    Hi Paul,

    I apologise for the amount of photo's but look forward to any CC that can be given as its the first time I have done a wedding or anything like the last few images.
    It helps to be a bit more selective and number the shots (I have done this) - otherwise just think how we'd have to describe comments on any of the last four, so you'd know which we meant

    Hi again Paul,

    1 - 3 are fine as Reception pictures

    #2 is great but I'd clone out the sharp edged bit in the bokeh top left of centre.

    #3 I'd crop so there's also half a lamp on left too and clone out the green blob top right

    4 - 6 are not obviously wedding shots (in any way) for those that haven't been there, but then

    the following morning i was also asked to take some pics of the family and kids at the beach.
    7 - 10 ok as experiments, for me #9 works best, followed by #7, the other too have the cannon barrel, which might mean something to the participants, but not to us - it just complicates things.

    Hope that helps,

    In #3 I find the lighting a bit bright and would suggest bringing them down to a point they are not the first thing you see. #6 crop it tighter to eliminate some of the non-contributing sky and beach. As an old married guy I think the inclusion of the cannon is appro.

    Re: family wedding

    Thanks guys. I'll look at cropping a couple of the pics accordingly. The cannon does mean something as the wedding was held at polhawn fort and is a garden piece do it will stay in most the pics.
    Thanks for taking the time to look and comment

    Ah now, if I'd known that, I would'na suggested removing it

    Brings us back to it being worth your while to tell us a bit more about the pictures
