As always your characters and line work are outstanding so I will be speaking mostly about your background.

The main issue with your background is that there is no sense of a horizon or vanishing point. The places I find this most apparent is in the bench, the lamp posts and the thermos (yes I'm nitpicking the thermos)

The background makes it seem that your horizon line is set way above the picture itself, but looking at the characters and composition I would guess it to be between the eyes and collar bone of the female. The bench works to this horizon line and would be fine with minimal adjustment, but the lamp posts would need to be redone (so you are looking up into the top as opposed to down onto it and the lamp post bottoms adjusted to reflect the change, and the thermos would need to be adjusted to make it look like it was farther down.

Establishing your horizon will also help with vanishing point in a picture like this. What may help for a picture at this angle is to start with a very wide file size, so that after drawing initial planning sketches and deciding where everything will go that you add perspective lines from your vanishing point to make sure everything lines up properly.

Hope this helps. I do love this picture, everything from the snow effects to the bushes behind them, the lighting and the character lighted by them. Thanks for posting.
