    This wedding was suppose to be a sunset wedding, however, it was cloudy and rainy.

    Im not sure if going out at night was the best idea.

    IMO

    1,2,4,6,8 are all underexposed. The others have pretty harsh flash lighting on them with the dark background.

    i think the one with the kids is OOF maybe? may just be the compression.

    Im sure others can go more in depth

    I think you definitely do have some really good shots in there! Were you just using the flash off of your camera? In some of the shots, the background is really dark but you should be able to correct most of that in post processing. The shot of the rings is nice but you need to correct the color balance in post processing. You last shot of the two kids is very cute but you need to watch what is in the background...maybe shoot from a different angle or move them just a bit to hide any unwanted things behind them....that is something I am still working on! :) All together though, you definitely have a nice bunch of shots though! I'm shooting my first wedding in August and very nervous about it!

    Good Job!

    I agree that shots are a little dark that is partially due to lack of flash and also they appear darker on the forum for some reason. I agree with you stranger going out at night is NOT a good idea, but the bride showed up late and wedding started 20 mins late (it was a night wedding anyways). So the bride came out of her vehicle and immediately walked down the aisle! this wedding was CHAOS!
    Thank you for the comments Fred and Stacey

    Hi Mander,
    I think you are off to a good start, but there are few things that I see wrong with these pics.
    1. I agree that the majority of these are underexposed and the flash ones are a bit harsh. What kind of lens/lenses are you shooting with?
    2. Watch composition. In #1 and #2 there are trees coming out of their heads. Also, the last one would have benefitted from a much closer crop.
    3. A few of them, especially #3, have color casts. The third looks exteremely blue, so remember to set your white balance properly.
    I think my favorite of the set is #4.

    Thank you for pointing out the color tone. I corrected it in PS, is this better?

    Are these all SOOC? What camera are you using? What editing program do you have? If you check out your histogram it will show you the exposure and help you determine if it has any issues. I did an edit - i hope you don't mind. If you do I can take it away.

    yes, the images are SOOC, I use a Nikon D80 w/ a 50mm 1.8 and a 18-135 3.5 lens. I have two editing programs CS3 and photoimpact. The edit is nice, what did you do? blur the image then sharpen the subjects?

    You also used a Panasonic DMC-FZ30 for your last three shots as well. ;)
