The quality is excellent - but why mono/ I would much prefer this in colour - i was brought up in a mono darkroom, but now reserve it for the high contrast hard gritty stuff. in this case, go slightly sepia to add warmth. I would also crop in much tighter on the faces - off the top to the top of her head, down behind his ear and a bit off the bottom.
