Close to Henk`s Success , I had this just to elaborate on the faces...One thing we noticed all along was the ever willingness of these chaps trying their best to be in all the frames irrespective of how uncomfortable was it for himself & the other person!...
For this was a fun experience for these Lorry drivers, which otherwise would have been a dull day in multitude of lorry life all along Salem district. Incidently, salem district is the Lorry capital of South India & India has a whole. Lorries from Salem & Namakkal are plying all around India at any given time.
Right next to them Lord Murgan, the Tamil God is also sharing the space!

I like your dual portrait of these two men. The diagonal composition works well and your POV is very interesting.

A funny but pleasant tilt to enhance this duo, they enjoyed it even more then you ... bending maybe having a neck-pain afterwards :)). Contrast is high by the sunny moment but perfectly managed getting all texture out, maybe a slight higlight/shadow local could push up the second man even more visible but then for sure wit a local grain removal.
Main radiating strenght out of this shot for sure, all enjoyed it and that is so clearly readable here !

The tilt is working well here and I like the expressions of the two truck drivers who seem to have a lot of fun :) One is looking directly at you, while the other one is more shy and looking down. Colors are well rendered and the framing well seen. It goes to my theme 'Smiles of India'.

This is a very friendly shot, 2 smiling faces emerging from the window of an interesting truck, their faces so close to Lord Murugan ! Great photo...

I was going through your gallery, full of interesting photos, and I got stuck here because one of these guys looks exactly like a colleague of mine in Bangalore...
apart from that, I like this photo because it's an unusual double portrait - not only the POV, but the fact that only one of the guys is looking at you (while the other is closing his eyes while laughing) makes this photo different and interesting.
