I love this. The DOF; the brightness and clarity of the ring. May I ask if you used a prime lens and at what aperture.
Did you shoot this wedding?
Thanks, Debbie #903187

Hi Deb! Thanks for the kind words - I did use my 50mm prime lens, ISO 200, f/2.0, 1/30 exposure, hand held with natural light from nearby window. Minimal levels adjustment, and I did crop it to 5" x 5" image size.

This is actually my own wedding invitation - I wanted to get some "typical" photographs of my own before they got sent out :) I'll be leaving the photography up to a professional on the actual day! #5803265

Yes, congratulations! Perfect shot. You did a great job. Are you going to do your shoes with the same lens? Very popular. I saw the most beautiful shot of the bride's strappy shoes hanging from a beautiful door knob. #5804652
