It's really a wonderful work!

I like how it looks the shadows and the lights! The details on the reflection on the water!

I like that the technique have presence on your piece. The texture and the traces you did on it make it most beautiful.

Also, the composition of your work is nice too, having focus on the persons that are walking with the umbrella to the road that we can't see were it goes, but it not looks cutted.

Sorry for my English, I tried to do my best with this critic. Nice job, really! Congratulations!

Probably the best technique I've ever seen with a palette knife. Wow. Great colors, especially the puddle. I could get lost in the texture of the leaves for hours. :)

I think the best part of the painting is the style you use, I can't get over the technique. Each smear of paint is so well defined on its own, but they all blend into a cohesive picture. I'm not great at critiquing, and I don't know much about painting, so i'll lave the constructive criticism to the experts, I can't pick out much that i'd change.

Beautiful colours and everything. :) But I miss some rain since they are under an umbrella. <.< Or maybe they haven't realized that the rain stopped because they are too in love!

This painting is really beautiful and has a warm atmosphere.
The reflection on the street is great as well. I have only one question... I asume, that it still rains due to the umbrella of the woman, but the picture doesn't really show any signs of rain expect the umbrella. So my question is, was it your intention that it still rains, or not?
