i like #3 the most
you did well

it would be nice to the LARGER version
some of them seem rather dark to me... and that might only be because of the downsizing for the web

#6, for example....
i'd like to see the MUCH LARGER version...
what post-processing did you do to the color versions?

thanks for sharing

Number 3 is the most appealing to me , maybe becasue it is framed a bit better . Some of the others seem to be too 'wide' .
I agree. I really learned a lot at this wedding! I use nothing wider than a 50mm for people. I just think some better grouping of people might tighten them up.

They do look a little better full sized, but they are a little dark. Two reasons for this.

1. SB 600 with a GF Cloud drops off pretty fast! (lesson learned)
2. This place was HUGE!! With maybe a 20 foot ceiling. No windows! I need to get an SB800 and use both of my flashes when I can.

#6, for example....

On this one, +0.67 Exposure - 0.0 Recovery - 0.0 Fill Light - 0.0 Blacks - touch of Vignetting. Shot in RAW ISO 320, 1/60th, 50mm f2.2

Most of them were just a little Exposure comp, Fill Light, and Blacks adjustment.

one thing i would suggest to you...
and why i asked you about the post processing

sharpening is something that EVERY SINGLE PICTURE made by a digital SLR needs
every single one

i hope you don't mind if you show you my "thoughts" on your money shot... the one with the glasses... if you do, i'll remove it, immediately:

the group shot... just a little bit of sharpening goes a long way to make this great image even better:

Thanks everyone! I am giving photography my all!

Greg: You are right! I posted the glass shot larger for you and noticed right away that it looked soft. Your sharpening looks great! I will have to start doing that to my web images for sure.

You did a good job with these photos.
I really like #4 where the happy feelings of the day really shows.
I would like #9 to have a bit less DOF to isolate the guy in the front a bit more, or perhaps all of them in focus, but that would be harder to achieve now!

I think you got some great shots!

Greg - I don't want to highjack the thread but can I ask what kind of sharpening you use? USM? Do you have settings that you use for most pictures? It's great to learn this stuff!
