Father and son, family reunion, Cape Cod.

Topaz Adjust, shadow/highlight. Extremely contrasty lighting, very difficult processing, about as natural as I could make it look.

I think given the difficult lighting, if you converted it to BW, it would work a lot better. JMO, of course.

I still stand by the "very fun" aspect of it. :-) And yes, good processing for what looks like rather nasty light to shoot in. More about the meaning than the technicals in any case.

Father and son? I can't tell the relationship, but it's a great shot. I wish the younger one's eyes were open.

Very fun - makes me smile! (Color tones are a bit off on the older gentleman's arms and the shaded side of his face - I suspect perhaps the use of shadows/highlights or something similar which often messes with color tones.)
