I agree with Jeff - she look a bit unhappy on the 'happiest day of her life'! Grin But, hey this reflects reality... and is therefore a realistic portrayal.

Photo look a touch flat. I have increased definition a bit with a levels adjustment and use of the shadows/highlights tool in the mod I've uploaded for you. I've also sued the spot healing brush to get rid of minor skin blemishes. Hope that helps.

Theres been some good comments already, so I will add mine.

The pic is crooked, 0 the verticals shes in front of are way off.

Her expression is more wistful than sad, though a smile is definitely better.

It can do with a little more contrast, and Ive loaded a mod with straightening, sharpening, cropping to place her eyes on a third, - and tried to giver her a hint of a smile for fun.

I'm afraid this one doesn't make it. All said above. was someone else actually taking a picture for which she was posing and you grabbed one from the side.

She does look rather miserable and not probably the ideal wedding shot. Also, as said, a bit flat.

Thank you all for your input, I agree the verticals do look out now you have pointed it out, I was doing some wedding preperation shots for the bride and this was just before she was ready to leave. I thought this captured her in a moment of thought before she was about to leave for the church, this was never intended for the album as she was unaware I was taking the shot. Great feedback from you all.
Many thanks

A sad reflection on our litigious society. Wink
