I saw this gorgeous couple in Venice a few months ago; had to take a picture of them and now print the negative... .
This is a complicated one with lots of contrast between shadows and highlights: papers can't cope with son much dynamic range so a good copy needs a lot of work in terms of dodging and burning, or applying the split grade technique. This copy is OK-ish but the blacks are a bit too dense on their clothes, and the top of the buildings and sky need some darkening. That's part of the fun of darkroom printing anyway!
