    ...certainly not my favorite from our two day session(s), but one she chose. I thought I'd go ahead and post it up here since it's the first one i've finished editing (so far):

    thanks for looking!

    *edit*

    here's another they chose...again, not one of my absolute faves but I thought I'd post it anyway:

    I like it. I think the only thing that could make this shot better is for her other hand to be on the other rail. Other than that, it's a great shot. I love everything you post though :lol:

    Always a treat to see your posts Daniel. Thanks for showing this great shot. Color, focus, sharpness, and composition are always top notch.

    Bea It always surprises me what people will like...i think we look at from an artistic/technical standpoint and the couple sees something in about their personality or a memory etc...that make it a WOW for them!!
    Beautiful shot!

    thanks guys!

    crazyava, I see what you're saying about the other arm. I did try that in other shots, but the other rail is farther away from her than it looks, and it spread out the composition quite a bit more than I wanted.

    If it meets the criteria of the bride, you have been effective. There are lots of good qualities in this image. If it were mine, I would be tempted to trim a bit off of the bottom, shaving down the bannister, which is a distracting blob. It would have to be as minimal as possible because I would expect that bride wants to see some of the bottom decorations on her dress.

    that's a good point, thanks. the original photo shows more of the dress and handrail on the left, which actually helps a bit with the 'blob' effect...they ordered an 11x14 so i cropped it a bit to fit that, which probably exaggerated the blob thing.

    Sweet! I love it. Great Job! Isn't it crazy though? They always choose the one you almost didn't include. :-0
