On some of my recent trips back to the UK I've had a couple of things to do, but have spent quite a lot of my time twiddling my thumbs or just wandering about taking photographs. This trip, however, is quite a lot busier: I got back on Wednesday, went clothes shopping on Thursday (which was hellish), photographed a wedding with Sheila Morris yesterday, and spent today delivering the first of two days 1-2-1 training. I've got Monday off, but have three morning training sessions next week, after which I fly back to BG with my good mate Craig.

As I'm sure you will have already worked out, this is the first of a number shots that I'll be posting from the wedding: the youngest of three flowergirls. She was definitely a cutey :)

I also have a couple more portraits that I'll be posting, and at least four shots from this morning's training session. I'll post the first of those on Monday.

This is great, I love the dress and her expression. Her right hand looks a bit strange :S
In a different topic, I notice this photo didn´t have the "show the original" option (at least in Chrome I can´t see it). If this ok?

Thanks Cesar. As for the 'show original', I just forgot to code it in - it's there now.

This is a delight David! Seems like the processing is subtle, but the resulting richness of color and contrast is great. She is the Queen of cute!

I've never shot a wedding as a primary, but have loved the experience as a secondary. Is that what you're doing here? (I think I'd be scared to death to be the primary at a wedding--just being the husband--twice!! was hellish enough.)

I love the centered glow you gave this image, but I'm not so sure about the dodged blur to the lower right corner.

what a lovely show, well done.

Definitely you have a special touch photographing children.

Awesome capture. I love the square aspect ratio and every little detail in that girl's attitude: the two feet pointed at each other, her hands, the way she is looking back, her expression, …
