Taken at a wedding of two of my friends this past weekend. They had a hired photographer onsite, but asked if I would be interested in taken pure candids. Since I like candids so much I was more than happy (plus no pressure to perform is always nice).

This one is a little tough for basic editing. I wanted to do some localized contrast adjustments. Oh well. Post Done in Capture NX.

A few blown highlights and a slightly dark cast won't win me many votes I think. 5.3 is my guess. Go Team Spleen.

What a great capture of a fun moment! Has a candid feel. Certainly fits the username well. This would be stronger in advanced editing, of course, if you could light the faces more. But it's still a fabulous capture and I sure your friends will enjoy it for years to come.

I disagree with the one commenter that said this looked staged. I think this is a very good shot and I am totally shocked by the score. The look on their faces are fantastic. Good job Jayson.

I had a feeling this was you - recognized the gal from desat. ;) This is a fun, free-spirited capture and perfect for the username. Great job!

Nice capture but a big no no cropping off the feet.

Interesting composition, but appears a little too staged / forced, in my opinion.

Good one, not the typical picture here, more of a snapshot, but I like it
