What gives this pic it's 'WOW' factor?

    Hope I am in the right spot.

    Found this by accident.

    D3, 50mm (guessing a prime), F4, 1/250

    So it would be 25mm for us with 2x crop factors.

    Exif says Lightroom.

    Is it the D3 and it's color depth, Lightroom or a combo of both that gives it the 'wow' factor?

    Nice depth for sure. And nice vineyard setting!
     
  3. The use of flash does make the couple stand out from the rest of the shot but there are a few distracting elements in the photo itself that I would have tried to have avoided.

    I would've photoshopped that string and post out. Nice photo though, almost looks like a backdrop.

    Sorry, I do not feel any "WOW" sentiment with this pic.
    I find the fill-in flash overdone and un-natural.
    And I think the wire and pole should have been avoided or PP'ed out.

    Just my 0.01 Euro, of course :rolleyes:

    Have a nice day,

  6. Those amongst other things were what I was alluding to. Avoiding such problems should be bread-and-butter for a professional wedding photographer.

    Ah, flash, that's what I was missing.

    They are so distinct from the background but I knew it was something more than just aperture going on there.

    Thx all for helping an amateur out.
