    Love the colors of the background bokeh and close hugging of children brings it together. I might have retouches some of the highlights in photoshop on foreheads to smooth out tones., however expressions are great. Lighten up the man’s forehead and blend in the shine on the woman’s forehead with smooth transition and this would be perfect in my opinion.  Nice composition overall.

      Whenever retouching lighting things like this, be careful not to remove the highlight completely, otherwise the image might begin to look confusing, because the viewer will not understand why their eyes feel like something is off.

      So, whenever you retouch stuff like that, do it on a separate layer and the experiment with dialing the opacity back a tiny tiny bit, so that the highlights are still just faintly visible.
