    You know, I'm no pro at lighting (count me as clueless) but it looks like it may be a little bright around their backs?

    Do you have a light meter? It just looks a little bright - maybe a stop over exposed.

    Looking at the histogram there's a large gap left that shows the overexposure.

    Check the exposure using your incident light meter. If you don't have a meter try stopping the lens down a stop and checking the image again or even turning the power of your lights down.
