My favorite foggy field

Postby LindaShorey » Wed Sep 27, 2017 11:10 pm

Autumn weather offers some fun sunrises from this spot. Any suggestions re composition or edits would be appreciated. Lots of options for color and mood with the raw files :)

Both of these are really beautiful, with rich toning and just enough detail to explain the image, but oh my goodness that wonderful fog! The lone tree is exceptional. I think it could do with la little crop on either or both ends, but it's an excellent image whether cropped or left alone. Well captured but beautifully presented.

I like both treatments Linda, warm or cool. Yes, lots of options and drama with fog.

While both are wonderful images Linda I'm partial to the cattle shot...I think it is outstanding and would without a doubt be big on a wall.

Linda, These are gorgeous and evocative. The second is a strong reminder for me of my years in MT, during the winter, when the steam came off the cattle in the early morning. I can hear them. Thank you; splendid, both of them. Matt

Thank you all for your time and comments! This is the third autumn (out of four) that I've been able to catch similar conditions at these two locations, but the first with a camera other than the sx50. In my several hours of editing yesterday, I found that the ones with cattle are more appealing with softer edits. Though the bridge camera could shoot in raw, the write times were slow (probably partly due to my ignorance about speeds of SD cards). Yesterday with the Olympus I racked up an "impressive" 200 photos before the fog lifted :D

Bob and Piet, thanks! Very pleased you enjoyed. Piet, I love fog more when I know it's going to burn off and be sunny and 70 :)
