Wonderful series! Would've loved to have seen 12 in color! Couldn't quite get 17, didn't work for me. Love 6, 11, 14 18 and 20... Really like everything else. Nice job!!!

5,8,10,12,14 are keepers. Nothing wrong with the entire set though, nice work!

Always enjoy your work - but this is the best I remember seeing from you. Many too many to list that I like as my 'faves' so suffice it to say this is a great set. I bet she and her family are totally pleased.

Fantastic! Curious, what lens did you use for 12-14?

17 is a nice idea but to me it seems like too much is going on in the picture

I rarely comment on others pictures, but OMG!!!

6 - I love the movement portrayed in this picture, you appear to have gotten both her and the horse in focus. Her hair and posture make it stunning.

12 - Gorgeous B/W. Nice and simple. Bokeh looks good.

14 - Beautiful girl. Again bokeh looks fantastic here. Great catchlights.

18 - This is an amazing shot. Her dress, the way it lays on the horse, her being barefoot, the way she has her hair on her left shoulder, leaving the right shoulder bare, all winners!!. Her being beautiful is, of course, just gravy. Excellent B/W. The harsh light on the left of her face, I like. Maybe remove whatever that is next to the horse's front left leg. Not sure what that is. Her big toe??

Loved the entire set, except wasn't crazy about 17. I like the idea, but IMO, doesn't work there. Just my .02.

based on 11, you guys had good connection. That is key!

Thanks everyone so far for your feedback. I guess I have the right to lay an egg once in a while, consensus is #17 is a bit too "experimental". It was only the 6th roll of 120 film I'd put through the Holga (12 frames each), so I'm still getting used to it

Thanks! I appreciate the kind words. They definitely are pleased!

My sweet, sweet baby... the 200mm f/2.0L IS.

It's died down a bit, but in the FM wedding forum, I'm "known" for having/using this beast of a lens.

Thanks for the detailed feedback Fabian, I appreciate it. It's her left foot in #18 that I zapped from a couple other frames, but missed in this one.. if they order prints I'll definitely clone it out. I appreciate that because I thought I fixed it-- but obviously forgot

#6 took a few takes, but all that sports shooting practice I do paid off here.

Great Set Andrew! Everyone above me have made enough points, the only one that didn't sit well with me was 17. Otherwise I loved scrolling thru.

Nice set, love 5, 6 and 15!
Exposure on her face seems a touch hot on the first two.

Really nice as usual. 2 and 19 are killer. 9, 10, and 14 very good as well. 15 and 16 are nice except I find the big yellow flower in the foreground to be distracting.

Thank you again everyone for the kind words and feedback. I'm always geeked when they willingly change their FB profile pics to my photos. Speaks volumes and is free advertising

I concede they are a bit "contrasty". In an effort to bump the contrast, her face does technically get a bit overexposed.

Yes, worth it.

wow, as others have said, stellar set. Some sweet light in a lot of these.

The only observation from me is in #12 her legs are a completely different shade to her arms/face. Is that just down to the angle of the light?
