    It is a very nice idea (minimalist type thing) but I don't like the composition.

    I would have cut the bottom to about where the reflection of the closest person is and added as much at the top. I would also have cropped some on the left and added that much to the right.

    And yes, it is a bit gray. A little more contrast would help.

    well, it being a B&W the white balance is irrelevant, thought i would personally crop a little bit on the lower side of the frame, everything else is spot on, more contrast would only mean blown highlights

    Thanks so much guys...as for the cropping dealio, I tried it, and the photo turns out to be a simple moment caught of two silouettes in the water. The way I Have it now, however, seems more artistic. Thanks for the suggestions, though
