    Hey
    Would appreciate some feedback on a couple of shots i took at my bros wedding.

    I am particularly interested in peoples view of my post processing. I shot in RAW and basically did a little cropping, white balance, change to B+W and some sharpening.

    really not sure if i am over/under processing esp with regards to my sharpening. Not sure if they will look the same as they do on my monitor on laptop but here they are.

    Thanks for looking

    Let me preface this by saying, I am an amateur, but here are my two cents. The first two are REALLY NICE. The third one, I don't really like the way that the one man is in the direct sun and the other two are in the shadows. Number 4 is REALLY nice. It has a nice, natural feel to it. #5 is sweet, except that you chopped off the one little girl's hands (a mistake I make MUCH TOO OFTEN!!). #5 just feels a little too underexposed. Now a pro might come along and say something completely different so take my words with a grain of salt. I'm just a newbie!!

    I too don't think I am too qualified to give proper critiques, but I like them all. They are nice and crisp and look good. What were these shot with, lens wise?

    I use an 18-50 f/2.8 sigma and a 70-200 f/4 canon. The canon is the dogs nuts.....

    Some of those are a touch too oversharpened in my opinion. For an event like a wedding, maybe a more softer approach is best here. . .overall though, I think it's cool.

    Number 1 is my favorite. I think number 3 has a lot of good elements, but I'd have to agree that I don't like the shadows.

    I have to agree with most people that number one is the best out of this set.

    #1 was a real nice catch with their happy faces. The only negative I could see was the right side of the woman's face was a little dark, but I don't know what you could have done about that without ruining the rest of the pic.

    #2 was maybe a little too tight, and too bad you didn't get the younger guy to look at your camera.

    Overall, excellent set of images. In particular, 1, 2, & 4.

    The light in #3 is....interesting. At first, I was like, "bah! they are hidden in the shadows!" but then I noticed the light on the side of the one guys face. I like the concept, but it doesn't quite work for me.

    #5...almost there! Great image, but still a tad dark.

    #6 is nice, love the background, but the bride is too dark.

    I like your sharpening, actually.
