    Wonderful stuff, Neil.

    Only suggestion I'd make is a slight crop at the bottom to get rid of the logo/text on the boy's shirt/top. It catches your eye and draws attention away from the faces.

    I agree with Donald about the text. However, I wonder if cloning out the text might not serve the purpose while keeping the rather nice composition of the image as it is...

    As far as attracting attention, human faces (especially the eyes) catch my attention most readily, followed by animal faces (again especially the eyes) and finally text...

    There are of course other facets of attention grabbing within an image: bright images, colorful images, sharp subjects in an otherwise less that sharp image, etc., etc...

    Thanks for your comments Donald and Richard, I was that excited when I did the conversion to B&W that I tended to rush the rest of the editing.Its a photo that I hadn't even edited in colour initially,it had just lain in my external hard drive which leads me to think that it might be worthwhile going through the rest of them which may take some time!
