I think the word I want to use is "bittersweet". You made all the right choices with this image, Michael. In color, it seemed to be just another rather nice picture, so the choice of b&w was a good one. Had you gone darker, I think it would have become melodramatic, losing most of the summer sweetness that's there, too light and the inherent sadness would go away. As it is, just the right amount of bitter, just the right amount of sweet. This is going to be one of my favorite images of yours.
