I like the B&W and the implied intimacy.

One thing I would change is to back farther away. With a shot like this, especially with that kind of intimacy, I think the couple should look "alone". When they fill the frame like this, the viewer feels part of something that's personal, where we don't belong.

Thank you for the comments and suggestion.

Hi Canis. This is a good photograph IMO. The B&W gives it a very attractive " feel." Well taken.

Like it...as is. People 'pop' nicely through good use of F stop.
