    Fog Hanging Around Town

    There has been a lot of fog around town lately which is a rare treat for the tropics. I got this shot at the golf course using the 100mm macro on tripod, F:28, 4 seconds and 100 ISO. Converted to sepia to add effect. I'm looking at printing it to hang but before I do your C&C would be appreciated.

    Nicely done - frame it. The image might benefit from a small amount of sharpening. I think I would prefer the image slightly less sepia toned (brownish), but that is certainly personal preference and not a technical comment.

    I like this also. Very atmospheric.

    If you used a little less of the gold color in the toning, it would look very similar to an albumen print made in the 19th century.

    Definately print and hang - My personal preference would also be a little less of the gold colour but its all a matter of taste

    I won't disagree, but ......... before you do, does it need a slight counter-clockwise rotation? Everything feels to me that it's leaning to the right a bit. Maybe it's just an optical illusion or the fact that I'm just in from work and haven't had a drink yet!

    I had the sense that it leans a little to the right when I first saw it earlier today. I wanted to review it a second time much later before commenting. Now that I've seen it a second time, it still leans a little to the right for me.

    I think the ground is sloped, because the bottom branch of the tree is level with the top of my screen when I scroll it. Which do you go with =--uneven ground or level branch?

    Re: Fog Hanging Around Town

    Thank you all for your feedback, I have made a few adjustments, please let me know your thoughts. The tree in the foreground is sitting a little higher on the left hand side roots so it is hard to gauge the level, but the 2nd and 3rd trees are a better indication. However if the perception is still that it is sloping then let me know as I do not want it to look of balance

    It's a very subtle shift, but I think it makes a significant, positive, difference. Also, there is a better clarity of light in this second one. A result of that is that you've got more texture into the bark of the trees, which is also a good thing in my opinion. Again, it's subtle, but it's effective.

    Now print it.

    Lovely photo! So very un-tropics! Like the improvements you've made also.
    We had fog here this morning too... also quite rare... and I was peeved at myself for sleeping in and missing sunrise with it, but I've been struggling with an ear infection so sleep was probably a good choice.
    Hoping I might get a repeat tomorrow morning, but somehow I doubt it.
    Glad you made good of the scarce opportunity!

    Thanks Trace, it may be another year before I get another foggy day, lets hope not.
