Default Bottom Gate

I live most of my time now in Zambales, Philippines, although home for a short time in Aussie land.
My nephew's children were standing at the gate looking down the street and I raced inside to take the pic. Only to be disappointed as the sky was gray and so was everything else.
Needless to say I put another sky in and coloured the gray sand.
I realize some might be offended by this pic, but I'm not. I think it is enchanting. A full size pic of this was given to grateful parents.
Kind Regards:

It kinda works! Looks like the kids are wondering what bizarre trick mother nature is sending their way...

Thx Wolfd:
You can take the most beautiful picture, but it's always the personal ones that stand out in memory.

First of all I think anybody who's offended by this image should relax and find something worth getting their shorts in a knot about. I think it's sweet and innocent and charming.

I think, though, that what you have now is an OK picture of a sunset with a couple of kids in it instead of a really lovely picture of a couple of kids. If it were mine I'd probably - no, almost certainly - leave the sky alone, convert to B&W and make the kids the center of attention.

While I find the BW version to be nice, I prefer the mood imparted by the colorful sky in the color image.

Same here. I like the larger crop with the sky. The tighter crop almost makes it look like a creeper shot rather than what is originally was...a charming look at childhood in an interesting location.
