To me they look a little over processed. Or perhaps uploading them to the web took some quality away.

On the last one, the highlights on the dress are blown. Maybe expose for a stop less next time, and fix any dark shadows caused by that in post.

The composition seems to be good though, and that's the hardest part (i.e. why I still haven't tried a wedding ). Proper exposure comes over time with practice. If this was your first attempt at a wedding, it was pretty good.

would you mind posting a shoot SOOC (straight out of camera)?

I'm going to look for some exif but would you mind posting that also?

Thanks

Faces and skin look red on my (recently calibrated) monitor.

Im not sure what you expect considering they are attached images instead of linked from a site like flickr....

I never quite understood why people come here to show off their images only to attach them instead of using a high quality hosting site

ah it's alright. he said he is just helping a friend. choosing the best way to display photos sometimes takes a bit of time. for instance, shooting in aRGB for print and converting to sRGB for upload to a host then html linking it into a post....that could take some time to fully understand.

im interested in the exif to see if the blown highlights are solvable and if maybe the fuzziness could be from using a lens wide open which could cause a loss of sharpness.

Keep at it - honestly, these need improvement in all aspects.
Importantly, the moments captured here aren't all that memorable.
Technically, the colours are unnaturally rendered particularly in #1; the 'softness' I'm supposing you've done intentionally in PP with a drop in clarity, perhaps in an unsuccessful attempt to salvage clipped highlights (not suited in most of these shots); framing and composition are quite ordinary, and exposure is difficult due to harsh ambient lighting, which needed balancing with bounced fill-flash.

unfortunately I have to agree with Ash on all points here....
sorry man, but there is a lot of room for improvement...

Are you sure these are K7? They appear to have almost no DR or sharpness or.... perhaps they're frame-grabs from a video?
