In this case the blurring and black-and-whiting of the original makes it better, in my eyes. This picture, taken maybe 15 years ago or a little longer, seems antique, almost timeless. Of course the tuxes contribute to that.
This is me and my brother David at my cousin Mitchell's wedding, which was formal(!). David looks very handsome here. It's a fairly flattering image of me as well. Note that this picture was taken during the 18 second cultural moment when people wore earcuffs.
