    Some smaller 4x6s of a recent wedding shoot. You may remember the flower girl from other pictures. Equipment D700/D200 35/105VR/70-200 for most shots and occasional SB-600s

    Keeping with good wedding lighting this was around 2oclock at the beach with a zillion other beachdwellers...:eek: 



    Great father of the bride in tears

    Find the camera in this image:biggrin:
    Hasty blur here..will re-edit:wink:

  2. as a non expert, i think these are absolutely lovely. if they were my wedding photos, i would be thrilled with them. i especially love the set up for number 7.

    Thanks! I would have enjoyed better light but the wparty was excellent. For 7 I try to add a few creative shots among the "required." They may blow some up on canvas so I will process with greater care those selected.
    thank you

    not a fan of selective coloring, and the blur picture looks terrible.

    Otherwise, great job!

    No selective coloring done(B&W layer and contrast layer) and yes the blur picture is a result of my poor judgement on DOF while shooting but they love it and that is what counts. Thanks for the critiques and complements

    So I reworked the "blur" picture with a bit more care:biggrin:

    Added a few more while I was at it.

  10. nice fun images, but almost every shot of the bride the dress is blown out. Not sure if you can bring it down a bit, but I would do that before doing any printing.

    is that your flash set up that is firing into the shot?

    Thanks neepers! Black suited and black vested groomsman with a bride and 12 noon sun was rough. I certainly could have done better though.
    glad you liked them.
    that was simply someone holding the door upon and light spilling in from the sun. I may backlight my next reception at the entrance with a flash as I liked the look.
