Mein Gott in Himmel! Mon Dieu!
From your original, I got exactly the same result in four moves in PhotoShop.
1: Image
2: Mode
3: Grayscale
4: Contrast slide.

Didn't even have to sharpen.
Looks exactly the same as yours.

Nice scene and composition but why so much work?

Bonjour Romain,

Je t'envie énormément. Si Paris me manque, c'est parce que je m'imagine justement faire ce genre de balades sous la neige et avoir l'occasion de faire ce genre de photos.
La tienne est superbe:j'adore ton travail sur l'image, cette chaise seule, et ce couple qui s'en va au loin, ces arbres affrontant l'hiver et cette impression d'abandon: ce lieu plein de vie l'été qui se métamorphose aux jours plus rudes.
Spendide!

Marc.

To put a small chair like this in teh foreground sounds a bit strange, but you managed to create a very good effect here, adding the couple in the background (making it a good composition) and the colours chosen. Nice work!

Well ...
I liked the two versions just because (in my opinion, there´s no much difference betwen then...But I liked the work you had. :) to try to compose the final photo.
You got a very different effect here and it works well.
well done.

Salut Romain,

J'aime bien cette composition hivernale avec cette chaise seule et le couple qui s'éloigne ne pouvant s'y assoir pour admirer le paysage. Très bien réussi.
Luc

It's so moody. Looks like some retro photo of our grandpas...

Salut Romain,
Une composition impeccable avec le titre qui va bien, et un « special bonus » pour le post-traitement accompagné de sa recette :)
Bravo, c'est du très bon boulot pour un très joli résultat !
Martine

Un bel exemple de composition dynamique. Une superbe image, un excellent traitement monochromatique. Bravo!

Absolutely beautiful shot Romain. Well composed, great mood and heroic PP work...
Tomasz

? like your shot a lot. Your PP work is so detailed and its very well fits to your composition. It has the mood. Very well..
Elif
