Does the second one look to anyone else like he's trying to drown her? In general it feels quite off kilter, as well.

These feel rather pale and washed out to me. This is a look that plays better in color, I think.

They look nice, but the pattern on the guy’s shirt is distracting. IMO, a solid-color shirt on the guy would do wonders for this set.

There's a blueish color cast on the first one, and a magenta on the third. Was that something you meant to do or did you want to just be plain grayscale?

I Am here together with Amolitor. There is something wrong with the contrast, almost no blacks to counter whites, skin seems featureless, the gray scale seems to be compressed. I like the idea of this pictures but just maybe the background should be chosen better. This one delivers plethora of distractions, it's just to rich.
