Thank you! I was trying to blur out the background more, add a little softness to the bride and I'll try something with the exposure. :smile:Does not look bad at all really. The dress is not blown out, however the face and overall image could be a tad sharper and an increase in exposure.
You might want to try to reduce the shadows at the eyes. I'm also find the tree in the background somewhat distracting, but there may be little you can do about that in post.
Thanks guys! I"m taking my time in what I'm doing. Just be patient with me - I've taken note and will work on both suggestions. My processing skills are very weak but I'm working on them! :biggrin:Nicely done Dianne. I would also clone out the little flower behind her behind.
I started out in weddings as a second shooter. I had so much fun, I decided to pursue it as a part time profession. If you're relaxed and having fun, the people around you will also relax, so laugh and have fun.THANK YOU GREG! As is, I just got a call to be a 2nd shooter at a small wedding. Dunno whether to run away or take a deep breath and go for it. I know I'll get to be in with the bride whiole she's dressing,etc. That should be fun - I've shot 1 wedding and that was my cousin's. She was a bridzilla for sure and a few other words.
For what it's worth, I kinda had fun doing my cousin's wedding. Just wish she would have been more cooperative. It will be fun - and since it's small and I'm not the main photographer, the pressure is off.I started out in weddings as a second shooter.

After she's dressed, try the "Miss America pose" you'll see it work.
