    Nice enough effect without going too far. The biggest problem for me is the vignetting around the edges - The best way (other than cloning) to get rid of it and possibly make the image a little stronger is to crop it into a portrait orientation - The masts should provide good lead-in lines. Also I think it makes the bride stand out a little better when a "darken/lighten centre" filter is applied.. just to brighten up her face. :thumbup:

    PP'ing is a personal thing though so it's whatever you think works best, we can only offer our own opinion.

    Color Efex Pro is a good filter package if you're interested.

    Post-Processing (PP'ing, sorry, I was being lazy).

    Not sure about the contrast to be honest, I actually quite like it kinda as it was originally - I've really no idea on how to give it a boost without affecting the ladies too much except from maybe using curve adjustments.

    In addition that mentioned above, I'd like to see these images shot with a much larger aperture. The sharp background rendered by the use of f16 detracts from the image. A softer, less focused background would make the subject stronger.

    so are you talking about blurring the backround?

    Beautiful girls, however the shot is much too soft for my liking. I understand sometimes this is intentional to deliver a dreamy-like feel but I have to squint in order to concentrate on the photo.

    The contrast seems much more realistic to me in the second one. It also helps the girls faces without losing much detail in the dress. Unfortunately, it also makes the background even more prominent.

    I would not make this shot vertical but I would crop out the vignetting and blur the background quite a bit. Enough that it is not annoying but not so much that you can't recognize it for what it is.
