Well… that’s what I was speaking of. In the “Uncle Fred” photo, it looks like there is a fog over the groom and the man on the tractor behind him. Which would you rather show, nicely exposed sky, beautiful colours in the dresses and uncluttered background or blown out sky, over exposed fields, lots of clutter and under exposed people? OK, that’s a rhetorical question.
You can put the differences into words, but you really get the impact when you see both images side by side. Your photo beside the bridesmaid’s husband’s is one of the best advertisements I have seen for using a knowledgeable photographer. Two or three side by side comparisons like this and any reasonable person would realize they got their money’s worth. Good job!
