Sweet score! Nice choice for BW. A little flat because of the lack of contrast. Looks slighly slanted too, lower on the left.

Yes, this looks to be a proud and emotionally charged moment. Wonderful detail and the grayscale looks nice.

A very good moment caught! Not just the kiss, but the smile on the woman with the glasses, and the back turned of the guy in the hat. One wonders if he (the civilian in the hat) realizes he can't get the girl, but he'd been holding out hope until then....
