First, you have an awesome steampunk/retro dressed couple as the main subjects of the shot! The photo is taken against the light but the sky is blown out and the sun's glare between the couples heads is more of a distracting element when it could be a contributing element. The sun behind them needs to be a supporting element to the scene - for example taking the shot at a lower angle that the sun is directly behind the left lens on the man's hat. Composing the sun's position there would be open up the possibility of a sun starburst pattern radiating from that 'touch'. Another possible placement of the sun is directly behind the woman's bonnet such that the lace trim will be illuminated with gorgeous light and appear like a halo. Let the sun be an active participant in this portrait of two interesting people dressed in vintage/retro costumes.


Funny, I shot four other pictures where the sun was behind the umbrella, behind the bonnet, behind the other hat and behind the woman's shoulder but I liked this one the most :)
