Default Walk in the Park - Shanghai

A walk in the huge Jin Xiu Park, Minhang, Shanghai, one Sunday a few weeks ago. Every now and then you come across Wedding shooters and their wards too. I've tried to apply a few different processing processes to these .... the first is Lomo. Whether you like them or not all comments are welcome. Thanks !

Sure looks wet out there. The mother in the last one looks worried about things. The bride is pretty. My favorite is the bicycle, though the second one comes close. I'm not that crazy about the processing of the first one, and I'm not quite sure why - perhaps the sky and hills beyond are a bit too saturated? The boats look good and I like the subject matter. I really like the series.

A very nice series, of a part of the world I've never seen. But despite that, it's wonderful how we can relate to the same things. The joy of a newly married couple, and the concern of a young mother are universal, no matter where you are in the world. I agree with Harriet's comment on #1 -- I love the composition and subject, but on my monitor, the colors are a bit too saturated and vivid.

Thank you Harriet - exactly the type of feedback I was looking for.

Thank you Mtnman, great comments. I think after all the feedback I might try to pull back the saturation on the Lomo effect shot, I do like it and thought it a bit of fun to try something different !

I also like the series. It's not the typical tourist shots, but real people doing real things with real expressions. Well done. Lomo is kind of cool.

Will agree that the lomo effect does not work for me - maybe it's the odd look to the sky...
But the rest are wonderful - such well-captured images of "a little slice" in each life...
