I wonder if this would be received as candid. It is unstaged and has emotion, but they're all facing away, no face emotions... and stalking them with telephoto, nc, nc.
edit: slight crop, levels, channel mixer to generate grayscale, both shadow&highlights, curves, resized, usm, border

I love the composition with the exception of his head being cut off at the top.

Too bad that you cut/crop the head of the man, otherwise it would be a good one.

The sense of "moment" is present in this image and the obvious character being captured carries some visual impact. Technically, it's a very well composed image which is a plus including a nearly perfect conversion to black and white. From an artistic standpoint, it lacks impact. A worthy entry into the challenge just lacking that something special to make it stand out.

the repeat of the pairs walking really drive us into the scene - a great find and a really nice photo

border doesnt help as it calls attention to crop of mans head and so close to his right foot; good b&w and angle. good candid.
