At sunset. I thought they were an elegant couple, though I don't know if they were a couple. I wondered about them. I would like to be elegant too. I think. Or maybe I just enjoy seeing elegance. I liked this in colour, because there wasn't much - sunset light, dark and light clothing, and a fair bit of haze unbluing sky.

The tilt of the hats - they're both watching the same thing, but he with either binoculars or a camera (I first though binoculars, but then realized, duh - it could be a camera). His body language says he finds it more interesting than she does; she's with him because she's always with him and wouldn't have it any other way.

As for the toning, it has the warm yellow/gold of evening in summer. There's a section on the back of his shirt where it seems non-contiguous as far as the toning part - not sure why that is - and the tone doesn't appear to continue into the sky. These "technicals" may be unsettling to voters. On my "sometimes too light" monitor, the back of her shirt is noisy. Looks fine on my "sometimes too dark" monitor.
