Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well

You have captured a great moment that expresses the friendship between these two guys well, with their expansive smiles it makes you want to smile yourself. I like that you have converted it to mono it works really. The DOF is good they are nicely isolated from the background but perhaps an even wider aperture would have reduced the background detail even better. The only thing that mars it in a fairly minor way are the blown highlights on top of their heads.

Thanks for your entry Ryan.
