Last Saturday I took a walk around Park La Fontaine. With clear blue skies following the previous days snowstorm, the park was looking particularly beautiful. There were quite a few skaters on the lake which had been cleared and groomed following the snowfall and although I didn’t go skating myself, the ice looked in pretty good condition.
My favorite picture from the few I took was without doubt the first in the series below of a couple with baby in stroller passing by a group of kids taking a break on one of the benches in the middle of the lake. As I mentioned, it was a pretty bright day and so I decided to go for a high contrast and blow out some of the highlights to bring more attention to the skaters.
This next image was again processed using Topaz Labs B&W Effects but with this one I decided to process with a painted look and feel.
