I am the first to welcome you to OPF.

I see you are located in Romania and are a Wedding Photographer. That’s a lot of joy you are recording!

You picture is immediately attractive with this lovely young backlit subject at ease in her simple pose.

I do like the colors and the contrast of the colored out of focus b.g.

There are questions:

1. The filter effect of the very dark “vignetting” of the corners seems so harsh, for an otherwise gentle image.

In the old days we’d move a card disk on a wand over the edges to decrease exposure of the print under the light of the enlarged in the darkroom. But it was almost imperceptible. We tried to make it psychologically effective in sending the eyes back to the subject, but not at all obvious as an alteration of the image!

2. It must be that you also took full length portraits. These we’d love to see too, if you can share!

I am enjoying them both and looking forward to more. I might make the second a landscape by cropping above her head.
