    Hi Igor,

    The scene and the pose look pretty good, however the overall tonal management seems to make the image feel a little too flat in general. I wish that there were just a few more areas of darker shadow, so that the image doesn’t have too much of a 2-dimensional feel to it. I feel like the harsh lighting is great, for this outdoor scene, and it would still look great if it were processed to have a little bit more natural tones.

    The next thing that I notice is this thing over here, are they supposed to be rays of sunlight?  They’re a bit distracting, partly because they have hard lines even though they’re in an area of bokeh blur, and partly because they’re coming from the “wrong” side to be light, since the illumination that is actually on the couple is coming from the left. Instead of this, I would have added just a little bit of faint flare from the left, to try and mimic the natural lighting. Even then, however, that would indicate backlighting, when the couple and the scene are indeed frontlit.
