I think the darkness of the shadows is inconsistent, particularly the middle umbrella shadow needs to be darker, also the tip of the far right umbrella could use a little more definition,

Charming picture!

Once you define your shadows, take another look at your highlights on your subjects, make sure they all, including the flowers, correspond to the direction of the light. That being said - it is a cheerful and appealing painting.
