An interesting and very different wedding shot. Its almost voyeuristic, looking at the pair without their knowledge, and it adds an air of mystery.

I know its a candid, spur of the moment shot, but I wondered when I saw the mirror how it would look if it had been reflecting the image in the window, which Ive added in the mod, - though of course the angle of the mirror is wrong.

Apart from that, I cropped a little from the right and added some height to compensate, toned down the highlights and lifted the shadow slightly.

Cheers Willie,really like the touch with the mirror,i left the surrounding areas dark to concentrate the eye on the people,but if you look harder there are more items related to the wedding.
appreciate the crit


Would be good to get others feedback on the mod compared to the original..

I love this very different wedding shot. Love the focus point drawing your eye straight to the couple outside the window, the only crit I would make is that the foreground glass sort of gets in the way, would have looked cleaner without it, (oh and the other glass should have been full of champers Wink LOL)

I like Willie's mod for a different take Smile, but the addition of the reflection in the mirror confuses my eye and draws away from the couple.
