Not my wedding shoot, a wedding shoot I ran across at the Xi'an city wall. Mom (on the left) saw me taking pictures, and motioned for me to get closer. Unfortunately, they were wrapping up as I was walking over.


The usual corrections in Lightroom, then...

* Lots of work with the lens correction filter. Those bricks and that lens? Yikes! Still not great...
* Crop
* Hue/Sat layer to reduce the saturation of mom's tan jacket and pink scarf, and the brown trash can.
* Curves layer, soft light mode, 30% opacity
* resize, sharpen

A wonderful assortment of animation and activity. I like how everything is drawn in red and black.

I'd be interest to see what the final product was of the other photographer. :)

There is something about this that i really like, maybe the color contrast, or maybe the harmony in all the movement, doesn't matter i like it.

This is cool. It gives the viewers some ideas.

The colors are truly spectacular. But I feel that there is too much extraneous activity, and that the leftmost person (and a bit of the foreground) could easily have been cropped down to focus more on the interesting parts.
