Ok folks - If you haven't seen my "What camera do I upgrade to" these are what I deemed to be the "TOP IMAGES" taken with my Konika-Minolta maxxum 5d. Some post processing was completed using CS3. I was nervous when I started out as a "back-up" but in no way was I the primary photographer. The photograper that was hired used a Nikon D300 with super lenses, but didn't do much out of the ordinary of taking hundreds (if not over 2000) of photos. Please, feel free to roast my composition, lighting, and overall image quality. I want to learn!!!

Be patient, you only posted 2 hours ago and many times a post will only get a couple of comments per couple hundred views...

A few of the photos aren't very engaging due to the lack of eye contact. However, if you were a 2nd shooter not much you can do about that. However, some of your images IMO are good captures where they weren't posing. I also like the black & white except for the selective coloring, but Im not a fan of that PP technique so YMMV.

I think you are off to a good start. A little more PP would add a lot to them, IMHO.

Oh and critiquing is also easier if you number your photos....

very nice work there, I must agree with Maureen Souza though, some more PP would do the touch... here's my version :D

How did you do that??? The AFTER product looks amazing! So razor sharp! I used the UNSHARP MASK filter in CS3 but wow, was I supposed to go further? What tool/filter can achieve this look? Or is WACOM a program?

Thanks! Looks amazing!!! 1 down....7 to go? Hahahahah

Good on you for getting out there and giving 2nd shooting a go.

As everyone has said these images have potential but need the PP to make them work.

Nice edit edik!

Thanks. I just needed to swallow my nerves and just do it. If I did 2 or 3 weddings alone, i woul dbe fine. I agree that the PP looks wonderful, but I need to know what programs I really need besides CS3. The image above from Edik looks so crisp and vibrant..... But I need to know a starting point. Such as, what area do I adjust? What programs to use, etc.

I am really amazed at the difference just from the PP. Edik - How long did it take to edit the photo? Don't tell me, 30 seconds with a pre-programmed filter? : )

Nice edit. Not to hijack, but how do you like the Wacom? I'm thinking about getting the 6x11 for my widescreen monitor. I'm thinking it will help speed up my post processing. Thoughts? Feel free to PM me. Thanks in advance!

The only thing to add as a critique is in my opinion your shots were too tight overall. There are no full shots of the bride in her dress?

The photos have a basic but nice composition to them. PP is required as many have suggested.

Beisdes PP you just need to watch your backgrounds if at all possible. I didnt really like the house our cars in the background but if you are a second shooter sometimes you dont really have a choice. Good job.
