Lucky with the weather and the venue.

Im not sure if I prefer it colour or B&W.

The colours are too beautiful to lose. Lovely shot.

Like them both. Can't help agree that the colour has such nicely saturated colours it would be a shame not to show them.

Good to see a photograph from you Martin and a lovely shot too.

Can't believe (assuming I'm seeing things correctly) the groom's carrying a posie though! :shocked:What's the world coming to these days?! :)

Re the original question, I've looked at this a few times today and that mono is growing on me. Initially I was for the colour - now not so sure.

I intentionally shut down the f stop to keep more in the DOF. I would usually shoot at around 5.6 on weddings.

settings were -

F16
1/200th
ISO 200

Always shoot RAW so I can pull back highlights and open up shadows.

Is that the 11th commandment Ed? "Bloke's shall not carry flowers unlesseth on the way home from the florest after doing something thoughtless and being foundeth out."

Colour for me too. The B&W is also pretty cool but the wedding dress seems to get a bit lost in the shades a bit. This is only my ideato highlight the couple a bit so take it with a grain of salt. I use Photoshop CS6 and automatically open JPG files with Camera Raw to tweak things a bit before bringing it into PS. These are the adjustments I made and then just converted to B&W in PS. It gives it a slight grungy look but really highlights the bride and groom. This may not be for everybody :)

Converted to B&W (Shift + Ctrl + U).
