I photographed a wedding today & this bride was sooo beautiful with a GORGEOUS smile. Used Michael's B&W action in PS7. 1/100sec, F6.3, manual mode, 100mm focal length. Nothing done to image except change b&w.

Thanks everyone! I just LOVED this wedding. It was fun, BUT VERY frigid:)

Nadia...No this wasn't my new lense. It was with my 28-100mm lense. I LOVED the clarity of this image as well cause it was STRAIGHT from the camera. I was impressed!!!:) Everything is just so fast paced with a wedding...ESPECIALLY when you're outside & FREEZING that everything was rushed & I didn't want to take the time to switch lenses:) I did use it at the reception:)
