The post processing of the second image really adds a lot of interest and emotion to the shot. It would be cool and maybe add yet another dimension if you could bring the purple out on the pansies only. But as is, the second image tells your story.

This is shot makes me think of summer as a teenager - like a period trapped in time. The fact that the park is empty makes this picture seem almost otherworldly.

Good catch, Dave.
