Another try at a sporting scene that leans more on what the day feels like, and plays down the actors and action.
I asked my daughter, Daisy, if this scene should have falling snow (the last thing added to a winter scene) and she said no. I'm still undecided.

The picture here is poor - Shot it lit by a drawing lamp with my phone and the trees reflection in the water shows too light. In fact it's almost as dark as the trees above. But you get the idea.

I think Daisy is right. You have shadows, so you wouldn't also have snow. kdn
