Excellent photos.

Instead of using Gaussian Blur I would suggest using Lens Blur instead since it replicates behavior of a lens rather than the uniform blurring provided by Gaussian Blur. And to get even more advanced you can create a Lens Blur Depth Map which is basically an alpha channel that allows you to paint on which areas in be in focus and blurred. The dark grey portions will be in focus, the light areas will be blurred.

There's an old tutorial on created Blur Depth Maps right here on POTN: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=102294

Great shots Rivas, #3 & 4 are my favorites. I personally would've desaturated the greens and yellows in #1 a bit, but that's just me. Nicely done!

I agree that the couple is definitely the center of attention and that is the way it should be...I like them all but I think the 1st may be just a tad over saturated....well.....​maybe not.....nice work!
