    Those are wonderful. Nicely composed. Only thing I would bring up is the redness in the eyes. Other than that, they look great!

    Thanks! I did mention that I still need to fix the blood-shot eyes and just haven't had a chance to sit down and do it.

    Oops, I didn't see that! The images distracted me :wink:
     
  5. I think these are delightful images and I am sure the bride will like them.

    Very pretty bride... only things I might change in the last 2 images is to clone out the leave on the left side of the image it looks like it going to reach out and pinch her.. and may be whiten the teeth in the last one... I know only nit picking but only suggestions that I see!!!

    Thank you, Brad! I'm glad I'm finally getting busy as well.:wink:

    Thank you! I appreciate you taking the time to comment.

    I never even saw the two leaves and now it really makes me laugh. I will clone that out tonight and I thought about the teeth on the last one as well. Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment.

    They look great Debbi. What was the lens or lenses you used for these shots?
     
  14. Those are beautiful! I just ordered a Nikon 105mm macro that is supposed to be great for portraits. Can't wait for it to get here!
     
  15. beautiful shots
    your redos need to be redone a bit more....
    her eyes are still too red, in my estimation

    in fact... she has more red in her eyes than any bride i've seen in recent history (which is NOT YOUR FAULT, of course)
    not sure what that is

    i'd work on those eyes a bit more
    and 11 x 14 or similar-sized print would really show how unattractive her eyes are

    First of all: great work! I especially like the first two images.

    As far as critique: this is a personal opinion so please take it as such--the skin softening on the face in the last couple shots is overdone in my opinion. The reason I say that is the viewer eye immediately goes from the soft / smooth face down to the skin on the neck and arm and the difference is obvious--thus it emphasizes the 'fakeness' of the face. I would either back off it a bit to reveal a little texture of the face to keep it looking 'real' and/or soften the 'comparison' skin so that the contrast between skin areas isn't so obvious.

    Again, this is my personal opinion--but I did see it right away. Whether or not the bride will totally depends on how she 'sees' the picture.

    Fantastic work overall though; these are great captures.

    Thank you, Phil. I used the Sigma 18-50 2.8 and 50-150 2.8. I'm finding both lenses are excellent and much lighter than Nikon's comparable lenses.

    Thanks, Helen!

    Thank you, Greg. I agree about the eyes and am going to work on that this weekend. Her allergies were really giving her fits. It was extremely windy with a storm coming in so that certainly didn't help. She has beautiful eyes so I definitely want them to look their best. These were really quick edits. Thank you for taking the time to comment and provide such helpful C&C!

    Appreciate it Sean! I am going to work on these images (from the beginning and not being rushed) this weekend. Gotta put that long weekend to good use! I will definitely watch the processing of the skin. Thank you!
     
  18. Love the first two - Great work.
