Burt? She'd look good as the runaway bride in Smokey & the Bandit

My son has set up a wedding venue, and yesterday I was shooting a fake happy couple as promotional material for his website. I'm quite pleased with many of the results, but really quite liked this one, so thought I'd share it

She looks wistful, and very pale: my first thought was Miss Havisham. Lovely location, though.

I wanted something a little ethereal, and the light was filtered through the oak & almost spotlighting her, creating the potentially ghostlike image. Some careful fettling in Silver Efex 2 left her skin really pale, and nicely darkened the surroundings & sky. Job done.

Puts me in mind of Reynolds.

That's what I immediately thought ... is the Platonic idea of the English countryside (and of the english virgins, "Britanne vergini" U. Foscolo). Beautiful and mighty oak, beautiful and mighty ropes, probably beautiful and charming bride (I can not see her very well) and... wonderful light.

Here she is in more detail in a Hassyfake photo. And yes, she's beautiful

But the ropes of the swing are sublime (and, like every true sublime, a bit ominous...).

A pano from last night. Not technically sound, more like a proof of concept.

As a side note this one might make rethink my planned computer upgrade as PS with a Nik filter went out to 97% of my 16 GB RAM, 32 might not be as much as I thought it would  :(

Very nice, Mjollnir! Nice, restrained processing as well.

Thanks, Slobodan.

W/all the wonderful tools we have at our disposal (LR5, NIK, etc...) I'm always worried that 'enough' while processing will end up "too much" in the final treatment.

In-camera panorama gone wrong, terribly wrong. I find it quite funny though.

PS. I couldn't have done it much better manually anyway

You failed panoramas or HDRs (as well as those from Armand) can be quite interesting and very spectacular!

Thanks!

I just wonder what the computer was working with to create them. Never works when I try to create something like that.
