I'll never understand how you folks use harsh light so successfully. Every time I'm out shooting and I see high, overhead sun I just run away in fear.
Great set. Clean, consistent, nothing standing out (good or bad).
Number 4 vs 7 is interesting. First, they're the same photo. I think you only need one of them. 4 is tremendously weaker - there's too much dead space to the right, she looks oddly distorted. In my mind, it's not a successful use of an ultra wide. 7 is the exact same composition, yet is SO much better, really a strong photo. Perhaps someone more technically minded like Chuck could give you a better explanation as to why, but the photo seems so much more balanced. I think it has to do with the direction of the bride's gaze, the deeper shadows on the right, and the smaller amount of distortion on the bride's face.
23-25 are quite repetitive. On a blog, I think you only need one of the three.
18 is great. Would've preferred just a bit more of the building - tilt the camera just a bit farther up.
40 gets bonus points for good natural framing, although the light on the couple is a bit funky/spotty.
Overall, I think this would be a much stronger set if you trimmed some of the fat. Had you posted maybe 25-30 of the best of these, it would clean up much nicer.
