- image is so well presented in B&W.
- time with friends who own cameras is different from time with other friends, and while the people may seem aloof, doing the thing with camera friends is illustrated perfectly.

Beautiful bw conversion and light; my favorite of the challenge.

Very emotive picture. I really like the style with the two persons averted from the main subject/person which reinforces the invisible border and the goal to come together.

This might sound harsh, but your "friends" seem a little on the cold side. Two with their back to you and one looking off in the distance. The image title to me suggests there should be some joyous smiles in the photo.

As for the photo itself, it's wonderful. I love that the lady's face on the left is lit up, but it doesn't seem artificially lit, it seems lit from some natural light source (dare I say, sun).

The black and white processing is well done, and was a nice choice given they were probably wearing a varied selection of colors. It also highlights the shadows and wood tones on the dock. It adds a little to the texture of the sky too.

I see enough to know next month will start out perfectly! Lovely b/w, fine sentiment, and I can't wait to meet you all.
Oh, also have to mention the photography.... that part looks terrific too.

Perfect illumination of her face! Maybe not for that "technical" perfection, but NATURAL perfection :)
