Alt title: The path of life is better with company

My kids at a state game lands hunting area. i was geocaching in the area the week before and this long straight trail stuck in my mind. Different clothing might have worked, but it was in the mid 30s and they wouldn't take their coats off. the sky was beautiful, but i had to crop it out so emphasize the people. tried shots with only one fo them, but this looked cozier.

Shot in RAW, sat and hue adj, convert, curves, USM crop, and some hue desat on the blue and cyan channels to reduce the brightness of their coats.

Lens at 64MM

Letting the children walk further down the path would help this photograph

Nice photo, good light well focused. Layout from the Sky to the ground gives this a poster feel. If this was a one time shoot very nice.

Nice idea, color, composition, and feeling. Brush in left foreground is too close, too much, and too distracting, cropping some of it out would be better.

Nice photo. I would suggest maybe take this shot earlier in the day and i reckon it would look great in Black and White.

I just find the branches too busy and distracting...perhaps cropping a bit of the left would have fixed this and put the kids on the third
