I love this. I'm giving this a 10 for the sheer perversity of it.

That got a laugh out of me. Great expressions.

Interesting technique employed here. Looks like a charcoal drawing. Nicely composed and interesting set up.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy):

Positives: I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like this - it's very original. The haloing around the figures gives a composite effect; I'll assume it isn't but the overall effect is one that results in this image looking like a cell from a comic book. The woman's eye expression contributes to this feel. I'm not sure what else I'm seeing - rain? I think so, steam? smoke? mist? something else - but I can't discern what it is.

Critical stuff: This soo says comic book to me that I would've liked to have seen a much more contrasty post-process and possibly even a highly saturated or false colour version.

Overall: All credit to you for bringing such an original image to the table and actually I kinda like it!
