[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a photo of my brother getting a haircut from a friend, taken in Vancouver a few years back.

Since the original post, I have learned how to use Photoshop more or less effectively, and have touched this picture up a little, obtaining a result which I think is far more pleasing. I cloned out a towel rack and a couple other distracting and irrelevant details. I also increased contrast, and brought out more details, and then slightly sharpened the whole.

I like the expressions on both their faces, which are focused on the matter at hand, and the background lighting and shadows seem to me very pleasant.

Hi Andre, seems to be a lot of noise here and not much clarity. The expression was good, though, and nice subject. TFS.
