Nice one Hards80, I like what you have done to that and TBH not something I thought of doing to improve it.

You must be joking Chato. That first pick, with the details of the painted nail, the finger tips and bride's cuticle, the blues, the diagonals, etc. is a piece of art. I can recover the story of their lives.

By golly, it does look better in black and white. I'm sticking with my opinion. About double the distance, would Still be a closeup, and you could Still see the details. But I at least would be more comfortable.

What we all have to remember is that one man's like is another's dislike (or woman's ) we cant all like the same thing or life would be boring, but we should respect other peoples point of view instead of getting hot under the collier about it or putting them down.
Personally I don't like it in B&W but that's down to my taste

After seeing Dustin's take on the pic, my only complaint is the finger with the nail. If it wasnt there that would be a very good illustration of the ring and the moment it gets placed on the finger. The soft edge Dustin has done is almost cliche for this kind of shot, and you can see why. It really sets the mood.

i agree, mine was cliche. if i were to spend more time on it, selective blurring would have worked alot better than just a quick noise reduction layer lol.

On the portait photo a background light can be used to illuminate the background, gaining more depth or separation in your image between the couples dark hair and the background. This light is usually placed low to the ground on a small stand about half way between your subject and the background. A low power light is generally used.
