An excellent piece as a gallery opener.

Very nice mood and details. Love the colours too.

I feel that you could perhaps improve the depth contrast between the foreground and midground.

Cheers!

oh retouched? of course it is better now, the two figures on the rhs seem to merged into one here in the revised version. the orange sunset sky at the right is a nice touch to balance the all-too-cold blue color of the whole pic. very good!
