    I didn't post these in the wedding gallery because I'm nowhere close to a professional. Someone who saw these has asked to talk to me about photographing her wedding, so I'd love some feedback on what I can do differently and better.
    I know there is a lot to be desired with the lighting on some of them. We were outside in direct, harsh sunlight and I didn't know what fill flash was at the time. Is there anything I can do in photoshop to help with the harsh shadows on some of them?

    Ajay, I think I said this before but you have such a natural talent. You say you don't know much about photography but your photos are really really good. Ok they are better then good!!! :) Yes, if you can get a good flash then that will improve your photos in the future.

    BTW, the bride is very beautiful!!!!!

    They're pretty good if you didn't know about Fill Flash when you took 'em :)

    My one little bad thing, on #3 there's a white splodge on his trousers. Might wanna clone it out.

    Thanks! I am definitely my own worst critic. I can't get out of that somewhat self conscious phase I guess. Its hard to believe sometimes that people might actually want to pay me to take pictures of them! I don't know if you've ever felt the same way.

    Beautiful couple!
    WRT the shadows, fight with them in time of taking pictures. Photoshop is bad friend in these matters

    Wow, thanks everyone. I thought this thread had been laid to rest. :) I never mind getting new comments though.

    kalmkidd - Yeah, when I look at that 3rd one now I don't know what I was thinking when I cropped his head like that. It bugs me too, but that was one of their faves.

    Teresa - Thanks! Out of focus wasn't my intention. Focusing is one of my biggest problem areas I think. I have to consciously remind myself every time I take shot to focus on the eyes. I had similar problems with the latest wedding I just did. I'm also a bad camera shaker, and sometimes I just can't get a high enough shutter speed without losing exposure.

    Zada - She was gorgeous! I think that pink spot might have been me messing up trying to clone her tan line out. The spot is really noticeable now when I look at it, I can't believe I let that slip.

    Elektro - What does WRT mean?

    sirsteezo - I believe she is 19 or 20 and he is 22 or 23.

    Thanks again to all!
