    It's not the fact that it's a D3100.
    No, that's not the sole factor, but it's a huge one. I have not seen any 3100's perform well at a wedding. I say this having owned one and loving the camera. It's a great entry level camera, and does a fine job. Just does not belong at a wedding IMO. Even with great lenses, its performance can't handle what is needed for a good wedding. Notice I say "good", sure it "will work" but not "good".

    Really not sure why people like to argue this, no entry level camera belongs in a wedding, period.
    I'm not saying it belong in wedding photography, but even with a decent and good lens and a person who actually know how to use it, I'm sure it would come out pretty decent. All I'm saying is the person who posted this, don't even know how to use a camera.
    Canon 5Dii, 7D

    It seems everyone agrees that the images are cropped too tightly and underexposed.
    I will add that natural window lighting is a great source of light to use *on* your subject, rather than behind.
    I am sure your next one will show a lot of improvement

    I am trying to figure out if there was some particular aestetic idea behind this set. Is it a deliberate attempt to create some darkish creepy mood that reflects the occasion or the people there? The tight crop just adds to the intensity of it. Forget about D3100 it might as well be shot with a 10 y.o. Nokia mobile phone, but there is something seriously unsettling about these images. The shot No 3 is Cannibal Lector territory. If I were shown this shot only and asked what it was, I would say - probably this is the funeral of a seriously hated, unbelievably miserly and fabulously rich man.
    I did not want to offend anyone.
