    Snow day 2 ( edited)

    Having listened to all of your comments I had another go at editing 'snow day'

    Is this an improvement or does including the sky diminish the subjects too much?

    Yes ............ in my 'umble opinion.

    Much prefer the original, but, as I think someone said in that thread, I wonder about reducing the blur up in the top left.

    But I do think that original has much more mood and atmosphere and is much more 'you'.

    I love the dull contrast in the first soooooo much better.

    Yep. Fell overnight. Not much. But starting to freeze again now that evening is arriving.

    The revision lacks the creativity of the first one. For whatever reason, I'm not drawn to the person on the right.

    Perhaps most important: The more I look at the original, the more I like it (and I liked it a lot the first time I saw it). The more I look at the revision, the less I like it.

    It becomes a different scene now, Sharon. Try a little crop from the bottom and left side to better balance the sky.
