Your image shows the three friends sharing a moment of relaxation in the crisp fall air. Autumn is my favorite time of year to walk the forest and marsh trails . . . no bugs :)
Looks like they're sharing some deep discussion. Nice to see people stop to "smell the roses" instead of go-go-go all the time.
Looks like campaign planning to me, Interesting experiment too, somewhat painterly in the trees.
What a warm shot--the softness works well to help convey the feeling of a long close friendship.
Looks like a deep conversation to me. I'm guessing it's about girls.
I think your processing adds a calm relaxed feel to the scene.
What do you think?
