The backlighting here was fairly strong, and once again given that we weren't allowed to use flash, I had to rely on Photoshop's Shadow and Highlights tool (as well as traditional curves and levels) to salvage this photo. The contrast of the poses and facial expressions of the 2 individuals here really make this image for me.
