Morning everyone,

Many thanks for your comments & clicks on yesterday's PRINCESS FOR A DAY, very much appreciated, and a special thank you to Al for his UA on FAIRYTALES WILL COME TRUE.

Another of Jess taken last week, thought I'd do black/white for a change, this was shot down at the Mumbles. We were so lucky to have had such a lovely day, it couldn't have been better. I've just added another image of Jess, it was the end of the day and we were having a bit of fun with her running around on the sand, left this one in colour to show just how lovely the day was !

Hope you like it,

A gorgeous dress. Like both images, they both show all the wonderful detail in the back of the dress.................Sandy

lovely details, great exposure, would be funny to see a bride running away on a beach.
nice one, ant.

Wonderful images Chris with superb light and shadows, think both are on even par although the b/w does accentuate the light more.

What a wonderful dress and beautiful model - both versions work well, though I do like the foot in v2 !! I know that sounds strange, but she gives the impression of actually running away by being barefoot, and not just having fun swirling that amazing dress she is in WinkSmile

Two real beauties

Good work Chris and very well controlled to hold the detail in the back of the dress. Many of these bridal gowns have such intricate detail which some toggs fail to capture and normally end up with a blown out dress. Some do not even think of taking shots of the back.

Like that dress Chris, good details and whites too.
Certainly looks like you had a good day for the shoot.

I quite agree - IMHO it would be better without the shadow on the back of the dress but nevertheless and excellent shot

You have shown the dress off to perfection Chris.

That's one fabulous dress, must have cost a fortune I guess. Hope they kept some money for the wedding photographs. Nice use of light & shade, plus the monochrome version.

In the colour version you have really nailed the texture and tones within the white dress. I feel a completely different mood in the mono. Both are stunning.

'Wonderful light, processing, & tonal gradation in v1,' here, Chris. Love that 'flowing Wedding dress' & her beautiful blond hair in v2. Artistic work, par excellence'.
