Re: Artistic merit?

I can see why you might like this picture, especially if you know one or more of the people in it.  Some things I don't particularly like about it, though.

- The background is drab, and appears to have a bluish cast.  Maybe tweaking the white balance & contrast could help.

- The vertical lines are off.  A little rotation and keystone correction may help.

- I don't particularly like the lower right corner.  Maybe crop in from the lower left to reduce or eliminate the stuff in the lower right (without losing the upper right).

You might even consider doing this in selective color, with the background black & white, but maintaining the colors of the skin & clothes of the two people.

Just some thoughts.  If you are happy with it the way it is, then that is OK, too.
