    I covered this ceremony for another photographer in the morning while he shot the western wedding in the evening. I've done Vietnamese and Chinese ceremonies before, but this was probably the most extravagant thus far. The ceremony took about 4 hours, and consisted of multiple outfit changes.

    All editing was done in Lightroom and sharpened in PS.

    Its funny because thats pretty much what I was going to say.

    I really like your studio work with your kids but this?..Not so much. Just me personally.

    I dont care about the vignette but the contrast and saturation is too much for me.

    There's only a few where the saturation is overdone too much...but it needs to be overdone somewhat because the American view of weddings is "desaturation" but this is totally opposite, so run with it. I like.

    I've been to some cambodian weddings and they were good times. Great food and I love the tradition of going from table to table and get mounds of cash!

    Some looks a bit over-exposed, there's some I'm a bit confused what you focused in on, and some have too shallow DOF.

    I like a few of them, but in a lot of others I'm trying to figure out what's going on (overexposed, oversaturated, confusing focal point).

    I think the saturation and vibrancy help depict the energy of such a joyous occasion. Looks great.

    not (*)(*) standard..

    I feel like there are a few that are misfocused, some with too shallow of a DoF, and the saturation is a little over the top.


    Not bad photos, but definitely not your best work.

    i like the over exposure and saturation you added, but it feels very impersonal. it looks more like a wikipedia entry for a cambodian wedding than an actual shoot of someones. too impersonal for me. interesting pictures though.

    From what I've read.... If you're doing it right, donut shops placed in the right location can be very successful($100k+ cash sales annually). It takes maybe 16 hours of labor for a days' work(wholesale), and most probably just have a high school education. You can usually judge their income by the cars they drive. But, don't count on them driving their Landcruiser daily, cause they're afraid that their customers might think they're charging too much.
