It seems I'm on a trend with B&W candids these days...

Hey, what could be better than mother and child in a candid black & white? Awesome capture of mother and daughter love. Very well executed and thanks for uploading.

Nice combination of elements. I might play with the cropping just a little as I think a punchier image could emerge, but I may be over thinking this.

I tried just that. Making it tighter to the left either crops out the girl's foot, or removes most of the sky, if I want to preserve the frame ratio. Cropping to the right would require a square composition, which didn't work as well, or again remove the sky.

The empty space to the right ended up being more pleasing to my eyes.

I was thinking of cropping from the top just to top of the tree on the left, with a corresponding removal from the right side to preserve the aspect ratio. That would keep just a bit of sky where the tracks disappear into the distance. And maybe not even all of that, but just a bit more. But I fully admit I'm not sure if will make it any better; it is just a thought. My general rule is I push PP beyond the limits first as that's the only way to know where the limits are and how an image might go wrong through the wrong treatment.
