I took a walk in the park and I took this photograph without thinking that look like a painting. It is when I made a post processing that I saw that this photograph would be good in the challenge

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An appealing image that meets the challenge.

I love the high contrast you have here, some lovely whites, even though I think you have probably taken them a little too far there is a significant loss of detail but this, I think, is one of those rare occasions where it works to your advantage. I particularly love the foreground tree with its stark contrasts and the hint of red leaves against the near mono totality of the rest of the image.

Your composition is good with the foreground tree on the left and the back of the benches breaking up the whites. The DOF is also appropriate, there is no obvious evidence of camera shake from the slow shutter speed but there is a uniform softness that adds to the overall appeal.

I like everything you've done here, its an excellent submission, well done Marcel, Sid

I like the narrow band of color
