Strong composition. Love what the head on light does. F828 noise is what made me migrate to Canon. Very good work!

I liked this picture because of the light on the guys head. I also liked the milk and cereal, but maybe concentrating more on the milk and cereal would have been better?

Nice work. Did you use a star filter? A little grainy, maybe picture cooler or something to clear that up. Good job though. 7

Really nice! Great tones, textures, nice composition, warmth and personality. Just wish the green glo around right guy's head could have been removed, maybe for a print, :) 9

This is clever and fun, but the noise is a bit bothersome.

something about this picture feels fake to me.

I think your title lends to the image itself. I'm not into technical critiques, but I like this shot.

Very good candid shot!

Would have been better without the Nutri-Grain box, as it distracts one from the milk. Maybe if he could have been holding a glass of milk instead

White balance needs adjusting and there is a lot of noise in this pic. 5

i dig this a lot. especially the fact that you found a cool location to take a mundane picture in. nice job

The man on the left looks scared... whether it be because of the other man in the photo, the Nutri-Grain and Milk or just because he was posing for the camera...

awesome photo. I really like the lighting and composition on this shot. I'll be interested to see what shutter speed you used as it seems to be quite the dark area. A favorite in this challenge.

Really noisy image, neat image would work wonders for this shot!

wheres his bowl? a bowl would have completed this photo. a bit too much yellow on the one man but the lighting is hard to avoid that(try decreasing yellow saturations and increasing lightness of yellow saturations to fix that...yellow milk doesnt look all that appealing). unique take on the challenge. at first thought i thought these were coal miners but the one in the back really isnt dressed for that type of work. this still gets an 8 from me...good luck
