I'd like to see the prospective of the building corrected.

That will happen when I take the pic into PS. Everything else was done in LR

So I did a bit more work on the image after I finished editing the rest of the wedding set.

Nice shot! Just curious what you're triggering your flashes with?

I use Cheetah flashes. I like that you can control the output of the lights from the transmitter.

I somehow prefer the second version, although the groom has gained some weight :)

I actually think the corrected version is worse.

Instead, I would try straightening the image using the place they're standing as "zero".

That second version added about 10 to 15 pounds on both of them. To help all or just me, what did you do in trying to correct the image other then the cloning on the right side. Did you do a lens correction in RAW?

Yeah you're right. I didn't notice that until now. I used lens correction in PS. No worries, I'll correct it before sending it on to the couple. Thanks!

Jim,
Best way to correct verticals is with the skew option that permits compressing the bottom of the image a little and stretching the top. That keeps people from getting fat. :-D

I have a question: Did you do anything special to match color temps between flash and the practical lights inside? I've tried this type of shot and gotten horrible results with color temp differences..


5D II | Sigma 35mm f/1.4 | Canon 85 f/1.8 | Canon 24-105 f/4 L
WARNING!: Before commenting that my color correction is horrible, please keep in mind that I am colorblind, and that hasn't stopped me from trying.

While I usually try to match ambient temps, I didn't on this shot. I used a speed light inside the doorway and an LED light on the couple.
