Hello all after some time of absence from the forum. I'm coming back with my latest photoshoot from the orthodox baptism of my niece Danai.
I have mentioned this before, that I'm just an amateur photographer so any comments in my photos are welcomed to help me improve myshelf.

The baptism was on a small othrodox church and a professional photographer was also present. I had my D7000 and my flash (with a correction jel) bouncing on the walls. It was such an enjoyable shoot that I have picked a lot of photos to post here. Most of the photos I delivered (about 300) are color, but some I worked them in BW.

So... the photos..

I, myshef, am very happy for the event and therefor love all the photos. You would be more objective to judge them as photographs.
This was my first baptism :)

Given the venue and circumstances, these came out well, however I see many which need WB correction and leveling.

Thank you.
About white balance I normally correct it, but in this case it is the mood of the ceremony I wanted to keep.
About leveling I am sure some/many photos need it.. I'm not that good in this part and in this case I worked a bit fast in my post processing to deliver :(
