    ...you were given the image below and asked to use it for a website? The industry/theme should hopefully be self-explanatory from the image.

    The image has only been reduced in size to fit on the forum, and I do have a larger version.

    You don't see anything wrong with the picture?

    And it's not a wedding coordinator.

    Dude...you have to have fat bridesmaids on your special day if you're the bride. It's how you stand out and look beautiful!

    But I mean with the quality of the image itself...not the people in it (I'm not even sure who they are.)

    I'm guessing you're asking akin to what I would design wise? Get a few other images that are in the same industry.

    HTML Code:
    <a href="#" class="image-container"><img src="image1.png" class="image" alt="Image" /></a>
    
    <style>
    a.image-container {
    width: [image-width]+15;
    height: [image-height]+15;
    border-radius: 3px;
    box-shadow: 1px 3px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, .15);
    }
    img.image {
    padding: 5px;
    }
    </style>
    I would create a LightBox jQuery effect on it, letting people see a larger version of the picture. Other then that sorry if this isn't what you were asking.

    I'd play with the image, because as it stands it's not of a quality I'd ever put on a site.
    There's no real composition to it, it's more a snapshot than a deliberately framed photograph. There is no real focal point - I know it's supposed to be the bride and groom, but there are too many other elements (other people) on the same plane to allow them to truly stand out as the focus of the shot.
    And then, the foreground on both sides is so busy and distracting that it draws the eye away from the happy couple as well.
    The lighting is poor - there is not enough light to see the faces clearly, but it is too bright to stand as a silhouette shot, either.
    I took it and spent 10 very amateur minutes on it in Photoshop - a pro could do much better, I'm sure, but it really does need something done to it.

    P.S. I hope this isn't too harsh a review (if this is a photo taken by you or your wife or best friend, then it's fabulous and needs no interference! )

    No offense taken. I didn't take the picture. You said a lot of what I said and added something I never even noticed.

    Well...I did the only thing I could with the picture.

    Even that looks bad, but not as bad.

    I just looked at the image again, and realized quite by accident that it was taken with a B****berry 9850. The original shot is a 4 MP shot.

    Here's the kicker...they're using it in print materials. They're actually using a cell phone shot in print materials.
