    You guys are awesome man. I wanna take you guys all out to lunch and buy you all new cameras of your choice. Unfortunately, the funds aren't there for that, but if ever they come my way I'll look you guys up.

    To answer some questions....
    This photo uses only one exposure. I'm not into HDR stuff. Each image was exposed in bridge at +0.10

    Each person in this photo is in fact me, myself, and I.

    To answer Georges question...
    I do these photos for my own purposes. I've never attended a photo class, or seminar or anything of the like. I've just always played with cameras and photo shop. I've found that if you play with anything long enough, you're gonna figure it out. It's been the same for music with me, I play many instruments and have taught myself how to play each one of them by simply playing around with it.

    Now,
    I'm one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. And I worry that when people ask me how I process, and I don't tell them, they get the wrong impression about me. I sort of safeguard my techniques because the things I like to do with my photos are not often replicated. Of course, there are many guys and girls out there that process the way I do, but they are few and far between. We're a rare breed.
    Keep in mind however, that as we can do things that you can not, you too can do things that we can't. Want proof? Ask me to upload a decent landscape shot. Prepare to be let down in a big way. Because it won't happen. I may upload a landscape shot, but it won't be any good.
    Have you ever had an outstanding meal, asked for the recipe and been told "it's a secret"? It's sorta the same thing. I'm more then happy to share stuff with you guys, and even aspects of my post work, but to give it all away would just be foolish.

    I hope you guys understand that I'm not trying to be a jerk. I just want to stay sharp. I've put so much time into all of this is all.

    Again guys,
    To put so much time and effort into a photo and have it so well received feels better then I could ever tell any single one of you. I thank you all so much for your interest and kind words.

    Much :heart:,

    -Hardy

    I was going to say those three guys did all look really similar. Love the shot, commercial quality stuff, maybe a college will buy it off you and then you can take us all out to lunch and buy us those new cameras?:D
