    Is it me or does this look saturated for Portra?

    and also http://www.flickr.com/photos/ajuk/37...7622035937674/

    Is it just my imagination or has that come out more saturated than Portra normally does?

    Looks fine to me on my digital monitor. I would expect this result as to saturation if I were using Portra in this application.
    Thank you.

    The saturation looks normal to me - I think it's the subject itself that is influencing your reaction.

    Try looking at the largest version of the image on flickr, cropped to the bride and groom.

    I think it's actually the pic of the little girl that looked less right to me.

    It doesn't look quite right on my computer, but who knows what was done to the scan.

    Looks good to me- I think the expanse of bright white might be skewing your perception a little.

    well,

    since I wasn't there to see what I see in the picture here with MY OWN EYES, I can't say if it look 'normal' or not .

    but to me in my personal opinion, I think that the contrast is just a bit too high. I shoot the 160nc and 400nc emulsions, and my stuff never looks this contrasty, even with a wet darkroom print. It all depends on the lighting though.

    what is it that YOU think? do you think the contrast too high? the skin tones too harsh, the shadows TOO dense? the roses in the background TOO saturated?

    remember that increased contrast can also cause one to think its too saturated.

    but if I were giving this to someone who didn't look at photographs like we do here, I think it would definitely fit the bill. Most people like a bit of saturation in the shots, shows that the place wasn't dead .

    nice shot though. you were able to capture the moment well!

    -Dan
