Had a little practice a week ago for my friends upcoming wedding and took this. I quite like the shot but would appreciate suggestions on how this type of image could be improved upon. When I took the pic, it was just a spur of the moment thing, and the angle kind of just happened. I would appreciate any constructive criticism and advice you can offer, thanks!

A lovely sharp shot and great as a candid as he obviously has no idea you're taking a picture. But, from my point of view as someone who has recently got married Smile I would have been really annoyed the best man was on his phone and not doing something a bit more useful !! So from that point of view this shot would have upset me a bit! I'm also not keen on the angle but thats just my preference, it looks untidy to me.
Maybe shots of the best man talking to the guests and generally doing best man "stuff" would be better.

its got the makings of a good shot , the angle is a bit crazy and youve unfortunatley cropped in too close. the incorrect exposure could prob be pulled back with levels and it would have been nice to see a bit more of the building in the background to place the shot in some kind of context. pretty good for a first effort in an environment where everything happens at 100 miles an hour from the togs point of view
