    This was a low budget outdoor wedding. Luckily I work for real cheap right now. Always looking to improve, and I know I can't compare to most of the wedding guys on here, so C&C please. I'm not sensitive so let me have it.

    2 & 17 are the only ones I didn't do a skin touch up on. So which ones do work... if any?

    check your other thread, you might find out. hahaha.

    n/m ill move it for you.

    Honestly, I like all of these except the very very last one. Really shows her age and imperfections, probably even heightening them, which no one wants. I am not going to comment on many of the rest, but I will say I bet they got alot of bang for their buck! Good job on lots of these.
    Now lets see if anything sticks out at me:
    2: looks like she's picking her nose! eww haha
    3: lovely, but a bit heavy on the vignette.
    6: wish the reflection was better lit and the camera wasn't tilted quite as much. if this were a bit straighter I bet you'd see more reflection, more of the back of the dress, and if your flash was on the hot shoe, I bet it would have lit up the reflection more...
    9: love it
    10: I like the concept, wish the red hue over the background wasn't as heavy, and the middle picture's WB doesn't match the other three. and the fourth picture I wish was a bit more of the bride in the fram instead of nothing
    17: already said, not a fan of this one at all.
    I really think you did a great job on these though. You were by yourself, caught alot of great moments, and I really like your compilation ideas.

    I responded to your C&C in other thread... thanks, and I am sorry for double posting everyone. I see it isn't appreciated.

    ps. Flash was on hot shoe in all pics. I bounced a lot. I really didn't want to limit my speed by strobing. Although, I love how off camera flash looks.

    I think you did a great job of getting the right shots. A little pp would go a long way to helping out.
    I did a quick lightroom, adjust clarity and photoshop I created an adjustment layer, softened her skin, brightened her eyes(got one too bright) and adjusted opacity. This took about 10 minutes so if you have the time there is a lot that could be done. I am an extreme rookie so take this with the usual grain of salt.

    Just two quick comments. The focus in #1 seems to be falling onto her hair. It's not particularly flattering. And #17 made me scream "ZOMBIE BRIDE!" and put my hands over my ears so she didn't jump out of the screen and eat my brains. ;)

    You do have some truly lovely images in here. #7 and 8 are very nice! Keep going at it!

    The candids look a little too candid and are unflattering. I like the montages, but feel that the layouts should have a common theme - but that's probably just me being too neat and tidy.
