    Here is one of my very first engagement sessions with a couple getting married this weekend. I am thinking that the hands are in a bad position, or I should have taken a wider type angle of this particular image. Just wondering your thoughts. Thanks for looking!

    Oh yea, and I forgot to mention, when I shot this session, my camera had a major malfunction. During this session, my shutter started to lag, and I was getting a large glare right down the middle of the frames. :-( But all is better now that its been replaced!

    Looks great but I would watch hand placements. His hands probably should have been placed better but for now you could clone them out.
    Other than that I really like the shot.

    Like GHP said, the hand placement is odd to say the least. It's like his hands are on her gut, which is just weird. Other then that it looks really good.

    So should I clone them out? And any suggestions for next time for the hands?

    So, does something like this look any better?

    cloning out the hands look odd. It looks like his hands are behind her butt.

    So is there a viabable solution for posing of the hands for a pose of this nature?

    Weird question0- Is she pregnaqnt? I can't tell from the angle. If she is, I'd say the first shot is good. If not, I'd go w/the second shot.

    I also dislike those red bricks behind her head.. my eyes keep going there. Can you desaturate them a bit? And blur the background more too. That might help!
