    I took a picture for my grandmother while we were up in canada visiting. It's her three sons :)

    I would like to frame it and give it to her for christmas. The photo isn't a very good one lol it was taken in a hurry in a bar lol. is there anyway someone could do some photo magic to it and make it look a little better? lol thank you in advanced

    I did a few things to it. I could make it even better if I had a higher res one. With smaller res every edit I make is more extreme than usual. :p

    But here you go! I sharpened it some, darkened the background a tad and boosted the colour and clarity.

    ETA: Wow... Chaz is resampling the image on my screen. View the image outside of Chaz for best effect.

    Originals always help.

    They look kind of 'fake' due to the lighting. Perhaps they could be cut out and moved to a different background? I don't have time tonight.

    Cropped it, cloned out the TV on top of brother's head and out of the other's ear, sharpened and messed around with exposure, levels...
