Last of the foggy cow pasture that I'll share :)

A more gentle processing that hopefully gives you an idea of the variety of colors resulting from direct sun, shade, thin and thick fog - some sharply edged, some barely there. A fascinating place to be during the five or ten minutes this occurs!

Both enjoyable images Linda with the first winning out for me, maybe because of more contrast and wider color pallet.

Thanks so much for taking the time to describe your preference, Frank. Always helpful and interesting to know the why. I try to do same but sometimes can't connect that part of the brain :)

Both images are a pleasure to view, Linda. Both would be excellent choices for B&W, IMO !!! Fog always gives off a dramatic scene, very nice captures indeed.

So glad you enjoyed, Dave. I have only attempted one b&w conversion of this series, so far, as the color choices are still enthralling me, lol. But I will put your suggestion on my to-do list. Thank you!

I really love that first one, and for the reasons Frank mentioned. I like the second, but possibly because of its overall dun color, if I didn't know it was fog I might mistake it for dust. The first there is no question it's fog; the second it could be something else, and I think it's the uniformity of a kind of dusty color.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thank you, Chuck! Great point about #2 looking similar to dust. And that makes me think "smoke" too - ha, don't need that back after the summer we had! I appreciate your time very much.

I love the layered effect the fog gives to the landscape. #1 is my favorite. that solitary heffer in the forefront really sets the scene for me. I definitely appreciate the colors running through this.

The second one, for some reason, doesn't hold the same impact for me. I'm not entirely sure why since it too is a strong quality image. Chalk it up to subjective preference I suppose.

Nicely captured.

If we're choosing I vote for the first, it's that beautiful triad of yellow, pink, and blue that really gets me. The composition only makes it better!

Is this the same morning as the others? I assume later in the morning. Beautiful! S-
