    Cindy doesn't really give you the freedom to shoot or what? If I were to do a 2011 "best" shots, I would not fill 50% of it full of detail shots. Details shots are pretty much filler to make album or collages pretty. It is important... but I would not showcase it.YMMV.

    BUT... the skin looks much better on your processing.

    Nice work Kerb; I like all of them except #12; someone ought to give her a good, swift boot in the ass for putting her dirty shoe on that fine chrome!

    #1 what an angle for the bride hand-off. Wow. It's my favorite because we don't get too many from this angle. We're usually at ground zero.

    I particularly like more exposure generally but what I find really underexposed are 4, 5, 16 and 23. In addition 16 I know you probably had to go open up your aperture because of the low ambient but I'd like to see a clearer image of the father and bride.

    Though the ring shots are great, I think I would love to see more OCF or creative bounce flash. They're a bit flat. You can easily do it with ring shots as relocating them to the ideal settings or location is cake.

    I think this is the first time I've seen any of your images. Generally I like them. They're natural and not over processed - if done consistently this is actually harder to do in my opinion as one can get easily carried away and over process. Like I mentioned above, I think it can use some creative lighting and more lighting on some. Good job, looks like you had a good year.

    They are all beautiful. 13 and 35 are probably my favorites. I love the detail shots as well! First time I've seen your work - its about time. I think you definitely captured some of those perfect moments that a bride/groom wouldn't want to forget!

    Hope 2012 is a great year for you!!

    Thanks, yeah, I guess I don't really post that often. This forum isn't the most user friendly when it comes to posting a lot of photos but I've been meaning to make this thread for about a month now. Finally got around to it.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I'll try to post more in 2012. I really need to get better about cataloging and editing my photos. I have tens of thousands just sitting in random folders and hard drives that I've never processed. We'll call it my 2012 resolution to get better about it.

    My CC as requested. I already told you why I think you shouldnt put this many detail shots on your "best of 2011" thread.

    Really man.. you are showing your "best" shots and you are showing mostly detail shots? I thought you were a wedding photographer?

    While I agree with some of your critique points, I think that last line is a bit harsh.

    I don't mind harsh...and Robin, no, I'm not a wedding photographer. I run the Engineering department for a Fortune 50 company.

    I do, however, sometimes assist in weddings...you know, like taking detail shots...

    Well I think you're being overly critical here... You've found something wrong with 34/35 photos. With this type of hair splitting and nit-picking, it's not productive. In fact it's so counter-productive I have no choice but to critique your critique (Well, some of it anyway)

    That is the lamest excuse ever. Really man... I cant wait to assist 2 weddings in a couple of weeks. I think 2nd shooting is where you can really shine because you are not worried as much with the "must shots". Sure this isnt your main job, but you were hired to be a wedding photographer. Photography isnt my main job either. I wont use me being an engineer as an excuse though. Hopefully I can walk the talk. Really.. I cant wait to 2nd shoot again.
