Hey guys,

I would love some C&C for this one.

Shot at Aspen, CO.

Exif: ISO 100, f/1.8, 1/1000, 50mm



Thank you!
I like the b&w, but I think I'd have left their legs in the pic. especially for the woman on her toes. how would it look cropped vertically?
Thanks guys!

Love the caption Tyler, I think I'll use the same! :)
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.
Thanks Jason!

Yes, I haven't spent a lot of time fine tuning my B&W conversion process, I'll try and learn more about this and give it another shot!

I had not noticed the awkwardness in the hug before, now I see what you mean. :/

Yeah I realize the background is very distracting. I tried applying a selective blur during PP maybe I need to increase that.

Thanks again for your feedback!
