Specific Feedback

All feedback welcome

Patrick, it looks like a drone shot of a serpentine walking path. You’ve got the two walkers in perfect position with their long shadows helping to spotlight them. The top part looks like an algae covered lake, while the tree leaves have that “mid-spring” bright green look.

@Mark_Seaver, you are right on everything except that it’s not a lake, but the Tualatin River close to where we live. The river courses slowly through a lot of farmland and is quite muddy.
