I took this photo at my last wedding. Any comments are welcome.

The posing is very effective.

But IMHO, it would've been better to have placed her in front of a dark background; w/ her light-colored hair especially, she doesn't really stand out in front of a bright background.

What did this look like in colour? I ask because it may have had more separation between her and the bg. Nice work at the subtle oof framing, gorgeous shot.

Not a nitpick but I hate the way some lenses (esp nikon 70-200) gets weird bokeh from oof foreground subjects.

Over all I like the shot. A couple of things I might think about are:

1. bringing her right arm forward just enough to see it
2. giving a little more of a head tilt
3. the sepia conversion isn't working for me, I'd like to see a b/w of this shot.

Nice shot, she will like it for sure.

Looks nice. I'd prefer to see some open eyes and more space on the left though. Just my 2 cents.

It's pretty and it works but to my eyes at least the limbs/top foreground are distracting. Nice shot!

Color's better... take the purple out of the dress. (warm WB brush)

I am a huge fan of B&W but in certain cases, when the back drop or the focal element hold so much wonderful colour (especially with good lighting), its always better to stick with colour than opting to B&W!

The only real downside to the color version is that I can realize we aren't actually out in nature anywhere (which is the feeling the B+W version gives). The green and blue in the background look like a sign and shutters/awnings. In the B+W they just blend in.

That said, I still think the color version works better.

I like your image a lot, I think the B&W is probably the better version of it, the color version could be improved with some work.

It looks like a split vote between color and B&W image. Maybe it is best to do selective coloring! LMAO

Color version after you fix the dress' color cast issues.
