    I asked a friend if I could come to her wedding and take some pics just to experiment and see what I could do. The wedding was at a beautiful spot by a lake but I got there late so I couldn't get any decent shots outdoors.

    Would like some C&C on these. Are they any good?

    The first two are just too dark. Number 3 looks like they are at a funeral, not a wedding.
    Last one is interesting, but like the rest of them it just doesn't say 'wedding' to me.

    I agree partly with fokker - first two are really underexposed. You can try to bring them up in post processing, but I'm not sure you'll like what you find.

    I really like the last one. Great job!

    I agree with all comments. I also find the foreground blur to be ditracting in the last one. I assume this was added in post?

    Thanks for the comments. They're pretty much in line with how I feel about them. The blur in the last pic wasn't added in post. All I did to it was drop the color and add some lighting.

    You should have added the lighting at the "do", and rule one in wedding photography, get there before everyone else. H
