My great-uncle's 96th birthday. I wanted some shots of him with his little brother.

How funny! I love the arm wrestling. The looks on their faces are wonderful.

The second shot is truly great. Even at 96 he is quite alive and kicking! How old is his "little brother?"

Really like the second and third. The vignetting in the first doesn't work for me, but that is my only problem with it. At first I thaught you used too fast of a shutter speed but then i saw it was on the left as well.

The second one would look great as a B&W
