A gorgeous bride holding her veil

This photo was taken with a Nikon D70 using natural light. I used an oval marquee, then feathered it 250 pixels and applied Gaussian blur to the background. I also ever so slightly fisheyed the background to give it a little more depth. Finally, a minor vignette was added. I do find the car in the background a bit distracting but don't have the skills yet to clone it out.

Be more watchful about what's going on around your subjects, like cars, then you don't have be concerned about big cloning projects.

This was not a flash, it was natural light.

It's not just the car, it's the whole busy background that's a big problem with this shot. Your others are better.

if this is natural light, you have to look better. not all natural light is nice to the skins. this is not good the skins tones.
