I can see that the blur effect might be romantic, but it is a shame that we cannot see the bride's face - a more posed kiss might have worked better.

The couple will love it, but it does look more like they accidentally ran into each other and had their faces smooshed up. I hope theyve figured out the right way at this stage!

Mono conversion is good, blur adds the dream factor, - just need a kiss!

Not very keen I'm afraid. Looks like a collision rather than a delicate kiss and al rather grey. The backlighting needed a bit of help with a slight burst of flash or a reflector placed low in front of the couple.

I used to 'do' a lot of weddings back in the days of B&W as prime source. Spent hours in my darkroom printing hundreds of orders. Whilst I still like my mono, weddings generally should be in colour for me.

First of all, totally disagree with the comments about weddings needing to be in colour - balderdash Grin Grin

Speak to most couples and they crave black and white as well as colour. Equally, there is nothing wrong at all with unposed kissing.. it looks far more natural for a start however, here we do seem to have captured it at just the wrong moment.

When I know a kiss is likely to be coming, I rattle off many frames as fast as my camera will allow.

Soft focus has it's place as long as it is not overdone. I think it works well but the overall lack of contrast renders the photo a little lack-lustre. I think perhaps a little more work in Photoshop would help this photo enormously Smile
Thanks for the advice, I'm not a pro so I think I still have a way to go!
Cheers for the comments everyone Smile I do have a better shot of the kiss but I liked this one for some reason ;p
