    Really nice shot that I'm sure they will treasure for years to come.

    One comment. The dark spot between them (under the younger woman's arm). That is a tiny bit distracting from an otherwise really super image! Bravo! I would crop the image to rid that area. It's not necessary to have. You could even spare a bit of room from the top of the image. Not necessary to have so much white space.

    Very well done, I love it.

    I agree that it could loose some of the space on top and it wouldn't hurt to get rid of the spot under the arm (crop or clone).

    It's time to stop being a "wannabe" photographer (per your profile) and turn pro. And when you get your website going, this photo goes on the home page.

    Beautiful job.

    Great shot.
    I would very definitely crop this to a 4 x 5 (my own personal preference.) to get rid of space on top and distracting dark space on bottom

    Wow... thanks for the kind comments... i havent posted here for a while and it is sure nice to hear your thoughts.

    'It's time to stop being a "wannabe" photographer (per your profile) and turn pro. And when you get your website going, this photo goes on the home page.'
    Thanks a million tim. I actually registered my portrait/wedding photography business last august and business is going really well. I have a website too, but cut off the link because i need to update and would really like to get a bit of flash going. Will be adding this for sure.

    Thanks so much again everyone. Will go and crop thisarvo... didnt really even notice the dark area - was too focused on their amazing smiles! oops... thanks for pointing it out x jem xx
