Like my past two pics ( Passing the Time on a Ferry and Keeping a Lookout on Deck ) this was taken aboard a BC Ferry. This time on the way back to Vancouver from Victoria.
As you can tell, west coast summers can be a tad on the cool side. I like that though, it's better than the humidity back in Toronto!
Post-pro: conversion to b/w, some cropping, curves (for contrast), and a border.

i like the composition and tones. well seen! the frame bothers me though, the inner white/grey line...

I like a lot the BW and hard contrast. It creates a feeling of photojournalism in a scene that if had kept the colors would loose much of it's strenght.
Great placement of that couple and POV. ashalower DOF could have worked well here too.

The composition is really strong here and that carries the most weight in this image. You can't help but follow the line of seats from one group of people to the other. Well seen and captured.

The shapes of the benches are making a nice flow, but I think the people in the background is competing too much for attention. I'd suggest cropping lower, just below the top of the railing to keep attention on the two foreground figures. It would have been nice if one of them showed the profile though.

Super strong composition. You can look at it in any position : that serpentine diagonal will work.
In response to Torben's point, I don't personally care much about people at the top as long as they don't overlap on each other or on important features.
This pic is good enough for me.
