I was not shooting for this challenge specifically when taking this shot but playing with the higher ISO settings of the camera to see what noise/grain I could achieve. Nor was my son posing for a shot as he was eating breakfast and looked up as he heard the beeps of the camera’s auto focus and the lighting is all natural. I was mindful enough to change my camera settings to both RAW & JPEG.

Oh, to explain the title just look at Manics avatar.

But I do like the results even though he is not quite centred. This is only a filler I hope as I have an idea for this challenge but I might not get the chance to do it.

Editting steps - sharpen, resize to 800 pixesl wide, sharpen, save for web 287kb.
