These could potentially be nice photos but the processing choice just doesn't work for me and really shouts of an amateur who'd rather play about with processing more than concentrating on delivering a quality photo. If the B&G like it that's fine but for me it's a big no.

Thanks for your input, and yes you're right I am an amateur but I think it's unfair to say I'd rather play with processing than delivering quality pictures
You've kinda contradicted yourself by saying they could potentially be nice photos and then two sentences later say there not quality! If you don't have anything contructive say why bother ?

If you read my comment properly you'd see I didn't contradict myself and if you take my comment as a positive instead of being negative you'll see it was constructive.

To produce a quality image you can't let the processing distract from the image. My personal opinion and it is just an opinion, is that your processing does distract.

I hope you don't mind but I've done a quick B&W conversation of your first image to show that in my opinion it becomes a much better image. Happy to remove this edit if you object.

I think overall you've done a good job. I like the first one without the processing and maybe just in black and white.
You have also amputated their feet in either taking the shot or post processing so if it was the latter make
the necessary adjustments.
