the banister finally received a painting and the park keeper used a broom to remove the fallen leaves.

After the sun came out on this cold and slightly foggy winter day the young family decided to go on a stroll and gave the kids the treat of doing some icescating.

Hope you like it. :) Please have a look at the full res. (5 years and 2998 days ago)

this has a very strange 60s feel.. I think it's her coat.. I love the work on the "ice"... very different.. It does look like an old time magazine cover.... very good work.. (I'm sure there are some tech things.. but the overall image is very wonderful)

Interesting ideai think to make the light beams stand out you should try darkening the image. Good luck!

I agree with GolemAura about the feel of the shot. It's got a nice "cozy" feel to it and I like it a lot. I don't want to always be the one pointing out technical issues but I think it's important to get critiques to keep growing as an artist. The kids in the back are pretty spot on. The couple on the bridge feels a bit out of place. Part of it is the colors are a little too saturated compared to the rest of the shot and also with that strong back lighting you should be seeing a lot of white light wrapping around their edges. Still, a beautiful image and a high score from me!

thank you all very much for your comments.

@ nudanke: Technical input is always welcome, only that way I can improve my work, thank you very. I played with colors, balance but didn't think of the saturation. I adjusted the image and I like it better now, I hope I didn't take it down too much.

As to the white shine around the people I'm not sure I can agree. The light is bright but also pale, as in winter. It throws shadows, but not hard ones. I live in Switzerland where we have moods like that in winter, I never saw a white shine around people in light like that. What do you think?

I really like the skaters on the ice... excellent work!

The people on the bridge are looking better now so I think playing with the saturation helped a lot. You may be right about the light wrapping. It seems that you have bit more experience with that type of lighting than I do so go with what you feel is best.

This is great work! Love the nuances of this and the changes to the bridge itself! Only thing I suggest is that the banister seems almost too stark and bright. Perhaps darken the further points from the couple...back and add some variances in tone to the banister. This might help it look a bit more natural. Really nice job, love the atmosphere you've created with this!

EDIT: Railing looks gooood!

Wow! Very nice job on the kids' reflections and the adults' shadows! I would add an animal to the picture Good Luck

Good job! I especially like the kids on the ice and that you made the scating traces. These small things make an image real. Good luck!
