    Very nicely done. The effect on number 4 is very unique and intriguing, not something I see too often.

    Nice to see you active around here Matt.

    I really like the first one, it seems to be a simple posed formal but the symmetry really seems to set it apart.

    The bride has one heck of a great smile, I'll bet you have a whole lot of great shots of her.

    Nice shots. I like how the bride stands out in the first one.
    Her dress is nice and white, but the skin tones still look a little pink.

    Glad your posting more again. :D

    I don't do a lot of very obvious manipulation, but the radial blur kiss shot has become a signature image for me. I started doing it to obscure weird backgrounds and bad lighting behind the kissing couple, but people seemed to like it, and it's easy to do. Normally I've been using the zoom radial blur, but this time I choose the spin option. I always include a copy of the un-zoomed/spun photo too.

    Here's the very first one I did. I guess I don't have any other examples of it on my website.

    I'll be hanging out the next couple of weeks, and then I'll probably be gone again until near X-mas. The wedding biz really took off this year, and I've got every Saturday, and many Friday and Sundays, booked from mid-August to mid-November. Yahoo!

    I really like the 5th image... the one in front of the pillars. And although I like how you've positioned them in them frame, I wonder about including the dark doorframes on the right. When I hold my hand over that bit, I think it's a bit better.

    Very cool shot.

    I was intentionally keeping the doorways on the edge to maintain a sense of the corridor-like space, but I think you are right for the horizontal composition. Normally with a row of big pillars I would shoot from more to the right, and just have the entire background be receding pillars.

    Nice shots! I really like the first one, except that it looks like the bride has some things coming out of her head.
