Pros: This manipulation has a good compositional placement which follows the rule of 2/3rds. I also feel that having an isolated area of color saturation on the woman carrying the lamp is creating good contrast and thus good focus.
Cons: I feel that could be changed is the background which I feel is too dark which in turn is flattening out your image. I would suggest lighting the background up about 5% and this will create a stronger background. Lastly you have a background and middle ground but no foreground. I would suggest adding something to the foreground like more mushrooms or something in the forest for added depth.

Very lovely work! I love the fog and the contrast of the light. The little boy is very... little compared to the birds and the trees, but I guess he could be a very literally little boy. But great job!
Nicely done! Love the contrast between the small character illuminated by warm light and the cold, dark background. To be honest, I haven't noticed the woman behind a tree at first glance, but now that I see her I think I can safely say that she perfectly fits with the slightly mysterious, quiet atmosphere. Both the concept and its execution are great. Wonderful job!
