    Thanks guys! I was always apprenhensive about using the 40D when I had the 1D. They seem to lack the same "pop" as opposed to when using the 1D. However, the colors and dynamic range on the 40D are nicer as well as the images are less noisy. The cross-point focusing allowed me to not have to focus and recompose as much.

    I really hope the new 5D is similar in AF performance when I get it.

    Brilliant! The happy couple should treasure these.

    #1 and #5 are my favourites.

    Personally, I would have cropped really tight on #5. The only thing that matters are the happy faces. I hope it lasts.

    te1221,

    Pure genius!!! Even purer feeling!! Congratulations on absolutely nailing the love here....I love every single shot!! 2,3 and 5 are composition knockouts......love the ring on the maple leaf, so album worthy...and I fell in love with no.4....for the sheer simplicity and how beautifully it communicates the communication between the 2...

    What a lovely couple!! My best wishes to them.

    Great start and wish you all the best for more.



    Best regards

    These are all shot from RAW with some basic editing. Any recommendations for PP?

    EDIT: I added a selective color version of the ring shot. Which do you all prefer? 3 or 8?

    these look really great. the thing about engagement shoots is it's more about their interaction and expressions than making beautiful photos. although you did both here.

    personally i'm not a fan of selective color, but it seems like brides really love it, so i have no opinion when it comes to that. personally, my editing, i like to drop saturation just a bit to make room for extra contrast...keeps the skin tones natural. but these look pretty contrasty, so i wouldn't worry too much about that. also, i like to add a subtle vignette to a lot of my pics. but to each his own.

    Thanks adam.

    Do you do this in photoshop under filters>> lens correction?

    no i pretty much do everything in lightroom. but yea, if you wanna do it in photoshop that's where it is. or you can make your own with layers and masks....or with selecting with a feather.

    I just started using LR 2 and it really is sweet for these types of adjustments. The local adjusment brush and ND grad will take the place of layers in many cases.
