Attired Groomsman

Uploaded: March 24, 2006


After a long night as a groomsman for my friend's wedding, I threw my tux on the chair. I thought the colors and the way it landed looked interesting...
I had just enough energy to do a little post-arrangement, and get a few shots. Later, I added some PSE4 blur and selective focus touches.
