This has a lovely HDR feel to it. I love that you've included the painter, as this adds so much to the image. The colours are beautiful. The only thing I would suggest is cloning out the stains on the middle of the footpath, as I find them a little distracting. A great image.   Posted: 02/07/2019 18:37:41

Very nice image. I love the colors and the storytelling aspect. Good composition and great contrast. Like Toni said, I would clon out the stains. I would try cloning out the people to the right of artist's arm.   Posted: 02/08/2019 16:41:24

Great story telling image! In my opinion, I find it a bit crunchy and would back down on the sharpening ( just a tad) after cleaning up the stains on the pavement. Good job.   Posted: 02/09/2019 21:27:38

I like the flow to this image. The main story being the artist and his painting, there are other artists working, a photographer and various groups socialising, al adding to the feel of the park. I'm not sure whether I would clone out the stains or not.   Posted: 02/19/2019 10:16:43
