. . . and Mike too, if you'd picked up on the rhyme.

I personally prefer the colour with this one; #2 the mono and #3 a wider crop.

All comments welcome and big groups planned for tomorrow to wrap up the series at the church Smile

Another very fine set, Tim, do rather like the square crop, and fro me the colour version wins, so V1's my fave.

Like the full set, all superb shots. The Groom is posed perfectly, foot behind the bride, other one pointing towards the camera. I was given a tip at a wedding last year from the Registrar, that is that the groom should be on the bride's right - that way he's always "on the right side of his wife"something to do with the sword arm being free to defend his wife. Please don't take this as a criticism as it's not, just a tip I picked up. I think they are all wonderful images.

Like phil's comment, but Tim you have really excelled with these, V1 and V4 real winners, I do prefer yours to the mod as the greenery adds impact to this shot, and all so well placed, great but still cannot be swayed to the mono. love the colours
Hows the lens?

Nice shots Tim, - and I agree the colour is better for this.

I did a mod on V1, - I found the tone a little too warm, so adjusted colour balance which has whitened the dress, increased contrast a tad, and sharpened s little.



Regards

Thankyou everyone for the comments.

Phil, something to bear in mind and in the meantime I'll tell Mike that he needs to practice swordplay with his left hand Wink

Ian; thankyou for the mod; I'd not spotted the portrait possibilities which might be very useful when juggling the album pages.

Willie; thankyou - reviews of my new laptop informed me that it had a superb looking screen, and indeed nearly all shots look lovely on it. In reality, it makes it a very bad choice for editing and with it's glass sheet it fools my colour calibrator and apparantly all the other ones too. I'm trying to sort a solution so that I can tweak all the colours before printing, but in the meantime I'm guessing with the skin looking yellowish, knowing that it will look reddish in reality! So you're mod is extremely helpful in steering me onto the right track

I like v1 the color works for me a self preference, your pose in and crop in v1 is very good I like the shoulders all slanting at a angle the lady 3 from the top could have been turned just a tad to match 1 and 2 , I hope you don't mind me suggesting the brides maids to have there flowers all held in the same position. A nit pick form a rookie as I find this to be a shot one I would like very much in my wedding book.
Your lighting and detail is excellent.

Thankyou everyone for the votes and comments.

Really useful feedback Lee and a couple of aspects that I hadn't noticed or considered; definitely things to remember for the future.
I had to suggest leaving a blank step to get the heads inline, but I didn't offer much input beyond that. Hopefully as I get more comfortable with the basics, I can get better at spotting these details

Of the first 3, yep, V1's the ace. And the way the dress spills out into the frame towards the bottom left corner gives a nice echo to the 3 bridesmaids reaching towards the upper left corner. Nice sort of 'arrow' formed.

V4 is just superb Smile

Hi Tim great shots well cropped from the cam shot in #3, I like 3, but, I feel that those hands in #4 could have been placed behind their backs, or at their sides...Why do us blokes have to stand like we are at the loo, not a good pose for any shot I feel, I prefere the Admiral Posture, perhaps they could have got their heads in closer to the bride and groom, with their horrible hands hidden to give that shot more fun and emotion, they are all friends afterall.

Tighter crop works better for me — there's nothing going on to the right to make me want to include it. Likewise with #4, to be honest.

Not sure about this right-hand thing, though. You could equally argue that the bride being at the groom's right hand puts her in the favoured position:

``And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. [...] Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels [...] And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.'' — Matthew 25:32-34,41,46.

That's not looking too rosy for the groom Dave! Heaven is sounding intersting as that's where you've assigned all the women, but as a bloke there should be some opportunity to avoid hell, or were you implying that that fate is reserved only for married men Wink

And I'd always thought that the bloke was meant to be on the right so that as they walked along the pavement he was the one closest to the traffic and keeping the woman safe Smile

And on a slightly more serious note regarding the crops; I just think I've got into the habit of liking my subjects off centre; probably not a priority for the formal group shots!

Tim

Yes, in these days where we aspire towards equality between the sexes, there is the unfortunate corollary that he's at her left hand so going to hell... Well, at least, if she has any say in the matter. Grin
