The long shadows add a lot to this one.

Nice composition, though it has the feel of a set up shot to me. Good choice to use B+W here.

Fit Challenge Criteria: 2/2
Contrast/Color: 1/2
Composition: 1/2
Photo Quality: 0/2
My Subjective Affinity: 0/2

The idea and composition are well executed. The bland sky presents a major problem. It is also very apparent that you tried to darken it as there is a large halo separating the sky and trees across the photo. The people are too contrasty, while the road does not have enough contrast. With this being an advanced editing challenge, you could have made separate adjustments to both areas individually. Also, subjects walking away from the camera are so hard to capture well. The shots that I have viewed that work the best generally include some interaction between the two subjects.

Good composition - the sky seems a little over processed

Nice capture - Like the idea - Maybe a much wider aperture would have helped separate the womens heads from the background more.
