I dunno, i dont think i'd like this as much if it was more dreamy... I think it looks perfect as is. It did it for me - im a fan of this pic :)...

Plus, i think less PS is better.

If anything i reccon just make the middle )darker part of this pic) part of this pic more 'realisitic' looking rather then blacked out... (i personally think this would work a treat) ... the rest is very believable :)

i think i know what you mean, the big 'sea of black' takes up a lot of the shot and isn't really that impressive either !!!

Hey, when r we going to see some more shots from you anyway ???

Great composition and colors in the dress. I like the backlighting, but it seems a bit overexposed. Perhaps some burning is in order.

Thanks Jezza, since Amber paid for all the free booze I drank at the reception, I thought I'd better get a nice shot of her ;)

Fantastic Caleb, I saw this when Mel was browsing through her account, and I was suprised it was your photo, as it isn't really the style of photograph I have grown used to seeing you release. The contrast balance is excellent and the glow from the blinds gives the image a really dreamy feel to it. Your choice selective saturation has really paid off and it's clearly working as well as selective saturation can ever be expected to. I love the darkness in the lower half of the image, and it has a generally lonely feel to it, as if your sister is await the arrival of someone.
Overall a really, really good photo mate, certainly a step up. The only thing I can fault here is a very slight lack of sharpening in the upper-half of the image, too much would kill the mood but a hint of clarity might be nice, I don't know if you want it ever-so slightly blurred to add to the mood though.
:thumbsup:

Thanks Harry,
I know what you mean about being a completely different style for me.
I actually had a lot of fun doing the portrait shots, now I just wanna try to find some willing models and do some more, lmao.
Could I interest you and/or Mel into doing some modelling for me ????

Thanks Mel,
Amber just does her own thing and doesn't really pay much attention to tradition, hence she didn't bother with the 'white wedding dress' and opted for the dashing red number instead :)

My sister doesn't like to fit into other peoples "ideals", and I guess that included wedding dress colours...
I've actually bought up the colour a bit for the photo, it was more of a deep maroon/blood red dress, it was very stunning.

Thank you Katrina,
although not sure why a wedding day would need a "dreamy sigh" !!!
On the other hand vampires, corsets, bellydancers, chocolates & music are all definately 'dreamy sigh' material for me ;)

Great photograph. Love the colours, the light and the composition. And the 'feel' of it, but I don't have the right words to describe that unfortunately. Nice one :D
