Does the black and white ruin it? Want to see the color version? I feel like it's flat... Needs more cropping right?

The halo around them needs to be fixed.

You can only do so much fill in post--if you wanted the background as-is but wanted the couple a little more exposed, you should have just added light while photographing. I'm wondering if you're working on a calibrated system, because it's hard to imagine your not seeing the obvious halo from wild dodging.

The BW would be fine with a little more contrast and sans the Halo around the couple.

The halo makes it a hell nay. The image is strong enough that it deserves better post work.

Nice shot except for the halo. Also curious to see the color version. I think the crop is OK unless you can show her feet.

The halo kills it for me too.. Spend a bit more time on the processing, and I think you'll have a great shot here.

as has been said, the halo is all we see. Post an unedited copy and let's see what comes of it.

The halo is kind of obvious, and the black and white conversion is just flat.
