    Looks like an added spotlight on the guy on the left (is he a real vulcan buy the way? lol)...

    It's verging on looking over exposed where the lighting is too intense - But i actually really like the composition of this photograph

    Just guessing, you over exposed the image and crushed the blacks. Made the reds a bit more vibrant and added a contrast curve (or maybe just added contrast). The only thing I'm not sure about is if you softened the image, or simply didn't sharpen it.

    Some basic stuff, but the problem is I feel like it was "heavy handed" to the point where I could guess at what was done. Of course I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure I'm close.

    Bring the exposure back down a little, normally I go for high key photos myself though you must keep in mind that the faces of your friends are being melted by the light.

    Anything else you did doesn't make me hate it, its just personal pref at that point.

    any luck? hard to say anything without knowing what you did.
    I will say its soft looking, the contrast of the guys jacket on the right is too much and their faces looks like albino snow owls... too bright and white.
