This is beautiful; double portraits are tricky when you have two strong personalities vying for the camera's attention but this is very neatly balanced.
Glad all went well. Pity you missed the punch-up though... Wink

The colour version works best for me Barbara but as ever, I'd love to see a colour popped version with just the rims of the glasses and the flower on the other girl's wrist in colour.

Well done, Barbs. I think both are excellent. Strange how the mood is changed between mono and colour. I find V1 quite dreamlike and quite surprised myself by slightly preferring it to the colour version which is extremely good in the first place! The balnce of colour in V2 works so well.

Love the mono, but I think the colour just pips it because of the matching sunglasses and the bracelet.

An RC from me but i can't decide between them, Barbara. I like the pink in v2 but the dreamier quality of v1. Maybe some selective colouring is the way to go?

Great shot of the girls,character and poise showing through here. Two totally different young ladies, I wonder what the one on the right was thinking behind these eyes?

Marvellous and the monochrome is by far the better image, all the character in the expressions is in the b&w the colour just confuses the image.

Both look very good, Barbara, but it's definitely the colour version for me, especially 'cos of (a) those pink glasses, (b) the pink wrist thingee, and (c) those lovely freckles!

I'm so glad the wedding went well without anything failing like the batteries, memory cards...and the weather!
