Skating on thin ice

By TrevBatWCC    
Skating seems very popular around Christmas time, and many city centres have these skating rinks over the Christmas period, like here in Markt, Bruges. Not something I could do, I could never stay on my feet with roller skates, so no hope with ice skates. Think I could cope with those things the kids are riding around on in the lead image though! The chap in the light blue jacket in the centre of V1 was fair whizzing around the rink.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 5 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile
