I really love the happy expressions of these guys. They were at a 100 year celebration of buses in the North West of England.

Greetings from the critique club,

i have to say, when i looked at this image i could not tell why you got 5.6 on it and not a higher score. the picture is technically great.
the Black and white conversion is superb, the contrast is nice, the composition is good.

but then i realized something, this picture does not have a story,which is the heart of street photography. in other words, it does not intrigue the viewer, or convey a message(in my opinion of course).
and i think this is what was the dowfall of this shot.

hope this critique was helpfull,

I like the black and white conversion, but the image doesn't tell much of a story which diminishes its impact
