I wish i would have set up a rim light to either camera left or right, to chisel the couple off the background.

    A rim light would have been a nice addition, however I think the light is still dramatic enough that it separates the couple from it quite nicely.

    The main thing that stands out to me is this blown highlight. I think that she’s stepping into some sunlight or something, which might have made this an inevitable situation, but I am still curious as to what the scene might have looked like with the exposure cranked to preserve that highlight; it might have looked cool to see a pitch-black background, or a nearly black one with some shadow recovery applied…

    Thanks matt, that light is my flash, it looks blown out here, i think i had enough dynamic range to recover it, i will give it a shot.
