THE LIKELY LADS !

By Imagephotographics
Evening everyone !

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on MORTAR ATTACK, very much appreciated !

Well, just about come to the end of a busy weeks editing of last Sunday's wedding shoot. Thought I'd share an image of the best men & groom - what a bunch these were !!

What a day it's been, I was on the last couple of images to be edited, when the electric went off, when it eventually came back on, loads of the images had been lost - I was NOT happy ! Thankfully John managed to retrieve them, and put a smile back on my face ! Talk about panic !

Anyway, hope this image portrays what hard work this wedding was - and even though they were difficult to control, they did give us a good laugh.

BEST LARGE IF YOU HAVE TIME !

Will catch up with everyone tomorrow.

Chris

I'm just surprised that there was room for anyone else at the event (the bride for example...). Fun, and so glad you retrieved the pictures. I've had nasty moments with a power failure landing at a critical moment, it's not funny.
I like the way the colour of the ties balances the red.

What a lovely photo and great title - and the red and blue is so appropriate for election week Wink
Glad you managed to get the images back after the power failure - I wish I had a John here who could do things like that - Terry is even less technically competent than me!

Glad you managed to retrieved your images Chris. Sounds like a nervous experience.

Selective colouring is well used here, and what an excellent capture.
You're so lucky to be able to make money with photography, keep up the good work.

Great photo group - nice and classic manipulation, but in mono convertion looks more artistic - like a statuar group (see Rodin for example). The problem is the sky - if you don't mind. It looks dull and unexpressiv, maybe just in B&W. But this image is strong and very special about composition - congratulations. Smile

Thank you for your comment - there are always helpful

Yes, always back up, but the power cut really caused some problems ! And also, the first thing I do with wedding images, is to copy them all to a separate drive before I start editing - I just thought I had lost a couple of days editing that I'd have to do all over again - but thankfully I have a clever husband that retrieved everything.

Fab wedding shot, anyone would love to have this as a record of not only the day, but you seem to have capture a spirit and time in these lads life, which when there all old and grey, they will be glad you have captured.
Cracking iconic image.

Great image, & very clever use of the colour-pop technique.

Just a couple of things. I'm not sure about the lad on the left leaning over, though I don't mind that he's in conversation. Adds some dynamism to the shot.

I'm also not keen on the suggestive holding of the bench arm. At least I hope it's the arm of the bench... Smile

Great shot, & it's nice to see some less formal shots in amongst the usual posed weddings photos.

There was no way on earth that any " Formal " shots could have been gotten from this bunch - I think they thought they were still on their stag party - but they did give us a good laugh ! (Not at the time though, but certainly when looking through some of the shots when we got home).
