Hi Venivedi,

Just a few quick comments on the top 4 images. This is a very superficial criticism, based on what hit me straight away, if I have time, I'll try to look a bit closer.

Image 1. Horizontals not horizontal. Perspective distortion not corrected fully (easiest seen in vertical elements round windows an columns). A bit dark for my liking.

Image 2. Bride and Groom not set into background, Groom in particular looks to be hovering above the floor. Light shadowing would probably "anchor" him a little.

Image 3. Bride and Groom isolated from background, because blur of background seems too much for focal distances implied by image.

Image 4. Same as 3.

There are many things that have been very well done, these are just the ones that struck me as "wrong".

In all the images the bride's veil continues to have the background table showing through - even when in front of the window. A little transparency would have been welcome here.
Like Gary said for image 3 and 4, but I think that the effect is caused by the very harsh outline of the couple, just a wee bit of blurring might help them blend them in better.
These are minor points - any happy couple would be even happier with your rendition!

Thanks a lot for your critics. ;)
Those opinions help me to be sure(?) about the flaws and be willing to make some correction on these images.
I'm going to try some blurring on the outlines of the figures(?) with High-Pass...and show you when finished.

edited : Here's what I came out with.(blurring the outlines a little, some soft focus effect and bride's lower mouth part, groom's tie correction...)
