My 1st wedding photo (18)

Hello everyone,

Few months ago I posted a thread on the forums to ask you for some piece of advise as my 1st wedding job was coming... well that was last night!!! and gosh that was hard work... ;)
I have posted another thread actually to ask for more help as most of my photos have some noise.. I have to say that the conditions were not ideal:
- worth storm of the century in north island of NZ
- hence no electricity at the hair dresser
- hence very poor light at the newly weds home
-> hence a lot of noise on my pictures

At the venue the light was really dim and romantic.. not ideal for a beginners like me! specially after dropping my external flash and blowing the bulb of it (that was before the bride came in!!) so I got even more stressed and yeah ... some of my pictures need a miracle..

This one was taken at the newly wed's place, I like the light on their face, but the BG was still very noisy, so i used a lens blur filter to smooth it...

Its not a perfect shot and I know it, I am actually posting it for you could advise me what I could do to make it better.. Please.. ;)

many thanks.

This is just a suggestion of what I may have done with this image to bring out the expression of the bride. Using layers, desaturation and gausian blur. I have seen your own ppwork and it is very good so be creative and have with it.

I rotated to the right a few degrees.
Cloned out the white under the man's chin, and the wall behind the bride.
Used levels to enhance the midtones, darkened the highlights.
A little noise reduction, and unsharp mask.
Resized and framed.
I'm sure, that with a little work you will achieve a nice set of images for the bride and groom.
Cheers,
Pete.

Boost of contrast (S-curve) and saturation, addition of vignette, duplicate bg layer, add 8 pix. Gaussian blur, opacity of layer set to 40% to give diffusion effect, unsharp mask on underlying layer
