More of my first wedding photography. The candle light was a little tricky so I gave it a soft glow touch up in CS3.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. If you have any suggestions how to better enhance candle light without messing the color up, I would appreciate the information.

Thanks for stopping by,

Mona

While I like the images of your sister's wedding, I feel they are all a little soft - don't like the term "out of focus" - that could be because the camera isn't focussing on the main subject - I'm not familiar with the Sony Cybershot so don't know how the focussing works. For weddings you would be better off with a DSLR and always shoot RAW as you have more control over the final image. You have more control over lighting issues (changing the ISO, White balance etc) and focussing. If you intend to do more weddings, then it may be worth investing in a DSLR but if this is a one off then you are to be commended on the images, I'm sure your sister and her husband loved them.

Thank you for the critique and information. My sister wanted candle light and they were so dark, and you're right about the focus, as it was so dark it seemed to have focused more on the candles in the background. I did the soft touch in CS3 to try and bring them into the foreground more. I'm not familiar with DSLR but it sounds like exactly what I need. I may not do anymore weddings but I am wanting to learn more about photography. Thanks again for your comments and critique they are appreciated.

As I told you already I like the soft touch, but I think this one needs a slight rotation to the right - I saved the image and gave it a try and yes, 0,5 clockwise, then it is exactly balanced. You can also try unsharpen mask at amount 90, radius 10. Think it gives a good result.
Enjoy working on the pics - live it a second time!

Agree with Dennis Mona ..its a nice romantic,dreamy looking image....we dont always have to get bogged down by the technicalities of it all...the 'groom looking happier would have helped immensely tho'...bet the bride liked it..
