    I like it :D
    Without the gentleman and the flowers, I think she might look sad. But as a whole, I think she looks at ease. Very content and relaxed. The tones work well.

    I can see why you might think she looks sad but I think you just happened to catch her in a reflective moment...I would tend to think of it as more of a contented look considering the circumstances....lets give it the benefit of the doubt....she just got married so she must be happy:D try not to read between the lines...just my advice; take it or leave it.

    either way it's a lovely image.

    hehehe...just a double take but .....she kind of resembles you :lol:

    How did you make her eyes white like that?

    I've been trying to find an easy process to take out the red in the "white" area of peoples eyes.

    I agree with JonK, she looks content. You never know she might have taken something to calm her nerves down alittle, I did when I got married, looooong time ago. I really enjoy viewing this photograph, it really has a soft and innocent feel to it, and you captured her beautiful eyes just perfect. Nicely photographed girl !

    haha..never thought that she looked like me before! haha funny.

    Thanks for the comments guys! I agree. I think she looks relaxed..maybe a bit worn from the day and the stress. Really I guess its a true reflextion of a bride on her "big day"!

    bace I actually didn't do anything to her eyes. I guess she just has naturally clear eyes! I do find it a challenge still to whiten a persons eyes. I usually just go in there and in a very low opasity try to clone some of the redness out.

    I like this shot, im unsure about the sad eyes. But i was watching a DVD the other night "Masterclass Photography" and it was telling you all about the poistioning of the head determines the emotion. Its a great shot though, have you shown the couple? what was their impressions?
