Really like this - your observation and timing are spot on. Smile

Only thing working against the photo,a bit, is the distracting elements. One solution might be to isolate the two young men by cropping and then blurring the remaining background - which is what I have done in the mod I've uploaded for you (using 3 pixels of gaussian blur).

Hope that helps.

Nice semi-candid. But, I would have either cropped, zoomed or otherwise got in closer to make the shot just of those two excellent faces.

Hello, Kevin. An excellent mono candid with strong contrasts and lovely expressions on the "friends for life". I find the white tops of the two on the left very distracting and, considering they have their backs to us, have cropped them off in my modification. I left the man on the right in the shot because I feel he adds to the "work" atmosphere and three is a good number. I removed the bits and pieces from the sky, cloned out some bits from the bottom right and used the burn tool on the remaining bright whites.

An excellent crisp, sharp shot, lovely monotone.

I agree with the comments already made re the two in the middle being the real focal point of the image, however Ive loaded a mod with a landscape crop, vignette applied to focus attention, and suggest it could be strong enough to take a slight sepia tone.
