Well, I guess I need help on two accounts. First of all, do you like either of the shots. I've already got some feedback on this, and I don't think the pose went over very well. Second of all, if you were to keep it in, how would you process it? I'm having a hard time, because she's orange, but he's cool.
Here are the SOOC's. Pulled into ACR, then opened in PSE, resized and sharpened for web. I'd love any and all opinions.
I'm not personally a HUGE fan of the pose since you can't see his face or anything. It just seems a little more awkward. If you think the client would like it then I would maybe selective warm up just his skin tone so they were a little closer in tone?
ETA: I played around with it some and was able to get the skin tones closer together by upping brightness/exposure and upping contrast. Then I warmed up his face a little. I think maybe the pose would have gone over better if it was more from the side than straight on so you could still see him...
I can't really help with processing too much, but I prefer #2 as well. Like Sadie said, you can see the joy in her face in that one. I love the idea of the pose, but I think it would've been better to be a bit higher up so you could see a little of his face too.

I'm a bit late, but I do like #1. I wouldn't be happy with it as a stand alone photo but as part of a set from a shoot I'd be happy to have that.
I agree with Gemma and Tina
