Hi, I see you have done this in black and white! The good with black and white is that it can take distractions out, to make different colours looking even. It also gives a timeless feeling to your pictures. I guess it might have been a moment of sheer ectasy when you were given the request to shoot the wedding pictures, a task even people with experience into photography find challenging. Do you mind if I ask you to evaluate your picture and think what could have been done better/differently? I shall help you by saying their pose and the format of the picture are fine.

of course lol as this wasn't my camera i couldnt get it off of black and white im actually really surprised its not smuged as i had three kids hanging on my legs not a gd way to work trust lol.
there are so many things i would haved changed and would have done if this wasn't a late wedding it was so rushed even the ppl at the reg was in a rush i littery had time to ask them to stand together.
i would have tryed different angles maybe had a play around with the shutter speed like i said to my mum wen the wedding was over with a little more time and a little knowledge of the actually camera i would have done so many things different.
have any adive i would love to know some of the best had to work for thier knowledge .

I would had asked them to look at the camera!

They probably focus on another photographer your pic may had looked more engaging if you could be behind that photographer, but professional wedding photographers don't appreciate that, understandably. I would also try to go a bit left so I hide the chair behind them, or cover it with the vase behind the bride. Rushing may allow you take a picture or allow you to make a mistake. Try to keep a cool mind when you shoot, that would be my advise.

When we look at our pictures we also think of the situations that they were taken. This is normal but normally evaluators judge us for what they see rather of what it happen. You are the first who can make a judgement of your picture, so learn to look it like a third person, a stranger. Look at the comments made on the picture in the gallery where a woman in blue dress holds a scale with her both feet up in the air, it's very a recent one. The first comment says that the phone on the left is a distruction. Is it? Don't you normally have your mobile phone by your side? Does it matter that is there? I don't mind, it's just a fun shot. The same way a chair is placed behind a desk but does it annoy as much? I think yes, what do you think?
