Because the boys (son and grandson) were in too harsh a shadow, I couldn't do much with this one other than let them go into silhouette against the background of Yosemite Falls and the Valley. I dunno. It is odd enough that I kept it. Thanks for your thoughts on the matter.

This seems to be an image more about the place than the people.  And it was shot at a difficult time of day.  The choice to convert to  B&W in these conditions is a good one. The way I read this scene, "the boys" are helpful to give a sense of scale, and they are placed well in the frame, but they aren't the primary subject.  So it might be useful to give it the Ansel Adams treatment - darken the sky even more to emphasize those wispy clouds, and see if there is a way to bring up the waterfall.
