The Bride

By dathersmith  
Managed a bit of bridal portraiture on Sunday at The Grange Hotel and couldn't resist the natural light of this window. The colour version is nice but I'm having a bit of a mono period at the moment, hope you like it.

As you probably gathered i like this very much Darren. My only niggle is the skirting line not been level just unbalances this image for me, try a tweak on the bottom left hand corner with the distort tool it looks so much better, well for me anyway Wink

A real stunner darren, and one that i'd be over the moon with if i'd taken it myself

I'd be interested to know if you used a reflector to throw some of that beautiful light back at the bride, or did you just expose for her dress?

have my UA with pleasure

Wow thanks Phil, appreciate your award. Also thanks for the comment Phil (L).

I did try using a reflector but the corridor is as wide as you see here and I couldn't get it out of the shot so in the end I simply exposed for the dress and had to accept that the veil would blow out. I kind of like it that way though.

Wonderful shopt Darren, congrats on POTW. Tend to disagree with the comments about the skirting etc, I think it adds a touch of imperfection to a stunning image.
