It needs way more contrast & saturation...looks like your fill-flash fired at full power (& you chose one of the toughest shooting situations to post). When I get on my home computer, I'll post an example of what I mean.

I also cropped it to get rid of some of the off-color leaves & light pole......

I agree w/ Kalypso, it does look like it was a rough time of the day to shoot. Doesn't mean it is a lost cause, just something to think about next time. I like their pose, but don't be afraid to turn that camera on its side and take advantage of those megapixels and not have to crop them all away. My adjustments were some sharpening, color enhancements some darkening here and there and a crop to an 8x10 inch ratio, all adjustments would work better on your full size pic and not introduce artifacts. Mine turned out a little differemt than Kalypso's, but they both give you an idea of what can be done. Nice looking couple!

*edit: maybe I should include the pic.

Thought I would give it a go. Photoshop Elements 4.

Simple crop, adjust of levels, clone out branch and thing she is holding, healing brush on marks on her arm and there you go :-)

Nice job Ed, my favorite edit. Cress that is a good portrait picture, one you will tresure later in life. Do try to do different things to help minimize the surrounding are that taked away from the shot.:G
