That is a great image.

Instantly puts the viewer in a relaxed, pleasant space ...

Bravo.

A very nice image, though the sky looks unnaturally dark to me.  Did you bring the levels of the sky down?  I would like to see a version with the sky just a little lighter.

Yes, please.  Otherwise, lovely.

I understand your point of view, but when editing i have tried to put the sky a bit lighter but it didnīt gave me the same feeling. With this picture iīve tried to give a "paint look", thats why i left the sky with those tones. Thanks

Thanks Peter

I like it very much.  It has a surreal quality and an almost celestial feel which I think works quite well.    Well done.

Since the image evokes a dreamy-like scene and invites one to sit down and ponder the scene, I can only ask if may use your bench.

Same for me.

I also would have prefered it with slightly less "local contrast/clarity" but more global contrast with the foreground slightly darker.

Pay attention if you use Lightroom 5 as the clarity slider is "to use with caution".

For me the Clarity of LR4 was more easy to use without drawbacks.

In LR5 I rarely push the slider over 10.

Very good overall composition and nice framing !
