    Sweet! Loving 3,5,6.

    Looks like focus was off in #1 and #2 ya?

    With the exception of #6 (love the contrast in color choice BTW), the bride is a bit dark (whether it's shadows or she's underexposed due to whatever factor).

    Oh ya...on #5, crop out that nasty twig/bush thing. I like the shots, the bride will def be happy.

    focus is on the eyes... I shrunk all these at 300 dpi for some reason :uh:, they're a little "too" sharp IMO.

    I noticed that brush in 5 after I posted it. :bigthumb:


    :love:

    I like that shot a lot myself. :cool:

    No diffuser. bare flash top right of the pic, being held by my lovely assistant Wheezer. :o

    Nice.

    Is it just me or does her lips look pretty unflattering and scary on #8?

    #6!!! Between nearly ruining her dress and wondering if the owner was going to come out with a shotgun, it was actually worth it.

    I like them all, but instead of leaving it at that, i'll give you a little criticism..

    First, you collectively need to back off the contrast/saturation sliders a little. In just about every image, you have color channels either being clipped, or *so* close to being clipped that they start to block up. This is what's causing the slight reddish bands in her skin where the highlights and shadows meet, as well as the rest of the shadows going from full of detail to all black with no detail... If you look at your histogram and select 'all channels', you'll see this. Knock down the processing a notch, and you'll see a MUCH nicer gradient.

    #1 - not sure if it's the angle or distortion, but she looks a littler weird/heavy in this shot. It's possible it's just how lit/flat her camera R shoulder is. Try cropping that out, or condensing the frame by 10% to get rid of that look. She's definitely not a heavy set girl, but something in this pic isn't flattering.

    4 and 7 - if it's possible, bring out more detail in her skin/face, and let the background fall a little darker. Especially in 4, her face blocks up into no-detail black squares. Are they landscapes or bridal portraits? Make her more interesting in the frame.

    but seriously. they're all really good.

    great shots overall, I think you should try and work on #1 & #2 some more

    also you can probably increase the blue saturation/luminosity in #5 a little

    i really like 3,5,6. on 1 something looks a little odd to me, i'm not sure if its her shoulder sticking out funny or a funny angle of her face/head, but something isn't flattering in that shot. 4 has a shadow across her face. other than these 2 minor items, they are some great shots.

    This is why OTAP is the shit. Great advice (this takes some thought and time)! If any of you guys are using Nikonians, god, I feel bad for you (I actually paid for Nikonians). It's a bunch of PC, generally older (not necessarily a bad thing) people who just lick each others balls and get all flustered if anyone says anything that shouldn't be mentioned near a priest.
