    1 hotspot on the bottom of the dress is distracting
    3 A little too blown out. I'm not sure if this was the effect you were going for or not, but she's almost entirely lost in the background.
    12 Highlights to camera right on the groom are blown
    16, you cut off her hand.

    Other than those few nitpicks, it's a very strong set. Well done, nice composition, and good lighting for the most part. the PP was never overdone (from what my untrained eye could see.) I like.

    Girth... that much contrast is murder on her face, despite it working nicely with the rest of the photo. :sad2:

    Lovely shots!

    The only one that slightly bothers me is #14...
    Unless she's a "little person", that angle makes her arm look abnormally short :o

    hehe, I shot that pic with a color balanced gel, her skin tone and dress (cream, not white) are the actual color as shown. Its everything else that was shifted warm. SHE should still be correct. Or does it not come off that way?

    The warmtone in the rest of the pic is a TON better than the actual -- greenish fluorescent...
    Chose the lesser of 2 evils...unless I'm off on her skintone



    Thanks mang! :big grin:
    I told the groom he was the "Lord of the Biosphere". He puffed up and I made a few exposures right then.


    Yeah I blew out her dress intentionally, and the focus is just slightly off (also intentionally)...hey I had to work hard to NOT nail focus with my D3...

    I was trying to do fuzzy and "dreamlike". guess I will have to be clearer (conceptually) next time. thanks for the pointing that out.




    Ughhhh, her boobs were kinda shapeless and the dress had no support... I had to help her retie the thing a few times. I like a nice rack...these weren't it...
    Oh well.


    You know, I never though of it that way. Yeah, her does look "short" if you think of it as hanging straight down. Will have to emphasize the perspective even more next time.



    thanks! yeah please do steal the concept...nothing flatters like imitation :rofl:
    plus I stole the basic idea from someone else too...(The Bebbs)



    Thanks for all the kind comments guys...appreciated :big grin:

    One thing that might help keep that same (nearly) pose, while reducing the effect of the "dwarf arm" would be to rotate her hand so the back of her hand is against the wall, and bend her elbow slightly. The perspective will be there, but the slight angle of her elbow will reduce the "midgetized" arm, and allow the brain to translate it as it is, rather than the optical illusion this pose creates.
