    Foggy night

    Hey all,

    So it was a very foggy night this evening, so I was glad to have had my camera with me when I was on my way home from work.

    Foggy night

    CC always welcome,

    Jason

    Great photo, good choice for b/w. Pity of the dead branches on the foreground. An idea in PP to clone them away or to make a new one an break them away? For the rest, well done!

    Thanks. I decided to use the sticks as a way to distract the viewer from looking at the gangway leading onto the ferry. I wanted to get a look that the ferry had sunk just off shore rather than sunk at its dock. I think that the sticks do somewhat achieve that.

    B/W is good choice. It strenghtens the essence of the oldish ferry and smoggy athmosphere.

    So I decided to give removing the branches from the photo. This was the result.

    Hi Jason,
    the 2nd version is much better IMO. You have captured the atmosphere very well.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers

    Did you increase the vignette? It looks that way to me. I think that takes away a little bit of the foggy atmosphere. I do agree it's much better with the sticks removed.

    +1 for the pruning, err, cloning, I think Didace has a point about the vignette too.

    Never-the-less, the second is a lovely shot and think the pier enhances the image because the realisation that it's not going anywhere sorta crreeps up on you after the initial assessment of what the shot is of.

    I'm also glad you had the camera with you

    I like the 2nd one, too. The reflections on the water look very nice. This is a fine subject for B&W. Well done.

    Thanks everyone that responded.

    Didace, yes I did add the vignette in post processing. Perhaps a bit too much but I don't find it terribly bothersome.

    Thanks again everyone for the constructive feedback.
