'An Old Place With a Calm Soul'
This romantic scene caught my eye when walking one of the oldest and largest parks in Europe. Yes, we have that one right here. The name is Maksimir and it was founded already in 1787. It has several lakes and spacious old woods. It is always a pleasure to walk here, regardless of the season or the mood one is in. The place has a magic touch of repairing a bad mood and enhancing a good one. You are free to imagine yourself sitting on that bench and observing a local family of ducks. :)
I used an interesting colour scheme to further the impression and contribute to the already existing sad but still romantic feeling. Notice the touches of green and purple which define most of the colour scheme and beautifully work together with the dark areas. The tree which is completely closing the right side creates a bit of mystery as if there is a secret that may, or may not be revealed. Its curves are just too beautiful not to mention. I deliberately left some space to the left of the tree on the left side. If you try to imagine the photograph without that space, you might notice that the overall feeling changes.
Not sure if you can notice a few pieces of bread sitting on the gently frozen surface. Some kind soul left these for the ducks, knowing it is winter and they're hungry. If you've noticed that on the first sight, your attention is absolute. If you didn't, worry not, it's really not that easy. :) If you ask me about that stone cube in the middle, I'll be honest up front and tell you that I have no clue. It does look good, pushes the mystery forward, therefore I decided to leave it as a part of the composition.
Use your imagination, fill it with good thoughts and take a walk through the park. If you ever get a chance, visit the place in person. It is very soothing and calm this time of year.
