By lollydeakins  
Took this whilst out for a stroll at the weekend. The mother and daughter just crossed over the path as I was trying to capture to sky so it was a complete accident but I quite like the outcome. Cropped and colours tweaked. C & C welcome as always....I did use the flood filter in this image but uploaded this version instead as Im sure everyones sick to death of me and the flood :0)

Isn`t it wonderful when something like this happens Lorraine?.Its a super image and I like the movement in the figures captured here.The sky is beautiful with excellent colours and the whole thing is finished off with the splendid silhouetted trees on both sides.Very nice Lorraine.

I'm very surprised you've not got an RC with this one Lol, but that shows how fickle this site is!!!!

Very nice photo - and the figures turn this from yet another lovely sunset into quite a special photo, particularly if a candid shot. Very evocative. Well done.

This too good not to have an RC Lorraine so I am obliging with a click. The colours are wonderful and I love the mood of the photo.

A real special moment .The figures are perfect . Might trim a slice off the bottom though? Perhaps I'm wrong ?? xx
