    Since I created a small stir in a posting on this site about bridal portraits, I thought I would post one in the critique forum that I did about two weeks ago in my outdoor studio. This is an all naturally lit image. Original on Kodak Portra 400NC film then converted to digital by my lab.

    Ok, I quadrupled the size of the original.

    It's a bit too small to critique...can't see it well enough.

    I agree; a larger image would show detail better, if you'd care to resubmit. :) The pose certainly is lovely, but that's all I can tell from this size.

    real nice wedding portrait. i like how dark the area is, it helps center your focus onto the bride. the bride is overexposed in the gown, which i like alot for most wedding photos, so that is good (and i'm sure with slide film it was tough metering the scene to still get detail in the background). the framing of the leaves in the top is nice, but i'm not completely sure if it works here. it doesnt add much, and it distracts me from the bride. I think it would have been better if you were under those leaves and got closer, maybe using a wider lens. nonetheless, this is a good portrait, the lighting is good, and the pose and expression of the bride are nice and quiet. I'm sure she is very happy with it!
