I'm not loving the b&W on this. I do agree with it being in b&w but, I just don't like THIS conversion. Also, the pose is a little strange to me. It's kinda a half hug half kiss thing. Looks, to me, like he wants a kiss and she isn't giving it to him. His half hidden face turned toward the hair on her head gives the impression that she turned from his kiss. That in return makes me feel as though she is only giving him a hug to appease him.
I would also like to see a little less going on in the background. The people on the right (ordering food?) are just a little too in focus still. It was the first thing my eye went to after trying to see the guys face.
The second crop is better, btw. The one in color does nothing for me.
