I love #3 Fantastic!
Diffuse glow in the first two?
the last one is pretty cool, like the concept....although a little to dark....maybe a touch brighter in the sky....add some blue and orange in the sky would be sweet!
wow very cool series. I don't think IMO that you could make the last pic lighter as it might either blow out the sun of the dress or both... that last one is awesome though
I like 1, 2, and 4 I think they should all stay the way they are... But the 3rd one does not make me think it is a wedding pic? Not sure what is going on there, it kinda looks like flowers or a dress or some sheets in front of her. The eyes are in perfect focus and it is like they are following me.... I dont know why it kinda weirds me out! Sorry. The other 3 are amazing!
my wife would have never walked in that tall grass and weeds like the first one !!!!
Yes, diffuse glow.
Yeah, a bit too stormy I guess in the last one.
Thanks to everyone for taking the time to C&C.
Wow - great set. Seems like these are mush better than the last ones. I'm sure the bride is thrilled!
Just wonderign if the eyes could use a bit more pop on the thrid image? Just in the iris area..
Love 3 and 4. They are both gorgeous photos. I like to see images like 4 in a wedding book. Too many wedding photogs forget to be playful, funky and an image like that can make such a difference in a book.
1 and 2 are very nice but nothing to write home about if you know what I mean. 2 I would actually have cropped some on the left and added some on the right.
I don't and won't shoot weddings so this is just my personal thoughts.
#1 - very pretty shot, a touch overexposed on the center of the dress and it is showing a slight blue cast in the whites but it is not so distracting to make me dislike the shot.
#2 Again a nice shot, very classic and the blown out window is so in with art directors now. A perfect example of artistically breaking the technical rules. Again there is a bit of over exposure in the center of the dress but much less then in #1 and the white balance looks much better here too.
#3 Sorry the crop just does not work for me. It is too tight and too much of the story is lost as a result. The tight crop forces me to look too long to find the story line and by the time I do I am bored and more on. There is just not enough emotion, tone or contrast to grab my attention.
#4 Is either brilliant post production or brilliant luck to have such a dramatic sky at the end of a wedding shoot. I kind of wish the groom was in the shot too, maybe hunkered down in front of the car hiding. I would not make the image brighter, I think it would detract from the mood.
#2 is my fav of the bunch but #4 is a great bit of editorial bridal fashion
Thanks Bobby, and other people too for spending the
time to C&C. I'm paying close attention to all the
comments, I find them very helpful even if I don't
