    It was an extremely foggy day today, and I got out and tried to take a few shots. It was a lot more difficult than I expected. I would appreciate any feedback you can give me.

    I think you did good. I like the trees in the background of #2. The longer I look at it the more they stand out.

    Those are some really nice looking pictures !
    I love foggy shots. I have the eye of a beginner, but to me they look fantastic, all except the last one. I think that one seems a little busy.

    I'm digging these photos, they have an eerie feel to them, particularly the 1st and 3rd.

    The fourth one, I'd say make it a black and white to see how it looks.

    funny because i thought - they already KIND of look black and white.

    I love these photos a lot. the cemetery one i thought was just ok, but the fence shot is marvelous.

    you might have a competition winner with that one.

    Great shots. I am trying to decide if I like #2 or #3 better. That for me is a really tough decision. They are both fantastic. I think you did a great job. Did you have a long shutter speed for these?

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments. To answer a few questions -- these were taken in Indiana, handheld with shutter speeds between 1/30 and 1/125. The first 3 were taken as I was hanging out the window of my car, stopped in the middle of the road each time.

    Here is a black and white photo of the graveyard that someone requested. I would have taken a better shot but it looked like there was some sort of service going on and I didn't want to get in the way.

    I like it. I've tried taking pictures and I must say, it's not as great compared to yours.

    Maybe I should take them in B&W. It seems to be more appropriate.

    Big Bully, I think the second one is better than the third one. TBH though, I'm not a fan of the fourth. It's boring for me. Although the B&W version's a bit more interesting.

    Anyways. I like #2 the most. You should frame it or something.
