The lighter one looks good except on the bride's dress - it blows the highlights.

There's a bit of discoloration on the edges of the four chairs that could be tidied up, but otherwise it's looking good to me :)

Thanks guys.. I'll cleanup the chairs.. JoAnn after all this time I'm confused about the blown highlights.. nothing on my dress barely reaches 240 - what number do you go for in whites...I've toned down the dress and cleaned up the chairs and am sending them home.. thanks. :hug:

It's less about numbers at a particular point than losing the details in the highlights. When you can see small amounts of tonal variations in the fabric that give it shape and texture in one version, but it's mostly flat color in the other

These crops are enlarged to try and illustrate better, but see if this helps explain what I meant
