This image was shot in the spring of 2021, deep into the big UK COVID pandemic lock down.
The Photographers View
I love the ‘lock down’ social distancing in this scene. The sky was really bland so I used the Sky Replacement tool in Photoshop and created this moody but interesting sky.
Whilst mostly monochromatic, the little splashes of colour and reds and blues in the foliage add more interest.
The diagonals from the main line of people from bottom right to mid left and from the middle back to the right make the image more dynamic. This helps to add a sense of movement within the groups of people even though they are ‘frozen’ in the scene 🙂
