    This was at a reception, I was attempting to get a "classical" look out of it. But does the activity in the background do good or bad to the photo?

    Do not worry about the door. Unless you had a flash that could compensate for the indoor setting, and the sky peeking through the door, don't sweat it. In future though, try to minimize (if its your intent), light you cant control:

    Position yourself so the womans head is blocking the light from the sun.
    Shut the door.
    Use a dedicated flash to light your subject, while exposing for the harsh light (so that both the lightsource and your subject will be properly exposed).

    Looks like you did some erasing around the door over the top of her head. Seem to have missed a couple spots and there are some floating hairs/dark spots. Looks good otherwise.

    thanks for the feedback everyone :)

    and the photo is unedited except for some contrast. i think the brightness just drowned out the floating hairs :)

    Too much eye strain for a classic look, her eyes are just too far over and up. bring them back a bit and it will not look so forced
