OK when I was editing this I so did not realize how bad this turned out. I was super tired and should of known better.

Yes I see the blow outs and the shadows. That was my processing not the original images.... I was trying an effect and obviously it turned out very bad. :(

Live and learn right? At least the main images that are actually going to the client look 100 times better. That's what I get for trying to be creative!

I don't know it tells a story, or i am missing it. The colors are kind of washed out, especially the middle photo where the bride's face is too dark.

IMO, this is too far from the subject, and the similar pillar at the center left & right edge not matching up height-wise I find quite distracting. There is also a different tone (almost greenish / cyanish) in the right portrait that is not present in the other two. It also looks like you've used on-the-camera flash, creating harsh shadows from the bride & left pillar. This is a great memory picture, showing nice detail in the full dress. However, this is a difficult triptych to get right, and there is quite a bit that could have been done in pp to improve the final result.

Nice idea... I think all three of the shots are a bit too similar though.
That, and the shadows caused by the flash aren't helping either (unless that is the way you intended it to look - in that case it's not working for me :) )

Comes off as a snapshot with harsh flash, I'm afraid. The first two pics have some seriously blown highlights on the dress. I'm afraid the poses don't really do much to grab my attention or convey anything either. Sorry to be so harsh but I wanted to at least explain my low vote.

lighting looks a little harsh (producing some blown highlights and undesirable shadows). Good luck
