Very nice shot of a happy moment. If you could go back in and open up (lighten) the face just a bit so that we could see more of that gorgeous smile and perhaps crop bit on the left or right, to get her out of the middle, I think that you've got a great shot!

Welcome aboard!

Oops, one more thing. If you could blur the background to get rid of the barbed, or razor, wire, that would help. Brides and razor wire do not go together! smile

debola: I have the slightest idea how to do any of that. Plan to play around with P.S in the near future.

Thanks for the comments

Lovely expression! I think you should have shot this in portrait orientation to leave out the blank space on the sides. I agree with Paul on the brightness and the razor wire too, maybe a wider aperture would have helped the latter.

Welcome to Shutterchance!
debola: thanx!

another Naija??? geez we are taking over sha. Debo I welcome you with open arms.
U've got a nice capture here. I know its first shot on shutterchance but I have decided to be frank about feedback. Maybe u could have brightened up the shot a bit and slightly blur the background. This will bring out the lovely looking bride in the shot.
debola: Thanks for the feedback Ade- The guy that got me into

I agree with some of the others.....a better DOF would help this one, but I know you wern't shooting for that at the time.

Keep shooting and posting.
debola: will get there someday...thanks
