Default Brothers reunited!

My uncle is down from LA after more than 20 years. He has come to meet my dad, his elder brother.

My father suffered a serious stroke a few years ago, and they were very happy to see each other after so long.

My first attempt at portraits.

(my uncle is in the foreground).

Feedback, comments etc most welcome!

dropmyload, the picture would have been great and brings more liveliness if it has been taken in B&W. My artistic thought would have gone that way.

why dont you try..

Ok, increased contrast and tried to convert to b&w. What do you think?

I liked it. Thanks for trying. my suggestion was take the picture in B&W itself originally instead of Post processing. Basically when you think "it as moments" then try as a B&W.
