    I like the idea of #1 i would have positioned them more to the right to get more of a frame wrapped around them with the wooden thing. wooden thing = can't remember what the hell its called lol.

    #2 i like the comp in that shot. i'd play around with the coloring a little bit maybe b&w or focal b&w and keep the flower in color imo.

    #3 i just don't like the shot at all sorry :( to much going on in my eyes i bounce all over the picture my eyes don't focus on the bride, I would have played with the wall behind her, put the bride against the wall and have a very nice background with a decent dof.

    A little fill flash would have benefitted all of these.

    Me neither lol its a wooden garden thing!
    #3 was while we were waiting to go into the registry office, so it was a spur of the moment thing!

    I only really had my pop-up, and I felt it was too harsh in most of the photos I used it with!

    Here's two more for CC

    I think the main points with respect to the specific images have been covered, but your settings make NO sense to me. Shutter priority, 1/60 of a second and apertures between f18-20?

    Why shutter priority, especially outside on a nice day?

    WHY such a small aperture?

    WHY only 1/60 of a second? Even a rapid hand-movement can blur at that speed.

    2 and 3 seem a little soft to me. 2 also looks a little underexposed.

    Go into the Flash menu, put the pop-in in manual mode, and turn the power level down. Start at about 1/16 power. Adjust to taste.

    They are really soft to me as well. I don't see any that are sharp. Out of them all I like the one of the bride getting into the car. For the first group shot I think your aperature was to small. This sort of shot requires an f-stop of around 5.6-8.0.

    Another thing I would watch out for are your backgrounds. It'll take some time to really get used to but when you look through the viewfinder look at the subject and ensure pose, clothes, shadows, etc. are ready to go. Then look past the subject and make sure the background is clear of any unecessary clutter.
