Two cool dudesShot with Canon 5D, 300mm f/4L IS + 1.4x extender
@ 420mm, f/5.6, ISO 200, 1/400s

There’s not much in the way of a story behind this one. I was relaxing in Central Park, people-watching, and I said to myself, “Now those are two cool dudes…”

Part of me says there’s nothing terribly special about the composition or idea of this shot, but I keep looking at it nonetheless. I just think there’s something really interesting about these guys. Maybe it’s the stark contrast between no-hair and whoa-hair. Or the sunglasses. Or maybe it’s the jacket that looks a bit too small. Whatever it is about this photograph, I hope you find it as interesting as I do.

Little processing was done in Lightroom, starting with my custom preset Grayscale, Punchy. From there, I made adjustments to contrast (-), sharpening (-), clarity (+), and exposure (-). That’s it.

Now stop reading my blog, would ‘ya. It’s Christmas! So have a Merry one, be safe, and enjoy the company of your loved ones today. 🙂
