    Again very nice Rob but will give a little bit of advice here if you do another. :). You said about the nightmare of everyone having phones etc and of course this shows in the cake shot with the lady in bg. I always take the b and g straight into the wedding breakfast room after the personals, this way they can see the room set up before anyone else and I can get an empty room shot plus I then do a dummy cake shot with no interruptions, this leaves me free later to photograph the photography circus when they do the real cake cut, so I'm then taking pics of people taking pics of them. Well done on the in car shots - never an easy shot!

    The cake was taken to the pub for the evening do after the reception and I never had chance to isolate them Jen. I've already shopped one person out from behind the brides back but the lady was too big a task.
    @Jenbenjen but thanks for the tips :)

    I agree with Edward about the cat shot.
    I have always found that if you are getting paid for shooting you have more control but family stuff makes them less controllable.
    You did well. My only crit is the angle of the cake shot o think could have been at a lower angle but that is nothing really in the scale of things.

    I have always had a problem with the cell phone cameras and Uncle Bobs at any family wedding. They tend not to take you as seriously as when you are a paid 'tog.

    However, in my position as an on site portrait 'tog I learned to keep the camera in burst mode for any particular pose. I shoot a minimum of 5 and as many as 10 in each one. I also wave a free hand and whistle or make funny faces in an attempt to get everyone's attention toward my lens and not Auntie So-and-so's who is always striving for their attention. In the first and last here you were competing for eye contact with someone or something else.

    Now, to the good news................... Ya done darned good here otherwise. I think they will be happy. :thumbsup:

    Hi Rob. Looks like a challenging but rewarding day. For me the car shots could do with a little exposure lift for your son as he's in the shadows. The in car shot the child is a bit out of the DOF but I can see you're struggling for light there so stopping down would be tricky. I can imagine she was probably constantly moving too. The expressions on their faces are great though relief and happiness together.

    The lady on her own needs a little exposure lift for me and her expression looks miles away, I can see it's a grab shot but maybe shooting landscape with a slightly wider angle to the side to get something of a suggestion of the scene in in the direction of her gaze could make something a bit more of it.

    The couple shot is great, great framing, natural looking exposure and engaging expressions to the camera.

    Cake shot has a great expression from the bride, the edit on the background above was a great job ,but a lot of work!! I can see finding a good angle in those circumstances would be difficult, I would have tried to get more face on so that the cake and bride/groom mostly behind would fill the frame but perhaps you can't actually get in a position like this.

    Thanks for the advice Carmen, great tips there @Carmen
    And @rebel06 , I`m so sorry Paul and Carmen, for the tardiness of this reply, I didn`t actually see the last two posts from you and Carmen, you did a superb edit here and you must feel aggrieved that I hadn`t responded. So again, apologies, great job.

    @Shaunmbs ...Thanks ... It's just a matter of cloning ..... If you give it time it works out quite well ..... but you need enough uncluttered bg to clone from.

    Well I think it’s perfect, hardly noticeable in my opinion. I can see some parts where cloning has occurred but I think if you hadn’t seen the original it would not Ben noticeable at all. Certainly way out of my skill set so a big well done from me.

    Very nice, on the cake picture there is not much you could do about the people, except maybe using a faster lens like a l.8 wide open to isolate the couple. The couple would have had great focus but the people in the back would be out of focus and not drawing your eye as much. That being said the photos are very good!
