Eerie and moody with your great shadow work and subdued lighting. Exceptional.

Thanks Bruce this was an attempt to have less sugary , more subtle colours, with I think a pleasing bouncy composition.

Intriguing...I want to wander deeper for a look in the shadows.

Very evocative. These look like the ice skating ponds of my childhood.

Simon Jones said...

Thanks Linny, yes it does have a whimsical dreamlike quality.

Simon Jones said...

Many thanks for your comment Leslie.

Nice composition Simon with dramatic contrasts and subtleties(?spelling?)It's a moody with good vibes.
