    i think the award for capturing the most boring expression from a very young lovely girl....on a very happy occasion like marriage should go to mr.antonio the young girl has the expression of "come on now...take your pic and leave, pl" ....... happy occasions demand happy lively pics.

    She was behaving very well. We had been seated for some hours, eating and talking.
    May be, as you say, this is not the best picture for a happy occasion. No it is not.
    I don't have many others as I didn't want to bother the professional working around.

    But do you like the bounced flash ?
    My wife says I am flash maniac
    Got two of them. 430 and 580 !

    I'm a huge fan of candid photos such as these. In a perfect world every wedding shot might consist of nothing but huge happy grins. If it weren't for the title, though, I wouldn't have known the shot was taken at a wedding. The young lady appears relaxed, perhaps a bit tired. Maybe somewhat disinterested in the remainder of the event, however her attempt at a smile shows she is a cooperative sort and her maturity is revealed in this picture.

    Thank you for commenting.
    Here I post another photo shot, at night. I was using again the ST-E2 and I was holding the 580 on my left hand. I had however another difficulty and the photo is not that good: the mirror.
    I was using ETTL and this way the camera/flash reads the light coming from the mirror.
    But I got this happy shot abit too yellow may be.
    I always shoot raw and I must learn to work better with it.

    well well! after seeing this lovely warm pic of the couple, cutting the cake is very good....except for the distracting background maybe a tighter composition of the couple would have created a warmer pic

    Two comments: the slight smirk on the young girl is awesome, and the cake looks delicious!

    That mirror is in effect very distracting. And I have darkened it a bit.
    (I shoot raw most of the time)
