    Is it not foggy much by you? :scratch:

    Its very pretty. I like how the house and barn seem to sort of just grow out of the fog. Is it on water? The soft colors are pretty, too.

    However, it isn't striking, at least to me, though I can't exactly tell why. Not a whole lotta help, eh? Hmmm. What if the buildings were darker? But that might diminish the fog feel... could it be because it wouldnt be a interesting picture without the fog? I think, maybe the fog is what makes the picture nice, but without it it would just be a house and a barn, probably. That could be it, I spose.

    But all in all, its nice to look at.

    I personally like these fog photos I like how they pop out (the house and barn) also a neat little thing is the sunset. I really find the appreciation for a sunset such as this one.

    Overall I think this is a great photo.

    Now that you mention it, it does look like it's on water. It's actually an abandoned house & bar, and they are in the middle of a freshly cut sod field.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Thanks. I woke up in the morning and saw all the fog, so I grabbed my camera, and took it to work with me hoping to find something interesting. Saw this and stopped and got this shot.

    Nice image. While many would say horizon lines shouldn't be in the middle, I think it works here. I would love to get some fog shots, but I will never be up that early :p

    Thanks for the comment. The original wasn't quite as centered, but my father suggested (Ron Evers), to crop the bottom somewhat, as there was distracting grass growing in the foreground. I agreed, and cropped it out.

    Yeah anything in front of the water there would have taken away from the picture. Good advice on the crop, a nice image overall.
