Shooting a wedding with a friend of mine up in Delaware, about an hour from Philly. This was the wedding band, named The Rhythm Doctors, a group formed back in the 50's. The guy up front toward the right is the group's last original member. At 90 years young, he could still play!

Composition was pretty much what you see, used an SB-600 bounced off the ceiling of the tent. Post processing was a bit of experimenting with a handful of Kubota presets, trying to get an older, antiquey feel without over-doing it. Border is also Kubota, one of the sloppy borders.

Very nice contrast and clarity! The lights in the front are a bit distracting, but overall it is a nice image!

A little soft in the background, slightly distracted by the black area and bright light towards the bottom of the photo. Like it, though.

One of the few shots where I feel a border adds to it! I would have liked if the man in the front was more in focus.

nice use of the sepia. the light from that bulb near the bottom kind of offsets the rest of the photo, though
