    So I took some motion blur pictures at the reception to try something new. Is there anything worth trying with these. My intentions were good, but the more I look at them, the more I feel like hitting the delete button. I have seen some cool stuff done with motion blur, if there is any advice out there please let me have it. My first attempt was not liked by anyone...

    I've personally never been able to pull it off well in a situation like this. Give me a concert where i can blur the lighting but keep the subject sharp, and i'm golden, but bluring the people and trying to catch em, its hard. maybe experiment some with the rear curtain flash and some friends. good luck!

    Yeah, what I usually do is try a quick clean-up job to see if the results look encouraging. Then if I decide to really work on it, I usually scrap the initial result and start again really being careful.

    In the quick one I posted here, I would spend more time especially on her nose and also re-saturate her skin to give it a bit more life, without trying to get too much blush/red in there.

    I think you've got a great capture of her expression here and with some work I bet it'll be a picture she cherishes.
