    Do a portrait crop with the "v" at the bottom left corner to eliminate all green trees and possibly convert to b&w.

    I'd try to stay away from adding faux DoF. It just looks tacky, and doesn't add to the image. Especially when there's a lack of DoF where it shouldn't be.

    Scrap the blur.

    Convert to BW

    Crop in a little closer.

    I like the subjects, they work well together.
