Challenge: Free Study 2012-05 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-550D Rebel T2i
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

MY first attempt at off-camera flash photography on my willing wife the day after our wedding.

Typical strobist setup: one flash with shoot-thru umbrella.

- Processed in LR3 with Nik SEP2.

Really don't expect this to do well at all (maybe a 5.6?), not well executed enough to draw good votes. Sharpness is off in the face, her eyes are closing, hotspots etc.

Know it won't score well, but hoping to get some comments or helpful suggestions.

nice portrait, like the tension created by the angled head and body, like the motion shown by the hair.

How beautiful! I love all of this! Such a lovely woman... and the pose tells us about her personality... I love it all.

A bit too much contrast i think which is making the face blow out a bit.
