    Wilson Bridge to be exact. Photographed this morning at 7:30 am. I enjoy the water and fog. Somehow it only seems close to good. Let me know.

    that is amazing, it looks like something you would see as a poster, and I would love to hang a huge version of it on my wall. Now, having said that I must say that even in my landscapes, I prefer to have more of a subject in my photos, obviously just my opinion though

    Thanks!!! I know what you mean by "lack of subject". I think that is why it is only close to good. A re shoot is definitely in order.

    I'll take a wow! Thank you!!! It is interesting how titles can change an image. That is a whole other story. I have been trying to photograph water for weeks and I have been failing miserably. This may be as good as it gets. I am starting to get frustrated. A waterfall would come in handy. Need less to say; things are a little frozen at this point.

    All that fog doesnt do it for me. Theres no subject to me. I can see a beautiful picture, but without that distracting fog. It clouds up the picture and kinda turns me off.

    i really like the fog actually, it adds something to the image. as i said earlier this would be a good large wall piece. it would be a good modest piece

    A double Post!!! I am very proud!!! The fog works for me as well. It is why I get up at 6am as opposed to 7am.

    Will, the fog adds what? Please explain.

    Craig don't think I'm bashing you :) I could see this photo as a huge poster on my wall also. The fog kinda blocks the viewer to see what is going on, your left wonding what is missing. I feel there isnt a real clear subject. Theres alot of fog here... Less is more sometimes...

    Thanks for your concern MostlyDigital!!! Generally speaking; I love all comments good bad or indifferent. All people know that it is OK to speak their peace.

    Anyway; that fog is covering up something. That is why I like it. I think it is the only thing saving the photo. The comments are helping. I am convinced that I will get the coolest "water" photo in the weeks (or years) to come!!!

    I think the fog adds interest to something that would otherwise be kind of empty, if that makes sense... it adds diagonals and illusion. I think its beautiful... i like how it's all different shades of blue

    Are you really on a bridge when you took that photo? Whoa!~ HahA!~

    Anyway, the fog was okay for me.... would like to see how the River meanders towards the end (top of picture) which, for now was hampered due to the fog.

    Can't wait for your reshoot!~ PeaCe!~
