    These are Brandy and Trent's Wedding photos! I shot it with both my Pentax istDL (with a 70-300 telephoto lens) and my new K20D (with a sigma 15-55mm lens) I just draped them both around my neck and during the wedding march, would pick up whatever one I wanted and voila!

    Brandy takes Dad's arm. The only time she cried was when she saw her father. In the shots after this one, you can see that dad's got tears in his eyes too!

    A few of these (especially during the ceremony) have some harsh shadows. Can't exactly stop the ceremony to lay out reflectors and what have yah? What do you do to help with that???

    OKAY, I just figured out that I can use my hot shoe flash (AF-360FGZ) wirelessly (is that a word?) detached from my Pentax K20D where I couldn't before with my istDL. This opens up a world of possibilities! On the istDL, you had to have two flash units, one operating as a slave and one attached to the hot shoe of the camera as the master.

    I think that this would have helped out a ton on these shadows!

    woulda-coulda-shoulda!

    Can you hear my husband groan?? He knows that I have a few hours of practice shoots to use him and the kids in to test this out!!

    You asked for it... ;)
    1. The half a person on the LH side is a little distracting.
    2. Having both the flower girl and ring-bearer complete in the image would have made it much nicer.
    3. Shadow on the right side of his head, and the fence/gate to his left are both a little distracting.
    4. DoF - too much of it in this case.
    5. A little more bride would have been nice.
    6. Nice, but a little more of the fellow leaning over I think
    7. Beautiful!!
    8 - 10. Very well done, nice work on the exposure.
    11. Nice.

    I did ask for it, and I really do appreciate it. I think on #1 I'll go clone out that half person. #2 could be solved with a tighter crop maybe? I agree with #3, it was taken with a telephoto lens, so the shadow couldn't be avoided, nor the arbor he was standing in front of. #4 I really love their expressions on this, although I really hate that they put so much of the reception stuff against the house, very ugly backdrop:grumpy: I agree with you on 5 and 6. and I thank you for your compliments on the others!

    Thanks for the C&C!

    anyone else?
