Taken a few weeks ago at the Botanic gardens complex in Belfast. It was a beautiful day, lots of people out walking and lying about. This shot really caught my eye. Not an every day sight. Barbacueing in the middle of a park garden is so unusual.Their poor lungs, must be as bad as smoking cigarettes..........Smile.Hope you like it, all comments and votes most welcome.

Must be students - in which case the inhalation rate may be unusually low.

Wow, you are well on your way to securing another user award with this picture. Despite its popularity there are a couple of minor things that would improve it.

There is a lot of grass in the foreground, you could crop about half of it out to concentrate more on the students and their BBQ.

Also, it's a contrasty scene, therefore some of your shadow areas are actually black. Using the shadow/highlight tool can add some more detail back into your darker areas.

Click: Vote number 28!

Regards,

Andrew.
