This is Melanie and Michael. Yesterday we did an Engagement Session at Fairfax County, VA's Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. A beautiful site for a lovely couple. They will wed in June 2008 after graduation from college. These love birds have been dating for eight years and are just delightful to be with :) C&C are welcome and appreciated...enjoy,

Jim, definitely a lovely couple. Colors are a bit too saturated, at least on my monitor and quite cool. I think if you bumped up the WB to 6000 or so they would take on a much warmer effect.

Jim! I'm viewing these images from my monitor at work, which is not calibrated, so my comments may be a off the mark. First and foremost the images look great. Good composition and I think you've captured their happiness well. As Mark the Dork pointed out, the images do appear to be a bit cool. I echo his recommendation to crank up the color temp to warm them up a bit. I like the idea behind shot #4, but the fountain in the background (I think that's a fountain) looks completely washed out. Did you try exposing for the background and hitting the couple with a diffused flash? Overall, I think you've captured the young couple as well as anyone could. I really like the over-the-shoulder-glance bridge shot. Nice job, Jim. ;)

Jim, those are pretty good, but are you shooting in RAW? The last shot is the best, I think. But some of the shots may look flat. What lens are you using? If you want to borrow my 85 or 50, just tell me because for portraits, those are the best. Also, the 70-200 2.8 is very good with bokeh even for portraits. That is one great looking couple. If you need a second, just call me.

I have to agree most of them look pretty flat and not guite sharp either. I am sorry Jim but most of them look like snapshots to me.

nice poses, but they need to be sharper and the colors need to be boosted.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. One keeps trying and learning...looks like my next purchase is a calibration tool for my monitor. I need to solve the puzzle of why photos "pop" on my monitor but not when I post them.

I told Jim in a PM that I have the Spyder2 Express and it's slow, takes forever. Can someone tell Jim which model Huey is the best?
