Not sure I know what overground is but I love the toning and rendering. Love that one is looking at the viewer. The white spot in the middle bothers me as it is distracting (toned down or cloned out maybe?) But I like everything else about the image. 9 - good luck in the challenge!

Good b&w. The lady on the left doesn't add much, a portrait-crop study of the one on the right would be better imho, at least that's where my attention goes to all the time.
