New Bride

Uploaded: November 18, 2007


My New niece-in-Law. Taken last night at her wedding reception. This was just before she left the dressing room. I didn't care for the color one so I made it black and white and just loved how it turned out. I hope you all like it too!

Good Morning Frank and Tammy!
Thanks for the wonderful comments!
It was a evening ceremony and the church that it was held in has a bunch of flourecent lighting. Yuck to take Pictures in when you don't have all the fun professional gadgets. I wouldn't know how to use those gadgets anyhow...LOL but the orignal had an orangy cast to it. this was the room where she was getting dressed. And the origninal in the color based one also looked grainy to me. So I played with it and loved the look of the B&W. #5096385
