    Wow, Jon, the colors of those chairs do pop! You enhanced/changed them in you PP I think as the shadows also have a color cast or is that real due to the snow

    It is a nice composition but too bad about the trellis in the background...

    The colours certainly stand out against the snow. Have you enhanced the saturation, Jon? I think I would add a gaussian blur to the background to foucs the viewer's eyes on the chairs

    Shane, Carol & Greg, thanks for your comments. I cannot remember if I increased the saturation on this or not, but I will tell you that this is an accurate depiction of the colors of these chairs. You can even see them on Google Maps

    A re-shoot at night with a single flash firing straight down into the fire pit might create a cool effect. But I like the summer/winter mashup. Pretty cool.

    Like the wild colors Jon Could suggest also to isolate one chair ... wildest your choice ... and have just snow and chair. If you have to work on the chair try doing so in curves with an adjustment layer, invert mask and paint effect on chair. Will leave the snow as is.

    It is also helpful if you could get some contrast/texture in the snow !!!
