    Very nice work.
    I posted a pic earlier and a pipe was coming out of the brides head. Becareful with the fountain. Maybe blur it out a bit? Just my 2 cents. Great work though.

    It might just be me, but the blur looks alittle to extreme. Other than that, great shots.

    NIce poses, but I also think that they are blurred a little to much....when taking the photo try to single focus on the for front person and then the back will automatically blur. I am asuming you done this blur with photoshop....

    It looks like the blur from the background is affecting the people as well.

    alrighty then :) I like the comments.

    The blur - the two side photos are not artificial blurs, the only thing I did was vignetting. These were straight out of the camera except for a crop & a bit of darkening. The middle one is primarily lens blur, with slight photoshop blur around the corners.

    I have a couple more photos of this pose that I can try (they're not blurred as much)

    The blur is perfect. As a triptych the symmetry to the elements is spot on. Well done sir, be sure to post some more of your shots from this particular session.

    I like it!

    My only problem with it is the bride is on the left and the groom on the right, but on the photo in the center it's the opposite - for some reason it bugs my OCD. :D

    Thanks, boy am I glad to hear this. I am not one that needs constant praise for my work, and usually I'd prefer criticism. But it's hard to swallow 3 out of 4 people accusing the blur of being fake and photoshoppy.

    I have a handful more photos (almost done editing them) that I can't wait to show.

    :) I wondered about that, thanks for pointing it out. Not sure if opposites would be good or not.

    If I swapped the sides, would it look funny them facing inward? I mean, "technically" the subject is supposed to be facing the rest of the photo, right? But, in this case, bodies facing away and heads facing inward seems to contribute, what are your thoughts on the direction they're facing?

    The way they're facing indicates two people, separate and apart (left and right parts) who came together through marriage (center part). It's quite romantic and well-done IMO.

    Very nice. Love the third one... not at all a usual "stiff" shot like I see so frequently.

    BTW, love your avatar. :lol:

    Incredible job on the DOF then, on actually keeping what you wanted focused to be in focus. Just a comment on that it looked alittle extreme if you were attempting it in post processing

    Also... are you not posting for critique? Or are you looking for praise. My first thought when you post here is for criticism. No picture is ever perfect, especially when seen so someone elses opinion. So that's why I responded with what I didn't like about it. There is a tremendous amount to like, but I decided to point on the single thing I didn't. Just an explanation on why I singled out the DOF/Blur.

    Great job though.
    Cheers.
