.
5 - good shot. tough light as stated before.
6 - I like.
7 - The modern wedding photog loves those shots. Yours is great. Nice sky. I cannot grab that whole "angle" thing. I do love the leading lines up the couple at that angle though.
8 - nice, again, but mix up your vignette style. Go with that washed feel a bit more.

Nice couple to work with. You (and them) really added beauty to an otherwise barren scene.

#1 is a little too dark for me. Love #3! My fave is #8 sans the dark shadows on his face. Where was this at? Nebraska, Iowa? Nice composition and I personally really like the steeple in the background!

Nice shots, some fill could have helped though, even just a reflector would have probably done it.

You must be a city boy if you think that was a corn field though. :lol: ;)

With this set, the first thing I notice is pretty much all the same composition and posing. Other than that, really great location and nice processing.

You would have been better off finding a few shots in a shaded environment, out of the sun to compliment these. 8 and 6 are the best from this set in my opinion.
