Sight Seeing in Tuscany

This painting started as a landscape of the Tuscan countryside, but I was not happy with the way the paint went down,  and found it a little boring.  It is from a photo I took, and the best way to fix it I thought was to add some figures which I had photographed in a different location.  The result was much more to my liking, however the photo here is not very good.  Because of the large size,  the lighting comes off very unevenly with the right side being far too dark.  Wonder what the chances are of this young couple ever seeing themselves in this picture.  They were probably enjoying Italy on their honeymoon about three years ago.
