Really nice, Javier! I bet she loves these!

Love her smile and the whole look of No. 3. I might have liked it even better if she was looking at the camera, but it's awesome as it is.

No. 2 is just killer. Since her face is competing with that white dress, I'd probably lighten her face and arms with the Dodge tool.

Great job!

Beautiful images.

Clone out the graffiti on the posts in number 2.

I think a slightly larger aperture on number 4 would have been a bit better (but that's just my taste).

Lighting on face in 2 is a bit wonky, but the lighting on all the rest is great. Nice location, and good compositions.

TFS !

2 is very, very fine. The gazebo graffiti is interesting and adds another, wanted or not wanted, element to the image. What about bringing a bit more of the dress's pink and blue out in the bodice and in the skirt trim?

I'll bet the family is really pleased with your work.

Congratulations,

John Caldwell

Thanks everyone! What a journey it has been to get to this point- I have so much farther to go.

I go back and forth with #2 about fixing the blemishes or not. Id have to somehow clone the missing banisters and flooring.

Great idea to push the blues and pinks in the dress.

I really regret not having her hold the bouquet more often especially #2.

Javier, I'd be proud to have these in my portfolio. She's a beauty now, can't wait to see your wedding photos of her.

Graffiti: I go back and forth on removal. It *was* there at the shoot. My personal tastes dictate leaving more "artful" graffiti. This graffiti looks like a child's.

The missing balusters: you might be able to select the left baluster, copy onto two new layers, then reposition.

To further nit-pick, the left column behind her leans to the left. Photoshop's lens correction or actual, selective distortion may tame that.

I agree about boosting colors in her gown, an/or adding contrast.

Great shots. The 2nd and 3rd are my favorites. Some minor comments: #1 the face is too dark compared the whole photo. #4 Try tighter crops to see if it helps take out some of the distracting background.

Nice series. Fine job capturing a lovely girl. Sure she likes them. Number 4 is a little busy for me, pulls my eye from the subject.

I agree with the others; these are nicely done. But watch your backgrounds…you have limbs growing out of her head in the first photo and a gutter downspout behind her in the third. The roofline in the second and the tree limbs in the fourth don't bother me as much, because you can see where they come from on both sides of her.

Thanks Steve I am bad at that- so easy to do. Its like my brain wants to line those things up without me realizing it.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!
