you know what I like about this shot. The title says "waiting for the green light" they are about to enter this new life together. But what awaits them on the other side of the stret? Two big warnings signs that say "DO NOT ENTER" :D
This makes me laugh, it seems set up but I will give the benefit of the doubt. 7

Nice capture - Nice tones and location but the post on the left is very distracting - If only they were a little right more or you a little left.

Great entry for the challenge and a truly magnificent B&W conversion. Has the air of a Robert Doisneau image of emotions caught candidly

Outstanding 9

I suspect this may have been set up, in which case you might have moved them just a touch to keep the pole from being between them. Otherwise, I don't mind the busy setting - emphasizes that they're in their own world at the moment.
