    Shot in jpeg only. Very new to photography and this was my first week with the camera. Such an improvement over a point and shoot. Can't get enough at this point.

    Great set of images, especially considering you're new to the system (and to photography in general?). Congratulations on your nuptials and also on joining the :43: community.

    My favorite from the set is the shot of your lovely bride (I'm presuming) in the reflection with the Dia de los Muertos bride and groom -- very appropriate to the occasion. I think perhaps I would try to crop it a bit tighter to see if you could remove the gentleman in the right of the frame, though.

    I also like the "sunset with drink" shot, which is a classic of the tropical vacation genre. There appears to be a slight tilt of the horizon that I'd try to correct and I also might also try to crop so that the horizon is not so close to the center of the image (according to the "rule of thirds").

    This is a good start; you have a good eye. Just a few tips:

    1 - Keep your horizons level
    2 - Watch that you don't unintentionally leave feet or other body parts out of the frame (10 and 11)
    3 - You can (almost) always find a more interesting composition than the one with the subject in the center of the frame. It looks like you've already tried for this in some of your shots, but even the ones where you didn't could benefit.
