Don't know if the mills are obvious for the quick voter, they are (but perhaps too) in the colored version.

My first raw en b&w conversion with lightroom (beta 4).

Greetings from the Critique Club!

For me, the image is a bit too busy. You have a man reading, a woman walking, a big gnarly tree with lots of branches, and it looks like a building in the background. I think it would've been better with focus on one of these subjects.

Also, the image is a bit flat on the darker side. Learn to play with your levels, and curves when doing black and whites. It will help make your images pop more.

very nice moment!! maybe I would like to see it without the woman on the background, or maybe if she was a bit more to the right? it would also be cool to see his expression more clear, I think he might have had a really cool expression there!

Lots of WOW factor in this. I love the lighting on the person sitting in the bench and the kind os surreal feel to it

interesting location. i wish the windmills were more prevolent. the other passerby seems more of a distraction to me than a useful character in your scene.
