Its not too dark, but all of your grays are muddy. How did you do the conversion?

Did you, perhaps, simply convert your color picture to grey scale or completely desaturate?

I really like the overall moment. It looks authentic. I would also agree that the conversion looks flat. If anything, my eye gets drawn to the brightness of the water and away from the subjects. What does the color version look like?

Do you have the RAW?

You caught a great moment and the RAW could go a long way in dealing with exposure issues.

You mean that's the unedited pic. Raws don't display so thats not the raw image.

in these situations (backlit) using a flash, even the tiny built in one, can make a huge improvement in your subject exposure. I doubt it would be to bright even with "normal" setting, but if it was you could use FEC (flash exposure compensation) to tone it down or pump it up.

I believe the poster is taking a shot at the word "to" vs "too" in the thread title.
