another shot showing the mini mayhem that goes on in the bride's preparation room

but the star of the shot is the priceless expression on the bride's face


i may have been careless with the blacks in some parts of the shot

This is another lovely photo! You are truly gifted (I recently attended a wedding and their photographer was not so clever, just stuck to the basic shots) Your shots are treasures.
DrAW!: thanks for the kind words SuRi grin
Nice catch, I saw her brother inlaw on the bus yesterday, on our way to work.
DrAW!: wow!
world's gettin smaller by the day grin

She like ...I'm getting ready, limme jo!
DrAW!: lol!
Cool image, if maybe the tiniest bit over processed? She will be pleased.
DrAW!: thanks chris
you're right about the processing (though it was deliberate)
you're also right about her being pleased
love the expression too but the composition does not tell me much about the mayhem in the prep room. Shooting at 28mm tells me you've cropped a lot of the mayhem away from the shot smile
DrAW!: thanks dotun
though by 'mayhem' i was just referring to the many distractions in the pic grin
any luck on the white balance this time?

Doc, her face tells a story! The rest of the room (other than the woman behind her) is a bit of a distraction as they seem to be a little too out of context (too cropped, maybe?). I like the processing..it gives almost a surreal quality that matches her expression.
DrAW!: thanks kathryn
the story i hoped to convey was that the bride's changing room can be such a busy place, but that the bride manages to still glow in the midst of chaos smile
I love that expression on her face, doc.
DrAW!: thanks chad
that's the star of today's pic grin

She probably couldn't repeat that expression if she tried, DrAW, so I think you got yourself a winner! grin
DrAW!: lol

Meanwhile back at the wedding! You are right it's a great expression Doc.

This is a great image. I love the mobile phones. It seem you can't go anywhere without one.
