Psst, meet me outside the gate, we gotta talk about Louie.
Three little guys having a talk, spotted along the road side in Maramures.
Converted to B&W using the channel mixer. Shadows altered, 1.2% grain added.

This is really clever, Clifton. The photo's composition is just perfect: lots of context that sets the stage for their meeting. I love the contrasty, grainy look here, too. Really fun, engaging photo!

I love your Romania pics, makes we want to go there. This one is really cute, the middle boy ( or maybe girl ?)looks like a big standing doll. I like how we see one sideways, one showing his back and the other facing us, and all of them alined in a light diagonal crossing all these vertical lines in the background.

This is super, very nice composition with the kids making deals etc, love your bw conversion here. Nothing to complain here (hence my critique is very short).
If I wanted to nit pick then perhaps heving a bit more debth on the left and a puppy or kitten looking at them, but that's asking too much.

Very nice shot Clifton. I love the attitude of these childs, they look very serious, like adults...
I like the look of the kid standing on the left, he seems to be very interested by the conversation between the two others.

Hi Clifton. This is a great b/w. I do like the grain added. It was done in a modest but effective manner. How do you like that lens? I'm thinking of getting it. Seems like the results are very clear. Nice one Clifton.

Very cool Cliff. I like this alot. It has a nice timeless sort of feel. It's a good BW conversion. My only suggestions (though this is great as is) are more DoF, and I think you oversharpened a touch too much.

Very sweet, these kids..;o) I love their hats! B&W works fine here... Well done.. Léonie

Funny note. I like the idea of these little guys having a "discussion" here. This evokes a "Little Rascals" feeling and I like it. The grainy B/W is great, too.
