    some friends of mine got married and the wedding photographer let me take a few shots.
    photography in a dark aquarium is really tough. the only light in this tunnel was a blue spotlight so I bounced a flash backwards so as not to get a big flash spot reflected in the glass.

    Looks like you got the white balance back pretty well. Looks as though she's laughing too hard to be kissing.

    I think she wasn't expecting him to lean her back like that.
    i would have loved a little more on the sides for this pic, especially that left side, but just outside of the frame are concrete pylons...

    Interesting place to get married! I think I'd try a closer crop with this, perhaps a landscape with the negative space to the left and then clone out the strip. I'm just not a fan of the concrete at the bottom!

    I think you did well there really. I think you could boost the contrast a little, but don't let that affect the dress and parts already look on the edge of blowing.

    Ah, you could be right about the contrast. I may have to drop it back in Lightroom and check it out.

    That's a bit different.

    As Mike says, that's different! :)

    Great idea to bounce the flash well away.

    Yea, it did seem to work out pretty good.
    There just wasn't enough light otherwise.

    I hope it's different in a good way.

    It really doesn’t flatter couples having them kiss with pouty lips like this, much better to have them ‘almost kiss’, looks a lot more romantic and less camera aware.

    Bit overlit too, other than that.... perfect!

    That's a good tip for other beginners. Unfortunately, the OP may never see this since he hasn't been back on the forum in 2 1/2 years now.
