    Some of the few customers I have has seem to love these pictures. I have been playing with different artistic effects. Let me know what you think. Obviously, they are an acquired taste. Over photoshopping is a disease, and I think I have caught it. #4 is rough...I know.

    Hey, if your customers love 'em, that's all that counts. Because at the end of the day, if it pays the bills, it worked.

    Not my style either, way over shopped and the photo under those layers and layers of shopping aren't that great.

    I think these work more for album covers,backings, cards, invitations and other memorabilia.

    Based on that, over all I think your layers are too equally transparent. It's very difficult to read the fonts and figure out the pictures as they blend too much. Maybe signify what you want the user to see, if it's reading having fonts stick out more, if it's the picture, lessen the fonts opacity.

    I think #2 is the most interesting of them all, but it doesn't seem to pertain to the couple or a wedding.

    I agree, if you're hooking into the demographic of people who think this looks good, then good for you. But to me, they all look (except #2) unresolved, gimmicky and sort of generic looking but trying to appear "artsy", from a professional point of view. Again, this is in "The Professional Gallery", so I'm giving a harder crit than if you were an enthusiast doing this for fun.

    Maybe the road you are going down is a short and you will come back from the dark side.
    Creativity is a good thing...sometimes.
    On the plus side, when you did find something that works it will probably give you a unique style all your own.
