1 - DMC - No discernible creativity or effort here for the challenge. Nothing 'sporty' about this at all.

Good photo. I like the dramatic poses & I think your choice of black & white is great. My only complaints are the distance of your subject to the camera (I think this would have been great if we could see the details of his face much clearer) & the deterioration of the image (especially around his shoulder & neck).

You've got a great eye for photography, though. The wall & steps (assuming you deliberately chose this setting!) make a great frame for the couple, and, I can't get over what a good choice black & white was. Excllent job!

I don't think Black and White was a good choice for this photo. The range of grays isn't wide enough to give enough contrast. The subjects don't really stand out from the cement and brickwork. Staying with color would have brought attention to them.

On a less artistic note, I noticed some JPEG artifacts in the picture, especially by the man's hip and along the woman's skirt. I checked the picture and saw that you compressed it to 35kB. You're allowed to use 150kB. Make the file size as large as is legal to keep the picture from being degraded.
