    I like them. My only comment is that when you have a series at the same location, I would make my WB identical when it is in color. Thats just my newbie oppinion though ;)

    Hey could you tell me what type of post processing went into 1 and 2 if you don't mind? I really enjoy that look you pull out in those images. Thanks*

    Thanks for the advice! I did shoot everything at that location with the same WB by setting it manually with a white piece of paper. The difference in tones and curves between those shots were deliberate, and created in photoshop. I was trying to emulate cross processing and film effects. I suppose that these adjustments were my "artistic" take on the originals. :lol: The shots he sends out to the bride will be a little more straight forward (in regards to processing). ;)

    Thanks again for the comments and advice! :thumbup:

    Yeah, thats what I mean. When you PP it, make them identical when they are in color. There's always exceptions though!

    I am horrible at explaining my methods in a detailed manner, so I will suggest a google search on digital faux cross processing techniques. I have always loved the look of film, especially the cross processed or lo-fi/expired film look. Hope this helps.

    The color is screwed up. Why?

    If you did it on purpose, you did not use good judgement.

    This is wedding photography, not rock-band photography.

    Sigh.

    For wedding photography, this look is what a lot of brides are going for when they look for a 'wedding photographer'. So, I don't think the color is screwed up, per se.

    I will say that the first two photos are very aesthetically pleasing, but look like they were taken by two different photographers. The lighting is different, though I don't know the terms to explain it - maybe the first has more saturation from the grass and wood (?), but the second looks different stylistically.

    Which shade of "white" was the paper?

    The vast majority of copy papers that are called "white" have a slight blue hue to them. Georgia-Pacific list 13 different shades of "white" for just their copy & multipurpose papers.

    A custom white balance really needs to be set using a known target like a good 18% grey card (WhiBal - www.rawworkflow.com) or better yet a system like X-RITE's ColorChecker Passport - www.xrite.com.
