Re: Some critique please

Overall, you did pretty good (weddings are tough to shoot).

C&C wise, I'll throw a few ideas your way pertaining to the "couples" shots.

1- The poses they're in are nice (i.e.: DSC_1788 and DSC_1791) but the couple is right in the centre in the frame. It's best to try and avoid centering the subject. The photo would be much better if it was composed differently. (i.e.: Placing the couple more to the right of the frame in this case)

2- Try using a wider aperture on your lens. This will provide more separation between the subjects and the background ("blurring" the background making it less distracting) and focus the attention on the couple itself.

Hope this helps a bit.

gng11, I am not a pro, so this is all just what an average guy see's.
In several pics I would clone out the sign, it's distracting. I would straighten photo 1791like you did with 1787 and 87-1. 1791 is an awsome shot and I absolutly love what you did with the color in these.

Thanks to all for their feedback. Here is a new set of pictures, please feel free to critique. (Most of the pictures are the same, with slightly different variations)
