Adjusted the severe backlighting with a couple of curves and gave it a bit of coffee-tones, sharpening and an overlaying high passed soft light layer.

I see you have a validation note. Boy, I'd really like to see the explanation for that!

This is a lovely image. It has so much going for it--the expression, the lighting, the way you've pulled the elements together....

Very cool shot, I especially like how the cups lead me right into the eyes of the subject. Very strong composition.

Cool photo. I like the wide angle and composition with the coffee cup, and the tones look nice.

I love this pic. Great perspective, great angle. Color would have destroyed it. B&W was the way to go. One of my favorites. I even love the grain. 10

Nice urban sense. The overblown whites work in this instance. The grain makes it have a nostalgic appeal. 7
