the texture in the sky is good as always, and the poles in the distance give it a much better sense of depth than it would have it they weren't there. the hat also adds a lot of character to the silhouette.
as for the flood, I hadn't even heard of that filter...
Hey! Was worried, hadn't seen a submission from you in a while!
This is great, one of your better pieces in my opinion. It's quite an interesting scene that you've created, allowing the viewer to open up their imagination and create a backstory / scenario for the shot. You seem to have a thing for umbrellas, and with the water of course it works well here
And god, no problems with the floodfilter - when it's used correctly I'm A OK. A very tasteful manip - refreshing even after browsing some of the galleries here!
Thanks for sharing,
