I had a photo shoot today with the "Golden Family"..... I used to be freaky about OE.... I never would allow it to be in my shots..until I began to see how it could work in a shot. I love this....the couple has been married 30 years, with three GREAT kids. We had a photo shoot at Mercer Arboretum today. Seems I have plenty of work these days....really having fun with it!

Nothing like the royal kiss from yesterday but this is a wonderful moment for the couple considering they've been married 30 years. That's a novelty when you think about the lenght of average marriage today. I like your pov, good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Fantastic Linda! Yes, OE does have its place in photography. This is great, your subjects are properly exposed, while the OE shows the light of their love. Well done!

Warm regards,

Nice shot Linda. The OE really works here in contrast to your subjects. Great color and composition. Sweet touching pose. Well done! TFS, Lori

Hi Linda,
I like your POV in this shot. The composition looks great and the OE bg lets this happy couple of 30 years stand out. I agree that a little OE can work in the right situations. A very nice PDA capture Linda.

Hello Linda,

I know exactly what you mean about adapting your views, I suppose it's with experience. You are right, the oe serves a useful purpose in this instance, allowing the couple to have a strongly contrasting ... highlighting b/g.
I love the way you have used their arms, as guides towards the kiss.
Glad you are having so much enjoyable work.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
