I hated to cut the length of her bouquet but I wanted to really show closeness in this shot and cropping the top of the heads seemed to help out as well. I did a version with selective color on the flowers but that seemed to take away from them.

hmm... i am undecided about this one... in some respects i like the tightness, but in other respects i am bothered by the cut-offs.. i like the expression and the exposure though..

let me think on this one and see if some others have some insight..

Yes the cropping kind of concerned me at first but I ended up liking it. What hendered the shot is the bouquet having a long tail on it. It reached past their knees. Cropping the tail of the bouquet partially really made it look awkward.

Shadow on the grooms nose distracts me.

Maybe if you bounced some light in there or used a key light.

Nice shot generally though.
