I really like the content of this photo but not really sure how to process it (if at all)... black and white? cropping??
Any ideas and advice would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Nice familial sense and interesting color.

Perhaps a crop and a little modest vignette?

I like the color contrasts of the son with the yellow wall and the contrast of his colorful outfit with the monochrome of the father. I don't think the "bookend" framing works here since the window on the right pull the eye behind and past the figures. I edited by brightening the figures a bit, using content aware scaling to expand the blank wall behind them and cropped down along the horizontal line of the grill work in the window to eliminate the ||| vertical leading lines...

Very good capture!

I wouldn't crop it, because I like the windows symmetry ... however I would go b&w

cheers, francesco

Had time for BW re-work...

LR4Beta, CS5 using strictly history brush with blend modes altering opacity, Sharpen & Blur filters.

Tried to bring the windows in a bit closer together / rebalance.

Well, I've viewed the variations presented here and out of all possibilities, I like your original best. The only thing I might suggest you try is cropping a little off the top to make it even more panoramic.

There's lots to like. The color contrasts are great and there's a real story between the son deep in thought and his tethered father trailing behind.

Very nice. I was thinking b&w but after looking at different variations here, I liked the original better.

Tough choices with great variations. The original itself is very strong. I love the relationship. I love the color. I think the image is a bit long, but that could fit with the story. I like the bookended feature. It adds to a sense of traveling a distance, perhaps passing many windows.
Print and hang!!!
