Autumn Evening

This one is an interesting one.
I was trying to do something special with the lighting.. and i came up with this first one.




But I didn't like it all that much.
So... I took the original flash piece, and spent two minutes doing something else, and this next one came out..which I like much more.





It's funny how so often, the simpler versions are the best!

Tip of the day...keep it simple!

Great! I'll keep your advice in mind.

I agree that often times we over think what we're doing and miss the point.

I liked the first one, and then I looked at the second on and wow, yes, the second one rules!

maybe I'm the only one, but I have to admit that I like the first version better. Even though I like the second one too. But the first one shows a whole scene and looks pretty vivid (I almost can smell the atmosphere), while in the second one it seems to be aready dark, and all the people around don't make that much sense anymore.

I guess it's a good thing that there are different tastes. and in the ed you'll have to come up with what you like best. :)

and sorry for my english, but I felt that I have to state a reason for my choice.

Pascal, your images are an utter delight. Oh, and I believe both pictures are quite beautiful in their own unique ways.

I have to say Pascal, I actually like the first one... the lighting really reminds me of a specific type of night, and I love that the cafe is named after Lily ^_^

This is all great feedback guys!
And, yes, I have to admit that, after a few days, when I look back on them both.. they do work as well one as the other.. they just tell different stories!
I guess I'm still learning!

The white skin tones are a nice touch. I bet this is a popular piece with the Twilight crowd.
