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.

Oh wow, Steven. This is totally fantastic. The beautiful, vivid colors and dove almost flying out of the frame really grabbed my attention. This one should be a winner, it is in my book...
