Nice set. 10 would be better IMHO if you went lower to not cut off the top of the bridge and give it more prominence in the frame. As it is I think there are too many pieces pulling attention in different directions (the water, the bridge cut off and them in the corner of the frame).

Ok so now we are at 4 of your sets....

I would think about hanging #2 on the wall even though I am not that couple. Wow.

One thought. The horizon seems a little off to me in #9. I think I want it either a little more crooked, or more straight, but this is just in between the two for me. <--- Take with a grain of salt, because there are some really great shooters here who seem to like this sort of shot a lot.

These are really nice. 2 is beautiful.
The only thing that bothers me is so many of them repeat the composition in the bottom right hand corner. Perhaps switch it up a little more next time. Upper left, dead center, etc...

Solid set and I see your vision. In post fixing flyaways like in #4 is pretty easy and #10 I find her face is too much in shadow. Bringing her head to the left would have added more light.

@steve:
thanks--I agree. A lot going on there.

@andrew:
#2 is definitely my favorite. I knew it was going to turn out well when I saw all that fog in the background with the trees... I kinda wish I put the couple in the center.

@candice:
totally agree... I have other shots that aren't focused on the bottom right, but my favorite shots that had everything working (imo) for it happened to be that way. d'oh.

really nice set!

as for C&C, I agree with Candice where 1-10 are all composed right (far right); which i tend to do often also. Also, there are very few sights of their faces. These could be just due to the images you shared though & not true to the set you delivered.

I like your use of negative space to draw the viewer in. Great job!

Great set, you sure are on the right side but that doesn't bother me here.
Good job.

Thanks everyone--as for favoring the right, it's definitely something i noticed after i picked out my favorites...but what are ya gonna do?? Next time I'm going to try to be more conscious of it. I usually just go with what I'm feeling for a composition. That day I guess I was feeling all right.

Nice set. #2 rocks!

I'm not crazy about #4. I do like her expression..but I wish he was facing the other way. His stance is a little feminine and the fist he's making takes away from the mood.

Other than that they look good to me!

One other thing I just noticed...there isn't a clear shot of his face - I have no idea what he looks like. I like the candid feel to these...but you may want to consider including a couple of more traditional shots where both are looking at the camera.

I shot a set very similar to this for an Asian couple a few years ago...and they asked for a reshoot because of this very reason - there were almost no shots of them looking directly at the camera and smiling.
