Waiting Patiently

Waiting Patiently was taken in an old-fashioned seaside café in Sea Palling.  It was December and very cold, and we'd gone inside to grab a mug of hot tea and a bacon butty.  I was confronted with mother and son eating in glum silence opposite each other, with an extremely expectant Lakeland Terrier looking on.  I had one chance to take the picture, so it was a question of very rapidly choosing some camera settings and firing the shutter before they realised what was happening.

This is the original image, straight from the camera.  It was processed in a mixture of Photoshop (a bit of cropping and cloning in the background) and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.  Canon 5DmkII, 17-40/4L, 1/25s @ f/5.6, ISO1600.
