Excellent work. Fabulous colors and placement of the Dove within the image. Brings to mind immediately the scene in the Bible of Jesus' baptism by John and the dove descending along with the voice from heaven.

Gorgeous composition, Steven! And welcome to the BetterPhoto community!

In the April Bride image I'm pretty sure I used Craig's Actions Shadow Soft with a reduced opacity and masked the bride so she would be sharp in the image. Thanks for stopping to comment.
