They seem to be as interested in you as you are in them. Maybe a tad brighter?

I wanted to comment on this during the challenge - but I never seem to be able to comment on ANY during a free study lol. I gave this a 7. I loved the perspective and how they are both just kind of curiously looking at the camera (and not you!) Is this during one of your late night photo shoots in a bar? lol Looking forward to seeing what kind of quirky cultural shots you get in your new home town.

Not a beer in sight. No wonder they are so serious... great photo, BTW.

Hey Panos, great shot! I gave this an 8 during voting. I love the leading lines drawing attention in and then the mindless stares..This really tells a story to me.

Would be a bit more dramatic with some more contrast and a bit of oversharpening.

They weren't going to lose this time. For years they'd come into this little dive. The food was good, the service better, but the reason for their faithful patronage was simple, the staring contest with the shop's mascot, Henry, a box of Cereal with a frog painted on the side.

Moments, later, cursing but laughing, the men congratulated Henry on yet another win. They'd get that frog one day!

oh, SO nice--unique POV, luminous exposure, and the eye contact with both people just makes this image--almost like you were caught in the act of sneaking the shot! well done! 8

I'm giving this a 5 rather than a 6 because of the perspective, it's like the camera is sitting on the bar rather than being held and I'd rather see the subjects at eye-level. Really like the shot though, a lot of character.
