A sweet image of two brothers/ friends. I like that they are walking away from us down the path - their anonymity makes the image more universal in appeal/ story. The framing of the foliage on fully three sides really makes the forest / park seem to envelop them. The path, and the way it goes from widest at the lower edge of the frame, to narrow and disappearing around a corner further back, is inviting. I find that bird feeder (assuming that's what it is) at top right distracting and would clone it out in a non-challenge-entry version of the image. Likewise the slightly-too-strong vertical of dried branch to the right of the boys.

Great idea. Whilst the shallow depth of field creats the impression of fading into the unknown, I find it slightly distracting on the bushes in the background

Man - I am a sucker for these type shots. Excellent image. Glad the colors arent oversaturated. Has a cool afternoon feel to it. Great DOF as well. I hope this is scoring well for you. Bumping up to 9.

Very nice image, great composition and colors. I think it would be even better if taken with a wider angle lens, I suspect you used 35mm or larger here. I think a shorter focal lenght would have increased the perspective and would have added drama by making the roal appear much longer and the end of the road much further away.

This is one of those photos that warms the heart (being a dad anyway). Well captured in all of the technical details and composition. The 'S' is a tad short (funny how the eyes complete what's not there) but I'm not holding that against you (much) - gave this an 8 initially and coming back around for comments.
