This picture is a tribute to my Grandpa. He died a few years back, but he's still with me. I am wearing his tie in the picture. He was a great man and I miss him dearly.

Steps:
USM
Brightness/Contrast

USM

My wife liked a different picture in the series I took, but this one captured me for some reason. I am guessing it will do about a 6.2

I love this photo but the letter C on the tie ruins it for me.
