Sharp Edge

I did this one last year but was never entirely happy with it. I’ve recently modified the cloud, and added some cloud shadow.
This one has definitely been a learning piece.
Any comments are appreciated. Thanks for looking Arnie

Re: Sharp Edge

Interesting scene that has a hint of danger and struggle to it, and great job on the people.

The cold lake in the background bugs me a bit... Maybe it's just the obvious contrast with the snow, or its sharp edges, but it feels a bit too prominent and distracts me from the hikers and their story.

Re: Sharp Edge

I suppose you could make it pop a bit more with some blue from the sky reflecting on the snow...just a guess though.

Re: Sharp Edge

It sure feels cold and it has a sense of drama.

I would like to see some blue in the snow and the back of the lake looks like it is rising upwards.

Re: Sharp Edge

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.
I have reworked the water to make it less prominant and stop it going uphill.
Have probably got a bit carried away with adding blue - there was too much yellow before. Thanks Arnie.
