I am not sure if it's just me, but it bugs me that the two subjects are not perfectly centered. Also, the mountains don't look sharp to me. If I had to use the lens you used, I would've either shot it at f4 to blur them out as much as possible, or f22 to make them sharp, but my lens of choice in this case would'be been your 70-200 at f2.8.

Off center works for me, it seems like they are looking over to the right a bit (at least the one on the right).

I'm not sure I would blur the mountains as much as possible, but I do agree in that I would prefer them to be either a bit more blurred (so it is really obvious you meant it) or sharp. Sometimes you do just have to suck it up and use f22 despite the dreaded diffraction (it's not a complete image killer, especially for a 20MP camera, even if you are making pretty big prints).

I would have tried to keep it so you could make out the terraces if possible. But maybe not so important since there isn't that much going on in the mountains. I would definitely keep them enough in focus that you could tell they were mountains though.

Yea, lets see more.....

Well done portraits work, even if these photographed persons are situated back to the photographer. Light is good here. However I would prefer to try with slightly increase contrast and try with use shutter speed between 1/160 - 1/250 sec.

Great feedback...

I was walking around at lunchtime and came across these two ladies sitting. I was afraid that they would get up and go back to work but I still had time to take a shot at F22...

Thanks

Maybe a higher ISO would have helped get f/16-18 would have been sharper? i think you should be able to push the iso on that camera without noticing too much noise i dont know from experience just assuming. nice shot over all tho.

Depending on your distance to the people, you could have picked a focus point a bit more in front of them at f/11 and still had them sharp w/ more detail in the mountains. Look at a hyperfocal distance chart to understand this.
