3 Idiots

By kunal_seal
The caption "3 Idiots" is borrowed from an Indian (Bollywood) movie. There those 3 guys were found worthless at there childhood but gradually they became the fainest of there field. When i found these guys playing on the street at a allay of Kolkata (Capital of West Bengal), I found them fighting for no issue but as an when i offered them a pose under the condition of peace they readily accepted and started smiling on the lens. I readily relate the situation with the movie and started on myself.

This is a nice photo of three boys, well handled and converted to mono. Not sure that the title is appropriate though.

Nice one, just a couple of things a tighter crop and some fill light in this to lift the shadows in the faces a bit would improve this better. Have done two mods to illustrate my point Mod2 is a mono conversion.

Frank - Iam assuming the title is a play on a very famous movie here about three college friends who habitually went out of their way to defy convention and were called 3 idiots by their peers and professors, though i guess if you dont know it does seem demeaning Smile

I agree with Prabh when he suggests a tighter crop and some fill in light but for some reason I can't find any mods?

Very well done. Tighter crop needed and a touch of the heavy facial shadows with the dodge tool, but not too much. Colour excellent.
