ok, at this size it is apparent that the background has been photoshopped due to the lighting difference between the subjects and the background.. i take it the original shot was shot in the mid-afternoonish outside?

they may enjoy this look though.. it is something different... you may just want to show them a copy of the original and then this version and just let them choose.. or try some other backgrounds..

someone here, maybe widowmaker, may be able to help you out, he has more experience changing out backgrounds than i do as i don't do a lot of potraiture...

Good eye on that lighting difference Dustin. It does give good hint to an edit especially if you look at the mans right side where it meets the background. He is brightly lit in the front yet the area on the ground is not catching any light. I also see a spot to the ladies left down her back side which was apparently left over from the original background and if its visible at this size it will most likely jump out on print. Its a dark edge right on her rear, starting just above the concrete edge.

The shot still looks good though.

I have a question. The background has an obvious copyright on it in the top left corner...did you take it or do you have permission to use it?

I wouldn't dream of using any picture (the background) without permission, so yes I do have permission - and the signature is mine.

Thanks all for the comments.
