This was taken at the ice rink at Somerset House in London. I took several pics, many with the skaters blurred but didn't like them. In the end I raised the ISO so that I could 'freeze' the skaters and preferred this. The scene reminded me of an old Dutch painting, which was the mood I was looking for when I was processing.

Very nice. I like the sky, especially the way the sun is behind the dome.

I have to agree with Dale.........you couldn't have asked for a much better sky to suit the image, and well controlled from a single raw !!

I don't get the comment about the sky. That was exactly what it looked like!

Karl, I see the same sky as what is on his.... or at least pretty similar. I like the sky to be perfectly honest. Good call on the higher shutter speed.
