    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.

    17. I have a few I did with the motion blur from the reception. Does this look work?

    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.

    No. She looks...diseased (him too)... That's really the only one that looks that way, so I think it might be something you did (or failed to do)...

    #6 might have been more interesting with the focus on the mirror...

    Also, there is no need to double post. Pick one and leave it there...

    Thank you so much. I agree with pretty much all of that. The tilt in the dressing room was due to all the people I was contorted around. I agree with the bride's spread, that middle picture does look off now that I look at it again. The red is a little much. I think the consensus on #17 is HELL NO.. lol. thanks again.

    A mod will probably merge the two threads soon, but in the future - just post a thread once. Just makes it less confusing for everyone.
    (Including you - much easier when everything is all in one place.)

    i dont like the color tone in any of them... and i would never pay for the first two photos... she looks like she just woke up out of bed... get a shot of the bride getting ready AFTER most of her makeup is on...

    i like #3... not a huge fan of 15 but it works for me because she looks so happy in it....

    The last photo (17) Is very unflattering to me. The chin in the upper right is also distracting and humorously noisy and discolored.

    I am processing the RAW files in aperture. Do you have any tips for me to get better color. This is the only way I can currently process my D300s RAWs. Don't have lightroom. The dressing room pics were tough because of how I bounced the flash... some casted a horrible tint. I would like to improve if you have any tips for me.
