    Last saturday we were invited to a marriage where I had the opportunity to shoot some "Generations" portraits...
    All shots were made with my Minolta MD 50mm 1.4 and the SEL18-55 kit lens.
    PSE11 and the Nik Collection were used for pp.

    Those are some fun shots that they will enjoy.

    Only small complaint is a few are a bit too soft for me.

    Great shots. I had to look at #3 twice though- I thought that gentleman was sporting some weird Mohawk of something. :)

    @Jim: No, just some decoration in the background... which I did not see when taking the pic... ;)

    Personal preference. Some like that soften look. Me personally not so much.

    However that's the beauty of photography and art in general. There is no strict right or wrong.
