The eyes help people shots come alive and help with expressions and moods. There could be some improvements with that issue.
I would agree with Ben. I like #2 best. The setting is nice. The tree branch helps frame the image. The young lady has a pleasant smile but again neither seem to be able to keep their eyes open.
I miss the eye contact a lot. It's kind of a requisite to me, save for very special exceptions.
Image #1 could use a tighter crop. The composition has really strong diagonals leading me out of the frame to the right (it's actually a triangle which ends outside of the frame, on the right side). Besides helping create the "offending" diagonals, the two white posts really distract, especially the one where the text is readable.
The composition on image #2 is very pleasant. The harsh lighting didn't affect this image too much, but since their faces are in shadow, the girl's "glowing" sleeves end up drawing the eyes instead of their faces (if their eyes were open this effect wouldn't be so strong I guess).
Image #3 has "floating heads" in the lower part of the frame, and the priest is in a bad position partially hidden behind the couple. You have some overexposed highlights on the head of the priest, and also on the back of the girls, due to the harsh lighting.
On a more general sense, lighting is too harsh on all of them - just look at all the contrasty shadows and you can tell that. Shooting closer to sunset or sunrise would have made a lot of difference. Also, if you have the possibility of decreasing your depth of field, you would really benefit from a more blurred background on these shots. The man should be wearing long pants on the first 2 images, bare skin really attracts our eyes and thus his legs become a strong distraction.
By the way, given the harsh lighting, you did an awesome job with exposure.
Last but not least, don't pay too much attention to what I say here - it's pretty easy to criticize, much harder to actually try and do better. "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena" said a wise man once (mr. Roosevelt I believe)
Actually, I just googled that phrase and the text is so relevant to a critique forum that I'll hijack your thread just a little bit to post it - here it is, an excerpt from a speech by mr. Theodore Roosevelt:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
I actually feel really inspired by these words.
Sorry to hijack your thread
