When I was out yesterday I noticed these two blokes on a pedestrian walkway above the street. As I took my first shot (which didn't really work out) they noticed me taking a picture of them and turned and did the same. It's not the most artistic thing I've put up recently, but I like the feel of this one. To me, and I can't really find a better way of putting this, it has a 'happy balance': they clearly don't mind being photographed, the composition works, and the colours work well together.

As far as modifying this image goes: it's reasonably faithful to the original scene but I i) increased the contrast (particularly in the mid/high tones of the image), and ii) deepened the colour of the sky (as increasing the contrast faded what little colour there was in the original scene).
