    Certainly hurts my eyes, but I've seen worse.

    Can't believe that passes for wedding photography.. or in fact anything at all..


    They can add fucking bubbles and a greyed out cyan sky, and vignette the crap out of it, but cant straighten that horizon. Well I suppose there is no saving such shitty photography to begin with..

    Dress is nice and white though :/

    not sure why these threads keep popping up, every tog here has taken a shit photo and thought it was the bees knees at one point or another. perhaps as a humbling experience we should start a thread titled "post the worst photo you've produced" wonder how popular that would be :rolleyes:

    One that came to mind was the Moran photography competition, photo of a girl eating a chicken roll with clouds photoshopped into the background.

    Yeah, most likely being a camera owner as opposed to a photographer (or rather "photographer" in this case) or hobbyist.

    And certainly not as principle wedding photographer I wouldn't think so. :rolleyes:

    Fuck the exposure then push the curves around, you'll end up with crap like that. Make sure you add a shitty vignette for good measure, it helps too.

    It's crap, but far far from the worst I've seen. There's a big difference though between a shit photo, and a shit photo from someone that tries to pass themselves off as a professional and charge for their services.

    +1


    It reminds me of those tacky Japanese sticker/card photos I used get when I was a teenager... with the bubbles/cutesy background. Not good to go into the wedding album though...

    Too much foreground.
    As mentioned above the horizon not being level looks wrong and detracts you from the subject.
    Probably in part due to photographer not standing on level ground.

    The bubbles could be removed and the vignetting fixed, but there is no fixing the way the grooms head is leaning in.
    It wouldn't of hurt to have someone place the bottom of her dress, rather than leave itthe way it was in the photo.
