They're not that really big guys, hehe. Didn't think the watermark would turn out that big.

I am a long way from being able to attempt a wedding but the framing/cropping looks really crap to me. The dress shot could be tighter and straighter and could be just about fixed. There are 1.5 grooms men and the top of the rotunda is neither in nor out There is a bridesmaid with no arse and a groomsman with half a foot. The shot of the groom's head in front of the bride with half a hand and an OOF bg (not bokeh, just OOF) I would probably, no, I would bin.

Apart from those few nits they are good, and better than I would do under the same pressure.

Edit, I just looked back through them again, I love the rings, and the last one, the otherss that I mentioned could probably be cropped and be OK.

You are right, what was I thinking? The only one that really disturb me is shot number 6. The posing on there could use a little work. I wanted the groom arms to wrap around the bride and have the bride hands place on top of the grooms hands. But when timing is so short, like this wedding was. It's hard to see all the flaws that one might already know about, but just couldn't see it at the time that it happens. Yes, I need to work on my cropping. Good thing I have multiple shots with different focal length done. Sorry no half a guy sticking out and no bridesmaid arsh will be cut out next time.

One thing I've learn is, sometime you don't always get that perfect tack sharp photo or perfect cropping done. But as long as the expression is great then you won't have to worried. Sometime a photo is better than no photo at all.

I'll definitely take my time to see it clearly next event.
Thank guys for the

Watermark comments, really? Where are the watermark comments on other threads here where some REALLY GOOD wedding photogs post their pics that everyone goes ga ga over? They have the exact same size if not bigger, watermark in the same place that is more prominent than this one.

Is it because those photogs have such amazing skill in photography that nobody dares to comment on their watermark because they seem to know what they are doing?

Its just that many people here with different skill levels attempt to improve their images by learning here and part of that learning is imitating in certain ways, styles that the clearly talented photogs have (those that seem to have a fan club on POTN with all the praises whenever they post a picture)… including size, placement and opacity of watermarks. Case in point- when Mondayshift started getting alot of attention for his amazing photos, it was interesting to see over time how many new watermarks started showing up on other photogs images that closely resembled his watermark style. Imitation is flattery.

I think the OP was simply doing the same and in my opinion, has a nice watermark that looks better than others I've seen. Maybe reduce the opacity a little? Otherwise its tasteful compared to others.

Sorry, I just found the criticism hypocritical in light of how other talented photogs do their watermark the same way.

I think a wider shot in front of the gazebo would of been nicer to capture all the groomsman/bridesmaids. Or crop it tighter for just the two of them.


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

I do have a wider shot of the gazebo and all the bridesmaid and groomsmen are in it. I just like thistle tighter shot on this one. It shows now detail with the tighter shot.

As for the watermark thing, originally I wanted to be like the current watermark style. To me it's not about water marking, but more for showing off my ridiculously good looking logo :)

I never thought to impress every photogs here. You just simply can't. Sometime criticism is good, and sometime it can be bad for you. Everyone have a uniqueness in them, that makes us different. Hmmm, I've heard that somewhere before. Hint, initial JG.

I have so much more to learn, happy shooting mates.

Your first wedding? Great job! You should have happy clients. The last pic is a great capture of a special moment. The third one has a weird light (glow) on the couch (top middle). You can maybe fix in post. Congrats on a job well done!

OH MY Watermark comments. It is really not that bad and does not interfere with a critique.

#1...Love the ring shot
#2...Not straight and the partial doorway should be in the image
#3.. A little crooked .. a bit soft
#4. I would reject this one if it were me.
#5..It pretty good. I would have shot it wide or tighter
#6..A bit blown out but it is a nice image
#7..Cropped to tight
#8.. Well done :)
