incredibly soft light and painterly, pastel colors attract attention even in the main gallery. it is useless to say how the walking couple with their doggie enhances the composition. very pleasant to look at.

J'aime beaucoup la composition de cette image. Le point de vue est parfait pour nous montrer oł le couple au chien se dirige, ce qui est parfait. Les couleurs sont belles sous ce ciel expressif.
