I like the feeling this photo conveys: brotherly love. As for improvement; maybe a smidge more contrast, and it's cropped a bit too tight left & right for my taste. A quarter inch more picture on either side feels about right. All in all, a good picture.

Thanks.  They are my dad and his brother, my uncle Horace.  They were (at one time) down-home country--and they were always as about as authentic as you could get, not a false bone in either one of them.  By the time this picture was made, they lived in the suburbs. 

 

Horace would not live too long after this shot was made.  My father, the older of the two, would make it twenty more years.
