    With the morning fog just lifting on Monday, I took a quick walk down the river to get some shots - this was my 2nd favourite of the set :)

    FWIW: f/8, ISO 64, 1.6 seconds at (equivalent to) 35mm focal length
    Postwork: crop, and a little equalisation on the histogram.

    Hmm, too awful for words? Or just too mundane to attract comment?

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Rather than fog, it just looks overexposed. I find that for fog and mist, metering on the fog, then setting that in manual, then dialing down the EV by a stop or sometimes even two stops, helps it look more natural.

    When in doubt, bracket. ;)

    As you can see from the distant trees, there was only a little of the fog left by this point - just enough to make the distant trees fade a little, which I thought gave a nice feeling of depth to the image.

    You're right, it makes sense to meter on the fog if I want that to be the protagonist of the image. We get plenty of autumn foggy mornings around here, so I'll give that a try soon.
