    Your lens hood got misaligned.

    For the first picture, it looks like your lens hood wasn't clicked into position. It was rotated off.

    Both pictures have mixed lighting. You had your flash on the hot shoes, I presumed. If the lighting in the church is florescent light, you'd get a slight green cast because your flash's light fell off as it travel farther into the picture. It wasn't able to over power the ambient light. I would gel the flash to balance it with the florescent lighting next time.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with your D3.

    BTW, you have a D3... have you tried shooting it without flash? :biggrin:

  4. Thank you! Now I remember fixing it.
     
  5. It was an SB-800 on a bracket. I turned off the flash right after this and shot at ISO 4000. The non-flash photos are much better. I haven't adjusted anything in PP yet. I was just concerned about these ones.
