I don't shoot much lately....

The Arxangelskoe palace in the sunshine, while a storm is forming in the background. Because of the cold all the statues are covered up.
Pretty big estate with many buildings and a pretty, old, small orthodox church. Last owned before 1917 by the Yusupov family (the ones who were richer than the tsar himself and involved in the Rasputin murder). There is a painting by Francois Flameng of Zinaida Yusupova (in the Hermitage) where you can see this palace in the background.
In the winter you sometimes can do sleigh rides and things like that in the park. Nice place to escape the pressure of Moscow itself.

Edited on a laptop with a glossy screen, factory default settings. First try on this one.

Another special time in Moscow....

Interesting subject, but the photo lacks a sense of depth imo. Would be interesting to see some more dynamic leading lines

I like the dark moody sky however the trees are quite underexposed. You could dodge them to brighten them up under this ruleset.

I like the colors and the contrast between the bright foreground and the dark sky.

Nice contrast. Maybe you could just have cropped out a small part on the left side. There appears to be three persons which I find a little distracting.
