These Lutenists were standing at the exist of a yew hedge maze at Hever Castle where I visited towards the end of last year with a few friends.

The depth of field in the shot comes straight out of camera; I took the image with the Sony NEX-7 and at 210mm on their 55-210mm glass. I really like the sudden drop off you see here into the foreground, and the beautiful bokeh in the background.

For editing I added a touch of sharpening, and then a vintage cool blue type of filter in OnOne, and that was it.

A nice simple image from a nice simple guy.
