Ditch the selective colour!

It's really nice aside from that: you've got nice light, great detail in the dress, nice skin tones and the composition is good... but the selective colour just ruins it for me.

I'm not a huge fan of selective colour either, I think that the photo would actually look very nice in total black and white. Otherwise, great pic! Thanks for sharing!

Lighting is great, noise looks really nice.
The selective color is too distracting, maybe you should soften the color.
But the main subject would be you in that photo... so be the centre of attention.

I agree I never liked the selective color. However the bride wanted it and she payed extra for the service. The client is always right (most of the time) lol
