The first thing I noticed were the lady's eyes... they seem too blue to me. They just kept grabbing my attention even though I briefly looked at it.

Welcome to RetouchPRO, Ambrose!

Besides the eyes, I noticed the dress. You seem to have made a whole lot of changes. In the original the pleats and folds are quite clear to see, whereas in your retoration they have completely disappeared.

You've made a good start, but I'd consider doing the dress again.

you also have a camera distortion going on here. if you look at the gentleman you'll see that he just doesnt quite look right, almost like he's leaning back and to our right. this can be corrected with distortion correction tools in p-shop and psp. just be careful of over correction and changing aspects and so on.

oh, and welcome to RP!
